The Rockies look to avoid their fifth straight loss while trying to get win number 60 in 2014. They'll send Franklin Morales to the hill against Shelby Miller of the Cardinals. Morales has pitched the second most innings for the Rockies this year, with 134 2/3 coming into the game. Unfortunately, they've been pretty bad innings (5.30 ERA, 1.61 WHIP, 82 ERA+). Even more unfortunate, but he has been better than most the Rockies have thrown out there this year.
Another game without Kyle Parker. Ben Paulsen steps in for Justin Morneau this time.

The Cardinals are 2.5 games up in the Central entering the game. Must be nice to have that to worry about.
