The Rockies are needing to lockdown the win this afternoon against the Astros before heading back to Coors Field to finish their four-game series. Last night, Kyle Freeland threw another quality start, but lack of offense to back K-Free led the Astros to take Game 1.
Today, Antonio Senzatela will be on the mound and is going for his fourth win in five starts opposite former NL West rival Zack Greinke. Greinke is 1-0 and holds a 2.53 ERA so far this season, and has been known to pitch well against Colorado. In 34 starts against the Rockies, Greinke possesses the highest win total over any other opponent. He is 14-7 with a 3.66 ERA against the Rockies in his career.
