Chad Bettis will try to even the series against Chase Anderson and the D'Backs

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Chad Bettis will start for the Rockies in the second game of the series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Bettis is looking to polish off an encouraging season in which he has pitched to a 4.38 ERA and 3.92 FIP. Bettis has shown the ability to pitch like a solid number three starter, and his contributions will be vital in the years ahead.

Opposing him is Chase Anderson, finishing up a solid, if unspectacular year. Anderson sports a 4.40 ERA and mediocre strikeout numbers, but he also doesn't issue many walks. That might play into the hands of the Rockies, who aren't particularly patient anyway.

The "A" lineup is back out there. Walt Weiss isn't bothering to rest the veterans. He's keeping Nolan Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez in the lineup as they chase the home run lead in the National League. Corey Dickerson and Justin Morneau already missed plenty of time this season, so they probably feel fresh. And the Rockies would love to showcase Jose Reyes for a few more games before the off-season commences.

The Rockies will look to even the series at one win apiece tonight.
