Rockies Game #81 Preview: Jhoulys Chacin vs. Matt Garza

Stephen Dunn

Rockies look for a win in Milwaukee with Jhoulys Chacin on the mound.

First things first, what major league team starts a game at 3:10 local time on a Saturday afternoon? That's just odd. Second, who is the calligrapher that wrote out the Brewers lineup? Excellent work.

Now, on to the game. The Rockies are looking for the rarest of rare things these days, a win. To try to find it they'll send Jhoulys Chacin to the mound. Since returning from injury, Chacin has been thoroughly unimpressive in 2014, with the control issues from earlier in his career having returned this season. Chacin has posted a 4.84 ERA and 4.2 BB/9 in 10 starts this season, but does have a 2.63 ERA in two career starts at Miller Park.

Against the righty. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has restored left-handed hitters Scooter Gennett and Lyle Overbay to his lineup this afternoon in place of Rickie Weeks and Mark Reynolds.

Milwaukee will have veteran right-hander Matt Garza on the mound today. The 30-year-old (does he seem a lot older than that to anyone else?) has been pretty average since signing a four-year, $50 million contract this winter. In 16 starts with the Brewers, he has posted a 4.01 ERA in 101 innings. He has a 4.81 ERA in four career starts against the Rockies.

The Rockies will restore Wilin Rosario to the lineup behind the plate and DJ LeMahieu at second base, with Josh Rutledge moving to third and Ryan Wheeler to first, with Justin Morneau getting a day off.
