The Sim Rockies return home after going 0.500 on a six-game road trip. They will be taking on the Sim Giants with a chance to gain ground in the division race. Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado are heating up as each enjoyed a nice performance on the road. Sam Hilliard has been swinging a hot bat as well, hitting home runs in each of the last two games. Kyle Freeland will take the mound for the Rockies, coming off a decent start against the Sim Twins where he earned the win but gave up three home runs. Freeland last faced the Giants in May where he pitched well giving up two runs in six innings of work. His line on the season coming into today’s game is 77 ⅔ IP, 4.17 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, 43 K.

The Sim Giants will be handing the ball to Drew Smyly, who in his last start against the Rockies cruised to a complete game shutout. The Sim Rockies are playing better ball of late and have made some roster changes so don’t expect them to suffer the same fate this time around.
