The Colorado Rockies look to split the series with the Cardinals

The Rox play game four of their series with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The Rockies will look to split the series this afternoon as they take on the Cardinals behind lefty Yohan Flande, who is coming off of his first career win. Flande enters the game with an ERA of 3.68 and a WHIP of 1.32. With a lefty opposing them, the Colorado Rockies will give Kyle Parker his first start of the season. Parker hit .279/.357/.495 against lefties while in Albuquerque and will be hoping to flash his stuff as he fights for a permanent spot at the highest level. DJ LeMahieu will hit third in front of Arenado. Although I thought DJ would improve in the hitting department, I never would've predicted that he'd be hitting third, but he's done very well this year at the plate and is hitting for a line of .326/.383/.420.

The Cards will trot out Jaime Garcia, who owns an ERA of just 2.00 and a WHIP of 0.89. They're making two changes to their lineup from yesterday's game, with Tony Cruz and Mark Reynolds replacing Yadier Molina and Brandon Moss respectively.
