Marlins Vs. Rockies: Colorado Seeks Path To New Winning Streak

The Colorado Rockies and the Miami Marlins are back on the diamond for a Saturday evening contest one day after the Rockies saw a four-game winning streak come to an end. Miami prevailed with a 6-5 victory. A victory for the Rockies in Saturday's contest will assure at least a series split before the team hits the road for New York.

The Rockies start Tyler Chatwood (3-2, 4.28 ERA), who has won two games in a row entering Saturday's contest. He pitched five shutout innings against the San Francisco Giants and then followed that with six innings of two-run ball against the Milwaukee Brewers. Unlike other pitchers on the staff, Chatwood stayed around his pitch limit against the Brewers, allowing him to reach that sixth inning.

The Marlins will have Nate Eovaldi (3-8, 4.28) on the mound for his fifth start with the team. Miami acquired the right-hander from the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Hanley Ramirez deal. He is coming off a 4-0 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies, having allowed three runs in five innings. He allowed three runs in 5.2 innings at Coors Field back in June when he was still a Dodger.

The game's first pitch is set for 6:10 p.m. MT. ROOT Sports and 850 KOA will have coverage of the game.
