After last night's loss to Roy Halladay the Rockies counter with their top pitcher, Ubaldo Jimenez. Jimenez stands at 15 wins this season, and his opposing pitcher, Kyle Kendrick, gives the Rockies an edge in this game.
The Rockies are currently 2-6 on their 11-game road trip, which has been a disappointment to Rockies fans everywhere (to say the least). Picking up victories in the last three games of this series (yes, this series concludes on Monday) would be huge for the Rockies as they return home to face the Pirates, the Cubs, and the Giants.
The Rockies don't need to dig a deep hole for themselves at the start of the second-half of the season and then rely on a crazy run at the end of the season to make the playoffs. Win now, win early, and wind often.
