Given the starting pitching match-up, on paper, the Rockies may actually have the rare road advantage in this game. Leake has been pretty terrible for the Reds wherever he's pitched this season, and is the type of control RHP that Rockies bats have hit well, while Guthrie has been effective for the Rockies when on the road. Add in the Rockies somewhat out of the ordinary and continued ability to hit at Great American Ballpark, particularly relative to their performance at other away venues, and you have a combination that might be ripe for the team's third win in a row and first series win this month.
