It's time for the Rockies to officially begin playing spoiler, as the NL Central leading Reds come to town riding a 7 game winning streak. The pitcher for the Reds will be Bronson Arroyo, who has been a league average pitcher for Cincinnati this year. Of course, his 3.98 ERA would lead all Rockies starters by a full point.
Then again, Drew Pomeranz (and Jeff Francis now) has been the closest thing Colorado has had to a league average starter with his 4.98 ERA.
As in most games, Colorado will hope for lots of runs in this one.
