Colorado and St. Louis meet in the first 3 Tuesday night as both teams continue to flirt with the .500 mark.
The Rockies sit just a game over while the Cardinals are 2 games above the break-even mark heading into this one.
Colorado should be quite thankful for their 19-18 record this season.
This team has been one of the worst pitching staffs in baseball. They have allowed 5.19 runs per game on the season and sit 3rd last in the MLB with a team ERA of 4.95. However, a lot of that has come from them playing at Coors Field. They’ll get set for a road game, where that number drops to 3.38 and where they also have won 4 in a row.
Trying to make it 5 straight road games, the Rockies will send out RH Chad Bettis. After allowing 4 runs in 6.1 innings of work, Bettis will try to build off one of his better outings, especially with that one being at Coors Field. Bettis has seen the Cardinals in 3 career games (1 start) and sits with an ERA at 6.43.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals come in with some solid momentum here as they finished off their road trip 4-2 with a Sunday Night Baseball win over the Dodgers.
St. Louis sits 2 games above the .500 mark, but they still find themselves 8.0 games out of first place behind the Cubs. Right now, their main focus must be not to dig themselves any deeper of a whole, as the Cubs hot start has certainly caused a lot of problems for this Cardinals team.
St. Louis is just 9-10 at home this year, a place where they dominated last season.
The Cardinals will send out LH Jaime Garcia, who hasn’t allowed an earned run over his last 2 wins. Garcia has struggled mightily against the Rockies though in his career. He is 0-3 with an 8.76 ERA in five starts.
