Lineup vs Red’s

The Rockies start a 3 game series at the Great American Ballpark tonight, taking on a red-hot Red’s team that has a four game sweep of the Atlanta Braves out of the way and a six game winning streak heading into tonight.

Christian Friedrich will make the fourth start of his Major League career tonight.  Friedrich is 1-0 with a 1.38 ERA (13.0 ip, 2 er) in his first two career road games in the Majors.

On the other side of the field will be Reds right-handed pitcher Johnny Cueto.  Cueto, the Opening Day starter, is 1-1 with a 1.69 ERA (16.0 ip, 3 er) in three career starts against the Rockies.  He is currently 5-1 with a 1.97 ERA this season.

Missing from the lineup, as well as the dugout, will be Ramon Hernandez who was placed on the 15 day DL due to a left hand strain and have called Wil Nieves up to replace him.

Also in the news today is Jhoulys Chacin, who has finally found out the extent of his injury.

Chacin has an injury to his pectoral minor muscle involving a nerve entrapment. There’s no structural damage to his biceps, shoulder or elbow. This can be addressed through mobilization and strengthening exercise, but he won’t be allowed to throw for another few weeks at least.

Scutaro [2B]
Colvin [CF]
Gonzalez [LF]
Tulowitzki [SS]
Helton [1B]
Cuddyer [RF]
Pacheco [3B]

I was impressed the way the Rox came out and immediately got 2 after Cincy tied it.

Uh oh, the Fowler/Colvin debate rages on. Let’s be civil fellas.

On another note, Tyler Matzek last night:
7ip, 3h, 0 er, 2 bb, 7 ks
Second straight outstanding outing for him. Let’s hope the light has finally come on for the kid

I love the headline on the Post’s sports page this morning: “Rockies finally have winning streak”….

2 games? That’s setting the bar pretty low. That being said…its nice to watch and see a win so I’m not grumpy the rest of the night!

Lets do it again.

Let’s see if we can make it 3 in a row. The 2009 run started when we won the last game of the series in Houston and went on to sweep STL and Milwaukee. Hope it’s the start of another long run. Get the sweep despite Sunday’s lineup. Then come home with momentum and get rolling. This is how I’m taking it one game at a time in the division race: Just focus on staying in touch with second place… Read more »
