Today's game is the last one between the Rockies and the Cubs for the season. The season series stands at 2-2 with the Cubs having won the two-game series at Wrigley Field back in May. The Rockies have a chance to sweep the Cubs at home with Jorge De La Rosa (3-3, 5.15 ERA) on the mound this afternoon. De La Rosa has not won since April and then missed all of May and June on the disabled list. He has lost two of his four starts since returning, and the Rockies are 1-3 overall in those starts. He struck out eight in each of his last two starts and pitched at least six innings as well.
Carlos SIlva (10-4, 3.76 ERA) opposes him and went 2-2 in his last four starts. Silva lost two straight in between his wins and failed to make it past the second inning in either contest.
Carlos Gonzalez, who hit for the cycle last night, is hitting .632/.600/1.211 in 20 plate appearances against the Cubs this season. In 35 career plate appearances against the Cubs, Gonzalez is hitting .559/.543/1.000.
