The Rockies are coming off a series win against NL West rival’s the LA Dodgers. Dexter Fowler has been heating up again, and over the past nine games he’s hitting .406 (13-for-32) with 2 doubles, 2 home runs, 6 RBI, 9 runs, 11 walks and 1 HBP. His .568 OBP during those 9 games is tops in the Majors. One of his hits was the walk-off against the Dodgers Saturday and two of his HR’s came in Sunday’s game.
Cuddyer is also white-hot heading into Cincinnati. In his last 13 games he is hitting .429 / .463 / .755 with 4-doubles, 4-HR’s, 14-RBI’s and he’s been hit a pitch twice!
The team will have their “honorary ace” on the mound tonight, in the form of Tyler Chatwood. Chatwood (3-0, 2.12) has been masterful on the mound and is coming off a game where he struck out 10 over six innings. His counterpart, Bronson Arroyo (5-5, 3.75) will be making his 13th start this season, 11th career start against the Rockies. His last outing against the Indians he went 5 2/3 and gave up 5-runs on 8-hits with 2-HR’s.
The three game series will be the only one on the road before the team comes home for a 10 game stretch against the Padres, Nationals and Phillies.
