Good pitching matchup today as the Rockies attempt to win their second consecutive series over an NL East opponent in as many weekends. Pomeranz hasn't made a start in nine days thanks to the All-Star break, but he was very good in his last outing, allowing just one hit and two walks in 6.1 scoreless innings in Washington. Meanwhile, Hamels pitched a perfect inning in the All-Star Game, but gave up four runs in his start before that. Hamels has faced the Rockies once this year, as he allowed two runs on six hits in eight innings in a 7-2 win on June 19th in Philadelphia. He'll obviously want to replicate that today, but the Rockies are certainly a different animal at their home park (although they don't always show it against quality pitchers).
