The Colorado Rockies picked up their first home series victory on Tuesday, their first since they took two of three from the Los Angeles Dodgers at the start of June. On Wednesday, the Rockies can pick up a home series sweep, something they have failed to do since the end of May when the team swept the Houston Astros in four games.
Guillermo Moscoso (0-1, 8.23 ERA) is picking up a spot start in place of Drew Pomeranz for the Rockies. He made two starts for the Rockies over late April and early May before heading back to Triple-A Colorado Springs for the rest of the latter month. He came back to the big leagues in June and pitched out of the pen for the Rockies. He had one particularly nasty stint that saw him allow eight runs over two innings to the Washington Nationals.
The opposing pitcher will be Mark Rogers (0-1, 4.08 ERA), the fifth overall pick in the 2004 draft. He's only made seven career starts before this game, making for a disappointing pro career. In his most recent start, though, Rogers threw seven innings of one-run, three-hit ball while striking out eight.
This game will be heard on 850 KOA or seen on MLB.tv for those out of market at 1:10 p.m. MT. ROOT Sports will not televise the game.
