The Cubs are just 5-9 in their last 14 games and have fallen 2.5 games out of the second Wild Card spot. For them, this series represents an important chance to stop the bleeding.

The Rockies head back out on the road tonight where they've suddenly lost 14 of their last 18 games. If they want to avoid dropping 20 games under .500 by mid August, they better turn that around fast as 14 of their next 17 games are away from Coors Field with trips to St. Louis, Washington, and New York all on the horizon.

The Rockies will have their best road line up in quite some time though, with McKenry catching instead of Hundley being the only slight downgrade.
