Chad Bettis faces off against Tim Hudson in the final game of the series

The Rockies try to split the series against the Giants today

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Chad Bettis takes on Tim Hudson in the final game of the series.

Bettis will make his third start of the season for the Rockies. He enters the game with a 5.73 ERA in limited action. Carlos Gonzalez, DJ LeMahieu, and Wilin Rosario are all getting the day off. Nolan Arenado is in the starting lineup again after playing two yesterday. Like Troy Tulowitzki, Arenado wants to play all the time, and he'll make the case to do so. Given that he experienced back spasms on Friday night, it's somewhat surprising that he's in the staring lineup for three games in two days. But then again, that might just mean that the spasms were a non-issue.

The 39 year old Hudson enters the game with a 4.01 ERA. He's making his ninth start of the year and his third against the Rockies—the Rockies won one of those games and the Giants the other. In the 14.1 innings Hudson has pitched agains the Rockies this season, he has a 3.86 ERA. For his career, Hudson has started nine games at Coors Field, where he owns a 6.80 ERA.
