In a match up winless pitchers, Yohan Flande (0-5, 5.04) will toss against Vidal Nuno (0-6, 3.48) tonight at Coors Field. Franklin Morales goes back to the bullpen and the Rockies have decided to go to a six-man rotation to finish out the season. Eddie Butler will be the #6 pitcher.
One game separates the Rockies (61-91) and the Diamondbacks (62-90) in the race for the #3 overall draft pick (unless Texas go on a winning binge & apparently Houston has #2 pick). Colorado needs two more victories to avoid the 100-loss season.
