Look­ing Ahead

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

Phillies RHP Vince Ve­lasquez (2-6, 4.91 ERA) at Rock­ies LHP Kyle Free­land (11-7, 3.71), 6:40 p.m., AT&T Sport­sNet

Since July 9, when he took a no-hit­ter into the ninth in­ning at Coors Field, Free­land has ap­peared in four games, three of them starts and one a long-re­lief ap­pear­ance. In that stretch, the rookie lefty has a 1.99 ERA and a .185 bat­ting av­er­age against him. He’s rolling. Even his nine-hit out­ing against the Na­tion­als in D.C. last week ended in vic­tory af­ter he gave up just three runs. Ve­lasquez, in his third sea­son, has been un­suc­cess­ful against the Rock­ies. Six Colorado hit­ters have a ca­reer av­er­age bet­ter than .350 against him, led by Car­los Gon­za­lez, who is 5-for-9 in the matchup.
