The Sim Rockies struggled heading into the break, going 4-6 in their last ten games. Hopefully after a few days off they are fresh and ready to turn things around, but it will be a tall order as the NL East-leading Braves head into town. Nolan Arenado, the Sim Rockies lone All-Star, leads the way at the plate with a slash line of .326/.402/.632 and 27 home runs. German Márquez will take the mound for the Rockies. He is coming off of a very nice start against the Brewers where he pitched seven strong innings and earned his seventh win of the season. His season line coming into today’s game is 7-8, 89 ⅔ IP, 6.22 ERA, 1.67 WHIP, 87 K.
The Sim Braves will be handing the ball to Max Fried, who brings a record of 4-6 and an ERA of 5.32.
