Look­ing ahead

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

White Sox LHP Car­los Rodon (1-1, 1.59 ERA) at Rock­ies LHP Kyle Free­land (8-7, 4.09), 1:10 p.m. Sun­day, ROOT; 850 AM It was not his worst out­ing of the year. But in Free­land’s last start — a loss to the Reds at Coors Field in which he al­lowed five runs on eight hits in 5L in­nings — he took the brunt of his man­ager’s ire in a long, midgame meet­ing on the mound. Free­land then re­bounded to re­tire the next eight bat­ters he faced. Per­haps it was a rookie learn­ing mo­ment. But by sta­tis­ti­cal mea­sure, Free­land has been Colorado’s sec­ond- or third-best start­ing pitcher this sea­son. His growth re­mains key to the Rock­ies’ sec­ond half. Mon­day: All-star break
