The Colorado Rockies and the Houston Astros took Tuesday off following the former team's victories in a doubleheader on Memorial Day. They are back on the field on Wednesday night for Game 3 of this four-game series.
The Rockies have Christian Friedrich (2-1, 5.09 ERA) on the mound, and he will be looking to win back-to-back games. He allowed three runs in a victory against the Cincinnati Reds last Friday. He allowed seven hits and struck out six in five innings of work. It was a solid rebound from his previous start when he allowed eight runs over five innings in a loss to the Seattle Mariners.
The Astros will counter with Lucas Harrell (4-3, 3.72 ERA). The Rockies saw Harrell back on April 7 in Houston, which turned into a 7-4 loss. Harrell shut out the Rockies for seven innings and limited them to three hits. After a string of starts in May that saw him fail to pitch out of the sixth inning, Harrell threw 7.1 innings of one-run ball on the road against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
