The Colorado Rockies will look to pick themselves up after two straight late-game losses. After Sunday's eighth-inning loss to the Padres, the Rockies returned home and faced the Philadelphia Phillies. All looked well until Huston Street allowed a two-run homer to John Mayberry to tie the game. Shane Victorino nailed it shut with a homer in the top of the 10th inning.
Jhoulys Chacin's sterling effort was wasted, and on Tuesday the Rockies will look to Aaron Cook for a strong start. Those have been few and far between for Cook, who is 2-5 with a 5.05 ERA. However, Cook is coming off his best start of the season, having thrown seven shutout innings against the Dodgers on the road. He picked up his second straight win and his second of the season. He is 1-6 with a 6.05 ERA in 11 career appearances (10 starts) against the Phillies.
Kyle Kendrick (5-5, 3.52 ERA) was hit hard by the Rockies in a May start at Citizens Bank Park. The Rockies touched him up for five runs in three innings, eventually winning 7-1. In his last two starts, Kendrick has allowed seven runs over 12 combined innings. He has three career starts in Coors Field, but a 6.35 ERA and no win-loss record.
First pitch is scheduled for 6:40 p.m. MT.
