Jorge De La Rosa will go up against Rubby De La Rosa this afternoon at Chase Field as the Rockies take on the Diamondbacks in the final game of the teams' series. The Rockies have dropped four straight and have won just one of their last eight games.

Rubby De La Rosa (6-3, 4.60 ERA) has had a fine run of form lately, compiling a record of 2-0 in his last four starts with an ERA of just 1.30. In his last start against the Rockies, Rubby De La Rosa went seven innings while holding the Rockies to one run.

The Rockies have gone on to win in seven of the last eight games Jorge De La Rosa has started. De La Rosa's most recent start against the A's was a good one; he allowed just four hits over seven shutout innings.

Troy Tulowitzki enters the day with a 17-game hit streak and has reached base in 32 straight games, the latter of which is the longest active streak in the majors.

Daniel Descalso gets the start at third and Michael McKenry replaces Nick Hundley. CarGo comes back in as Stubbs takes the bench and Ben Paulsen replaces Rosario at first in the day's other lineup changes.
