Know Your Foe #15: Rockies look to correct past mistakes against Royals

New, comments

Kansas City Royals (17-25, 7.5 GB, 4th AL Central)

Previous Results vs. Royals: In 2007, the Rockies lost the series 1-2 at Coors Field. Jorge De La Rosa pitched against the Rockies that series, allowing two runs in 6 1/3 innings in the first game of the series. In that game, Manuel Corpas belw the save and took the loss by surrendering four runs. After a win in the second game, the Rockies bullpen had a meltdown in extra innings when Ramon Ramirex allowed five runs in the 1th inning.

In 2008, the Royals swept the Rockies and let's not remember much of that three-game road series.

Roylas in their last two series: 1-1 series split with Baltimore; 2-0 series victory over Cleveland

Friday-Sunday: 3-game series @ Kauffman Stadium
