For the fourth consecutive day, the Rockies have a day game. Thanks a bunch, Chicago and your history and tradition.

Today's matchup features Tyler Chatwood in his Wrigley Field debut, and Jon Lester taking the mound for the Cubs. Both pitchers were stellar in their season debuts and closer to average in their second starts. Chatwood enters the game at 1-1 with a 4.38 ERA and Lester at 1-0 with a 2.77.

Carlos Gonzalez is riding a 21 game hitting streak going back to last season, and another hit on Sunday would put him within six games of Nolan Arenado's franchise record.

Trevor Story has yet to homer in the series, and a failure to do so today would make this the first series of the season in which he has failed to hit a home run.

With a victory, the Rockies would win their second series in a row, their third of the year, and their second out of two on the road. A loss will drop them back to .500.
