Rockies game thread #122: Andrew Cashner vs. Jorge De La Rosa

JDLR (11-6, 3.26 ERA) is 7-1 with a 2.59 ERA at home while just 4-5 with a 3.84 ERA away from Coors Field. With a few more seaons like this, maybe we can get the national media to realize Coors has not been quite the hitter's paradise they make it out to be since the humidor's arrival. Those home statistics are a huge argument towards keeping Jorge around for his option year and potentially longer. The Rockies have won all three of his starts against the Padres this year, with De La Rosa going 2-0 in 16 innings pitched and a 3.38 ERA.

Andrew Cashner (8-6, 3.87 ERA) has faced the Rockies three times this year, twice as a starter. On April 6th he pitched two innings of relief, giving up two runs in a 6-3 Rockies win. In his first start against the Rockies, on June 6th at Coors Field, he allowed three runs in seven innings in a game the Padres won in the 12th inning. However, on the 10th of July, the Rockies got their revenge against him, getting three runs (two earned) in a 5-4 Rockies win in San Diego.
