Today’s Matchup – May 17, 2011


It’s almost poetic that the Rockies biggest win comes just two days after their hardest loss

On the heels of perhaps the biggest win of the season, in which the Rockies tagged NL West foe Tim Lincecum for seven runs, the Rockies look to sweep the defending World Champs and retake first place in the division.

Chris Iannetta gets the start behind the plate today after an extra day off. He’ll catch Ubaldo Jimenez today to try to get Jimenez back on track.

What a great time this would be for Ubaldo’s first win.

Game #40: Jonathan Sanchez (3-2, 3.68 ERA) vs. Ubaldo Jimenez (0-3, 6.67 ERA)
