Look­ing ahead

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

Rock­ies RHP Jeff Hoff­man (5-1, 4.15 ERA) at Mets LHP Steven Matz (2-2, 3.05), 11:10 a.m. Sun­day, AT&T Sport­snet; 850 AM

The Rock­ies don’t have an ace right now. In­deed, they might not have a le­git­i­mate ace this sea­son, but Hoff­man has given his team a lift, es­pe­cially on the road where he’s 3-0 in four starts with a 1.67 ERA. Colorado needs in­nings from its starters, and lately, Hoff­man has pro­vided them, pitch­ing seven in­nings in each of his last two out­ings. The rookie has never faced the Mets. Matz, who missed time early this sea­son be­cause of el­bow is­sues, had been pitch­ing ef­fec­tively un­til his last start, when he lasted only 4L in­nings in a 6-0 loss at St. Louis. The Cardinals lit up Matz for five runs on seven hits. The Rock­ies beat Matz last sum­mer at Citi Field, bang­ing him for 10 hits over six in­nings.
