Antonio Senzatela looks to continue to solidify his spot in the rotation as the Rockies face Jered Weaver and the Padres Tuesday night.

Losers of two straight, the Rockies will attempt to get their offense going as they face the soft-tossing veteran on the mound for San Diego. Weaver has made one start so far this year, and his fastball topped out at 85.9 mph. He allowed four earned runs in five innings while walking three and striking out two.

Senzatela, whose fastball averaged 94.3 mph and touched 97.5 mph in his lone start this year, will be making his second start of the season. He made his debut in Milwaukee last week, and he put up solid numbers. He went five innings, allowing three walks and two hits. He also struck out six.

There's a notable change in the Rockies lineup, as Trevor Story will get his first night off. Cristhian Adames will make his first start of the season in his place. It's not a huge surprise, as Story has a underwhelming slash line of .148/.281/.259 and could use a night off to help reset things.

Tonight's game starts at 6:40 PM.
