Colorado Rockies Game No. 2 Thread: Tyler Anderson vs. Zach Davies

Tyler Anderson looks to prove 2016 wasn’t a fluke in his first start of the 2017 season

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

After a nail biter of a victory yesterday, the Rockies will send left-handed pitcher Tyler Anderson to the mound to face right hander Zach Davies.

Tyler Anderson looks to build off his fantastic 2016 debut, where he pitched 114 1/3 innings with a 3.54 ERA. If you don't know much about Anderson, just know that he was mentioned in the same sentence as Clayton Kershaw.

Davies had a strong first full season in the majors last year for the Brewers, where he pitched 163 1/3 innings with a 3.97 ERA.

The Rockies lineup remains the same as yesterday, but the Milwaukee Brewers changed things up a bit. Eric Thames will get the day off, and Jesus Aguilar will start at first base and hit sixth. Keon Broxton will move up in the lineup and hit second.
