Aaron "The Stopper" Cook (3-1) will take the mound for the Rockies, facing Eric Milton and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Milton made his first start of the season after not pitching in most of 2007, nor all of 2008. He has a 4.50 ERA afer his lone appearance. Cook pitched a gem in his last outing in Atlanta, going the distance in an easy 9-0 victory over the Braves. As long as he keeps the ball down, the Rox should improve drastically upon last night's 10-run shellacking.

Brad Hawpe is out of the lineup tonight with a strained groin, which isn't great news for Colorado. Hopefully, the combination of Matt Murton and Ryan Spilborghs can make up for the prolific offense that Hawpe provides.
