More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies head back out to the American League, facing the Oakland Athletics for a three-game mid-week series beginning tonight in Oakland at the O.Co Coliseum. The A’s, who are struggling this year — but playing much better of late — are looking to jump over the Seattle Mariners and get out of the basement of the American League West by the end of the series.

The Rockies, like the A’s, have a shot to get out of the basement in this series, and they’ll get a better one later in the week when they face division foe Arizona for four games in Phoenix.

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, though — the A’s come first. As always, here are your probable pitchers, along with some keys for the Rockies as they look to win another series, and what you need to know about the relatively unknown (at least, for Rockies fans) Oakland Athletics.
