Colorado Rockies Game #34: Mike Pelfrey vs. Jason Hammel

Loading Scores

The Rockies' can wash away the rancid taste of that road trip a bit by clinching a series win a day early this evening.  Tonight's match-up pits two lanky right-handers that have surprised a bit in their 2011 production.

Mike Pelfrey was New York's Opening Day starter, coming off a season in which he started 9-1 with a 2.39 ERA.  He stumbled down the stretch and out of the gate this season with a double digit ERA through three games, but has rebounded with two solid starts in his past three, including his most recent outing - a 4 hit, one run performance over 7.2 IP against the Giants in New York.

On the other hand, one of those good performances saw 19 fly balls get eaten up by Citi Field and one came against the Giants.  He has allowed at least four earned runs in each of his four road starts

Jason Hammel, on the other hand, appears to be having a career season so far.  Through six starts, he is 3-1 with a 2.63 ERA and has allowed just two runs combined over his last three starts.  Unfortunately, his strikeout and walk rates are the worst they have been since he has been in Colorado, so his run of success will likely catch up to him.  Hopefully not tonight.
