Rockies Open Interleague Series vs. Oakland Tonight

Coming off a three-game sweep by the visiting Los Angeles Angels (32-29), the Colorado Rockies (24-35) will try to end a five-game losing tonight with Jeremy Guthrie scheduled to take the mound for Colorado against the Oakland Athletics (26-35) at 6:40 at Coors Field (TV: Root Sports).

In sending right-hander Jeremy Guthrie to the mound, Colorado won’t exactly have an ideal stopper. Guthrie was hit hard in his last start, allowing seven runs and 11 hits in just 3 1/3 innings last Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. Guthrie has allowed at least five earned runs in three of his last four starts, and his spot in the Rockies’ rotation is looking more and more tenuous.

“I don’t take anything for granted,” Guthrie said after his last start. “If they kicked me off the team today, it wouldn’t surprise me. I haven’t earned a spot here. I haven’t pitched very well.”

Though he went 0-for-4 in Sunday’s series finale against the Angels, Colorado infielder Chris Nelson has been hot since his June 1 return from a left-wrist injury, going 4-for-10 before Sunday, after hitting .219 before landing on the disabled list.

The Rockies have the best record in Interleague Play since 2006 at 56-43, but have gone 0-6 so far this season. The A’s are 1-5 in Interleague Play this season.
