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.
