Colorado Rockies simulation game no. 17 thread: Jon Gray vs. Joey Lucchesi

Can the Rockies bounce back from Tuesday’s collapse?

For the eighth time in this young sim season, the SimRockies will be back in action against the SimPadres, but tonight they will be looking for vindication after blowing an 8-2 lead they held until the seventh inning before falling 9-8 on Tuesday. The Rockies (8-8) will be hoping Jon Gray can go the distance to avoid relying on a bullpen that collapsed Tuesday. Gray is 1-2 on the season with a 3.60 ERA and 1.330 WHIP. Gray faced some bad luck in his last start on April 8 when he took a line drive to the groin and left the game after 3 2/3 innings. Luckily, the injury wasn’t serious enough to cause Gray to miss any time.

Joey Luchhesi will be on the mound for the NL West-leading Padres.

Start Time: 8:15 p.m. MT

Tonight’s game ran into some video technical problems (still blame the squirrels) and video will be available from the fourth inning to the end. However, the play-by-play is available throughout and is again top notch.
