The Rockies had a tough series to begin their homestand. After a weather delay, the team got pummeled by Luis Castillo and the surging Mariners. They played a really solid game two of the series, with Cal Quantrill throwing a really good game, ending in a 2-1 win for the Rockies. Game three was tough for the Rockies as they got steam rolled yet again. the offense put up just four runs in the three games and continues to struggle. They ran into a buzz saw in the Mariners who are heating up and will have their hands full with one of the better teams int he National League.

Probable Starting Pitchers

  • Austin Gomber (0-1, 4.95 ERA) will kick things off to begin this series. Gomber's strikeout numbers have been impressive so far this season, with 18 strikeouts in 20 innings and 15 over his last 15.1 innings. He also looks like he may have figured something out with 0 walks in his last outing of 5.1 innings, after walking eight in his first three starts over 14.2 innings. Gomber is in a very important year this year and will need to be around the zone, as well as possess the strikeout stuff he has shown this year, especially against a very solid lineup that the Padres have.
  • Dylan Cease (2-1, 1.99 ERA) will start game one of the series against the Padres. Coming off an offseason where his name was thrown around constantly in trade rumors, Cease ended up on a very talented Padres team and has rewarded them greatly. One of the early favorites for the CY Young Award, Cease has been very good this year. In his last three starts, he's thrown 18 innings, surrendering just eight hits and three runs. He has also managed 21 strikeouts during that span. Where the Rockies could take advantage is in Cease's control. In that same timeframe, Cease has walked nine batters with five in his last outing. The Rockies have really been struggling, but if they want to turn things around, they will need to be patient, while taking advantage of any and all scoring opportunities if they want to have a chance in this one.
