Look­ing ahead

Rock­ies RHP Jon Gray (2-0, 3.75 ERA) at Mets RHP Ja­cob deGrom (9-3, 3.65), 5:10 p.m. Fri­day, AT&T Sport­sNet*; 850 AM

Gray has won both of his starts since re­turn­ing from a bro­ken foot that wiped out most of the first half of his sea­son. He also hit a 467-foot homer in his last start. If the Rock­ies are go­ing to stay in the play­off hunt, they need Gray to shoul­der a big part of the load. All-star third base­man Nolan Are­nado says deGrom is one of the tough­est pitch­ers he faces. Are­nado is only 1-for-12 vs. deGrom, and the Rock­ies have hit just .165 against him. DeGrom is on a roll, hav­ing won five con­sec­u­tive starts. He al­lowed four solo home runs against the Car­di­nals last Fri­day, but he man­aged to make it through seven in­nings.
