The Rockies attempt to maximize their Coors Field advantage to compensate for their 4-7 road record. They are currently 4-2 at Coors Field. While going 3-4 on a recent road trip, the Rockies batted just .217 with RISP. Of course, they’re a different team at Coors Field, where they’re batting .356 in such scenarios so far this season. Philadelphia Phillies will turn to their own version of patchwork rotation starting with Jonathon Pettibone who is filling in for Cole Hamels tonight. The Rockies will be happy to miss Cliff Lee’s turn as the hitters tend to sputter vs. top-tier LH starters (Quintana, Miley, Bumgarner). Kyle Kendrick and Roberto Hernandez will take their turns on Saturday and Sunday respectively. Tyler Chatwood, Jordan Lyles, and Juan Nicasio will ply their craft this weekend.
