Probable Starting Pitchers

  • Cal Quantrill (0-1, 9.00 ERA) will make his home debut as a Rockies pitcher as he will look to get an early second shot at the Diamondbacks. In his first start, he was able to work through five innings, but gave up nine hits and five runs. His start in Chicago didn't go well as he gave up four runs over four innings, but what hurt him the most were the walks. For a guy that has built his career on limiting hard contact and not walking batters, Quantrill has walked five batters in just nine innings. He doesn't have the swing and miss stuff to get away with that, so he will need to be aggressively smart against a potent Diamondbacks lineup.
  • Merrill Kelly (1-0, 1.98 ERA) will square off against the Rockies and the Rockies will have to be on their "A game" against Kelly. He dominated the Rockies on the second game of the year, going 6.2 innings, allowing only one run, with no walks and eight strikeouts. Kelly was solid in his second start of the year against the daunting Yankee lineup, throwing seven innings, giving up only two runs and one walk, though he only struck out four. The Rockies will look to take advantage of the thin Colorado air, something that they haven't been able to do against Kelly. In three starts in Colorado, Kelly has thrown 19 innings, with an incredible 1.89 ERA, and he has struck out a batter per nine with 19 strikeouts.
