Colorado Rockies Game No. 35 Thread: Zack Greinke vs. German Márquez

The Rockies look to avoid another sweep

The Rockies lost 9-2 at the hands of the Diamondbacks yesterday and Kyle Freeland didn’t look like himself. However, today is a new day and German Márquez will be on the mound against the Snakes. It should be a good old fashioned pitchers duel since he’s up against Diamondbacks’ ace Zack Greinke, who is 5-1 with a 3.27 ERA in seven starts. He got roughed up in his first start against the Dodgers, where he gave up seven earned runs (four homers) in 3 23 innings. However, Greinke has posted a 2.01 ERA in April and has led his team to six consecutive victories. Márquez is 3-2 in seven starts with a 2.93 ERA and the last time he took the mound against the Brewers, he took a perfect game into the sixth inning. Today should, hopefully, be a well-pitched game on both sides as the Rockies look to avoid the sweep at the hands of another division rival.
