Home sweet home. The Colorado Rockies continue to find ways to win games at home. After winning last nights game, the Rockies have improved to a 17-12 home record. Colorado will now try to continue this trend and go for win number 18 in game two of a three game series against the Texas Rangers.
The Rangers are definitely struggling right now as they have now lost seven consecutive games, the longest active streak in the league. Hoping to break that streak will be old friend and now 30-year-old right hander Jordan Lyles (2-4, 5.79 ERA). Lyles has had a difficult first couple months of the season as he’s given up three or more runs in eight of his eleven starts. He also has not gone farther than six innings in any start this year. Although very familiar with Coors Field, Lyles has not had much success in Denver. In 59 career games at Coors Field, both as a Rockies player and a visitor, Lyles has a 5.75 ERA. This will be Lyles’ first game back in Denver since 2018.
Making his eleventh start of the season for the Rockies will be Antonio Senzatela (1-5, 4.97 ERA). After finishing April with a 5.76 ERA, Senzatela has been much better with a 3.86 ERA in the month of May. Now in June, Senzatela will try to build off of this by continuing to pitch well at home (4.35 ERA). He’ll have to do it today against a club he has never faced in his career. Out of all the Rangers batters on this club, Senzatela has only ever faced Khris Davis and Jonah Heim before.
