Coming off of a four-game, two-city sweep at the hands of the Houston Astros, the Colorado Rockies will host the Milwaukee Brewers in a three-game series at Coors Field.

The Brewers did not fare any better in interleague play this week, losing four straight to the Kansas City Royals. Milwaukee has lost six straight overall.

The Brewers have gone righty-heavy in their lineup against Rockies southpaw Jorge De La Rosa, with first baseman Jason Rogers and second baseman Hernan Perez getting starts in place of regulars Adam Lind and Scooter Gennett, who are both left-handed bats. Rodgers will bat sixth, while Perez hits eighth.

Colorado, meanwhile, will go with its regular lineup, including a ninth-straight start for shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who bats third. Ben Paulsen will play first base and bat sixth with Brandon Barnes batting eighth in left field against Brewers right-hander Taylor Jungmann.

First pitch at Coors Field is at 6:40 p.m. Mountain time.
