The Colorado Rockies couldn’t end their drought of winning a series at home this weekend against the Miami Marlins, and now they face the best team in baseball.

More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies only took one of three games from the Miami Marlins in a tough weekend at Coors Field, continuing their drought of being unable to win a series at home.

That hurts, especially considering the club now has a big test coming to Coors Field. Although, at 25-30, the Rockies are certainly in a better position now than they were two weeks ago.

Nevertheless, the Rockies now face the best team in baseball, at least by winning percentage, as the St. Louis Cardinals come to town for three games. Here are the probable pitchers for this week’s three-game set, plus some key focus points on the Rockies, and a little bit more on the Cardinals.


Monday, June 8, 6:40 pm
David Hale (1-0, 4.26) vs. John Lackey (4-3, 2.93)

Tuesday, June 9, 6:40 pm
Jorge De La Rosa (2-2, 6.15) vs. Michael Wacha (8-1, 2.18)

Wednesday, June 10, 1:10 pm
Chad Bettis (2-0, 2.70) vs. Carlos Martinez (6-2, 2.94)
