The Colorado Rockies were limited to just one run by rookie pitcher Brandon Williamson on Tuesday as they lost 3-1 to even the series against the Cincinnati Reds. They look to take the rubber match before heading to Texas for a weekend series on Friday.
Austin Gomber (3-4, 6.30 ERA) will take the mound for the Rockies. Gomber has been excellent since giving up nine runs in two innings on April 19. In his last three starts, Gomber has recorded a quality start, including a 6 2⁄3 innings performance on May 12 in which he allowed three runs on five hits with six strikeouts.
Opposing him will be Graham Ashcraft (2-1, 3.95 ERA). Ashcraft has been solid for the Reds this season, in his previous start against the Miami Marlins on May 12 he allowed three runs on six hits in 5 2⁄3 innings of work.
