Jorge De La Rosa will attempt to secure the rubber match for the Colorado Rockies against the Texas Rangers

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The Rockies have not pitched well this series, but if Jorge De La Rosa can turn in a solid performance they will escape with a series victory nonetheless. JDLR is coming off an inefficient start against the Padres in which he gave up two home runs and walked three in five innings of work.

Martin Perez opposes the Rockies today. He's making his second start of the year; in his first he allowed three runs in five innings.

Charlie Blackmon is getting the day off against the lefty, so everyone's position in the batting order slots up. Carlos Gonzalez is back in right after sitting out yesterday.

Today's early game starts at 1:10. After giving up seven and nine runs in the past two games, hopefully JDLR can bring respectability back to Rockies pitching.
