Colorado Rockies game no. 117 thread: Tommy Henry vs Ryan Feltner

The Rockies look to take the series against the Diamondbacks in today’s rubber match.

After getting shut out and thumped last night by the Arizona DIamondbacks, the 51-65 Colorado Rockies are looking to end the homestand on a high note with back-to-back series wins. A win this afternoon against the Diamondbacks would seal a series win before the Rockies hit the road on Tuesday.

Pitching for the Diamondbacks is the left-handed rookie Tommy Henry. Henry made his major league debut on August 3rd against the Cleveland Guardians with a five inning start in which he gave up four earned runs. He then followed that up with a seven inning quality start against the Pittsburgh Pirates where he gave up just one earned run on four hits. The 25 year old southpaw was a competitive balance pick in the 2019 draft and features a five pitch arsenal. His four seam fastball sits in the low 90s and he also throws a slider, a curveball, a changeup, and a sinker.

On the bump for the Rockies is their own rookie in right-handed Ryan Feltner. Feltner is looking to rebound from consecutive difficult starts, most recently against the St. Louis Cardinals in which he gave up five earned runs in 5 23 innings with three walks. Feltner’s key issue this season has been the longball. He has given up a home run in seven of his ten appearances (nine starts) so far this year.
