More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies won their second home series of the season over the weekend when they took two of three games from the Milwaukee Brewers. Now, they face the surging and surprising Arizona Diamondbacks — a team flirting with .500, even though they were supposed to be the NL West’s other doormat at the start of the year — in a three-game series in the middle of the week, before the Rox head back out on the road over the weekend.

The Rockies have some good things going for them this series (Jorge De La Rosa will start a home day game on Thursday), and some bad things (Kyle Kendrick is still in the rotation), but all things considered, this could be a winnable series for the Rox… or a disaster. Yeah.
