Game 71: Justin Verlander vs. Aaron Cook

New, 466 comments

This Sunday game is unusual in that the Rockies have already won the series. They're going for a three game sweep today, which would be a first this season (the Rockies have swept two and four game series, but not a three gamer). It will be a tall order though, as their opponent will be sending out fireballer (and twice a no-hitter) Justin Verlander. Aaron Cook will have to be on top of his game and assume that three runs allowed is too many.

I'd like to see a three game sweep -- and to see the Rockies above .500 again. That would be nice.
