The Colorado Rockies have two objectives on their plates for tonight’s middle-of-the-series match-up with the Arizona Diamondbacks: hold-down the hits, and get some hits. Right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (3-3, 4.07) will take the hill for the Rockies against Arizona’s Ian Kennedy (2-3, 4.72) at 6:40 pm MDT at Coors Field in Denver. The Diamondback’s Patrick Corbin dominated Colorado in Monday’s cool and damp loss, and the Rockies will seek to regain the game lost in the Standings.
Chacin took the loss in Thursday’s fall-from-ahead loss to San Francisco. He allowed 8 runs and 9 hits in
5-1/3 innings of work, and will be looking to rebound from the shaky outing. The right-handed Kennedy beat Atlanta on Wednesday. He went 5, and surrendered 3 runs (2 earned) on 4 hits and 3 walks. He struck-out 7.
Walt Weiss has Charlie Blackmon on in right-field for Fumble-Fingers Young, batting 2nd. Jordan Pacheco is at 1st and DJ LeMahieu spells Josh Rutledge at 2nd. Cody Ross is on for Arizona with AJ Pollack getting a rest.
Skies in LoDo will be partly cloudy with temperatures in the 60°s. It’ll be damp by Colorado standards. Wind will be brisk at game time, blowing in from right-field at 11 MPH, but will calm as the temperature falls. RoOt will have the TV broadcast as usual, with KOA 850 am handling radio for the gringos. Spanish radio is 1150 KNRV.
