Ace JDLR vs. Volquez tonight

Jorge De La Rosa will attempt to pick up his eighth victory tonight when he faces the Padres at 6:40pm MT. Once again the Rockies need to win out in this series to take the series. A tough loss last night had them losing the first game of the series again for seemingly the tenth straight series.

Walt Weiss continues to show his faith in EYJ by putting him in the lineup, but with a twist. Dexter Fowler and EYJ will bat 1 and 2 instead of the other way round. EYJ will play right field in place of Michael Cuddyer tonight. Might it because Cuddyer tweaked something tripping over first base last night trying to extend the inning and game on the last play? Yorvit Torrealba is behind the plate tonight in an attempt to prevent Wilin Rosario from going back into a deep slump.

With Arizona’s loss last night, the Rockies remain 2 1/2 games out while falling into a tie with idle San Francisco. The divisional rivalry is taking on increased importance this week as the Padres have crept back to within 3 1/2 games back of the second place teams. They need to win to stay in touch with the Dbacks. The game starts at 6:40 pm MT as usual on ROOT channel and 850 AM radio.

Tonight Rockies first draft pick Jonathon Gray pitches for Oklahoma against #4 LSU in the college super regionals. It will be televised on ESPN at 5:00 pm MT. You will get a chance to evaluate him with your own eyes.

Shit, is this for real?

If Cargo is out for more than a game, the Rockies will have no choice: Colvin returns.
