The Colorado Rockies can start a winning streak on Monday when they visit the New York Mets at Citi Field.

The Colorado Rockies begin a seven-game road series on Monday when they play Game 1 of 4 against the New York Mets at Citi Field. The Rockies enter this contest with a win on Sunday and a 5-2 homestand at Coors Field.

Alex White (2-6, 5.74 ERA) has yet to pitch economically since the start of August, lasting just four innings in each of his last three starts. However, the Rockies have gone 2-1 in those games. In his last start, White allowed two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out three.

The Rockies will face knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (15-4, 2.89 ERA), who is making just his second career start against Colorado. He has alternated wins and losses in each of his last five starts, falling to the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday. He allowed five runs in the 6-1 loss.

First pitch for this game is scheduled for 5:10 p.m. MT. ROOT Sports and 850 KOA will have live coverage.
