The Colorado Rockies look to shake off an ugly loss on the road against the lowly Milwaukee Brewers on Monday as the two sides meet up again on Tuesday.
The Rockies look to avenge a shaky loss yesterday as they send Jon Gray to the mound here to face off against Chase Anderson as the visitors need to get back in the win column to ensure they keep their faint playoff hopes intact in the National League. Colorado had been on a tear a few weeks back and played their way back into the wild card hunt but they have since cooled off over their last ten games and needed a 4-1 stretch over the last five just to get to the .500 mark over that time. The Rockies do have a very solid lineup though and possess some of the best raw power in the MLB and while they still have some holes they need to address in their starting rotation they could be a team to watch out for next season if they do fall short of the postseason in 2016.

The Brewers on the other hand are the complete opposite as they have been dismal this season and while they too had a decent stretch of games after the all-star break they are still 17 games under .500 and are in a rebuilding mode. Milwaukee retained Ryan Braun at the trade deadline but they moved on from Jonathan Lucroy as well as relief pitchers Will Smith and Jeremy Jeffress and have plenty of space to bring in some new cornerstones as they will endure a lengthy offseason.
Colorado is 1-5 in their last six road games, 1-5 in Gray’s last six road starts, and 2-6 in his last eight starts on five days rest while the Brewers are 3-7 in their last 10 Tuesday games, 1-6 in their last seven overall, and 4-1 in their last five starts from Anderson against a team with a losing record. The Rockies were sloppy yesterday but they get one back here as Gray has been pretty solid and gives them the edge over the Brewers on this day.
