San Francisco Giants vs. Colorado Rockies
The Marlins are desperately trying to reach .500 and make a run at the NL East division leaders, as they send their ace to the mound in a series finale against the Rockies.
Colorado Rockies at Florida Marlins
The Rockies are a game below .500, and they haven’t exactly been the model of consistency this year, but there sure are reasons to be optimistic. The biggest reason for that is something that hasn’t been a strength for them for a long time – their pitching. They obviously have Ubaldo Jimenez – the second best pitcher in a ridiculous strong cast of National League pitchers so far this year. His ERA is a ridiculous 0.93, and he has been absolutely ferocious. He has lost just once, and that was in a seven inning, one run game in which his team totally let him down offensively. I expected him t be very good this year, and he has exceeded all expectations.
