Coming off their first win in seemingly forever, Colorado travels to Cincinnati (where they've historically had some success) to try and build some momentum.
Colorado has Christian Friedrich going tonight. Friedrich struggled in his lone Coors Field start, and unfortunately the Great American Ballpark has more in common with Coors than it does with Petco and AT&T, where Friedrich was very successful. I'm hopeful that he can rebound in a meaningful way with a quality start tonight.

Too bad the Rockies are running into the Johnny Cueto buzzsaw. In 9 starts this year, Cueto has pitched 59.1 innings with a 1.97 ERA and a 5-1 record. According to rWAR he's already been worth 2 wins. So good luck with that, Rockies.

Normally, I really like East Coast series because the games are over at a reasonable hour, but my plans are such tonight that the game wrap will probably be up well after the game ends. As such, overflow threads are scheduled for 6:15 and 7:45 tonight.
