New, 8 comments

Jordan Lyles will go for his third win as the Rockies look for their third win in a row against the Phillies.

The Rockies will send Jordan Lyles to the mound for the fourth time this season as they look to take the series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The 23-year-old Lyles has won two of his first three starts this year, posting a 4.32 ERA in 16 2/3 innings with five walks and 12 strikeouts.

The Phillies will counter with veteran right-hander Kyle Kendrick, who has a 3.50 ERA in three starts this season but is still looking for his first win. He posted a 4.70 ERA in 30 starts last season.

Kendrick has struggled in his career at Coors Field, with a 5.58 ERA in 30 2/3 career innings in Denver. He gave up seven runs in 4 1/3 innings in his lone start at Coors last season, surrendering home runs to Josh Rutledge and Carlos Gonzalez.

The Rockies lineup will be unchanged from last night's 12-1 win, with Drew Stubbs getting another start in center field after his three-hit day yesterday. The Phillies will also retain their lineup from last night, despite the fact that they only had two hits yesterday.
