The Colorado Rockies shoot for win No. 50 of the season tonight at Coors Field and have their ace, Jon Gray, on the mound to make it happen. Gray was excellent in his return from the disabled list, striking out 10 D-backs last Friday.
Gray will have to be sharp again to keep a good Cincinnati Reds offense quiet. Kyle Freeland couldn’t do it last night, but Jeff Hoffman — a similar pitcher to Gray — kept the Reds mostly in check Monday. The Rockies really need that again tonight. Badly.
We’re desperate. Go get ‘em, Jon.
