Germán Márquez will look to turn things around for himself and the Rockies as he takes the mound tonight. Márquez’s is 2-5 this season and has a career-high of four consecutive losses. His most being this past Monday against the Padres where the Rockies were shut out 6-0. Márquez gave up five of those runs on eight hits in six innings. The Rockies bats came alive last night at Dodger Stadium featuring a grand slam from Kevin Pillar and solo shots off the bats of Raimel Tapia and Sam Hilliard. So, if the bats can do the same tonight, it will largely come down to pitching from Márquez and the bullpen.
Making a start in the Dodgers’ rotation is right-hander Tony Gonsolin. Gonsolin has been given a permanent role in the pitching rotation after Ross Stripling was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays. This season, Gonsolin has had four starts, all of which have been a no-decision, and sports a .51 ERA. In 17 2/3 innings pitched he has given up just nine hits and struck out 17 batters.
