Colorado Rockies vs Cincinnati Reds
CINCINNATI -- The Colorado Rockies had to play a doubleheader on getaway day Thursday after Wednesday's game in Minnesota was rained out. The red-hot Rockies earned a split with the Twins and now head to Cincinnati where they'll begin a three-game series with the Reds at Great American Ball Park.
The weekend series features teams headed in opposite directions. Colorado (26-16) is 13-6 on the road, which was the best road record in the major leagues entering Thursday's action. Meanwhile, Cincinnati (19-21) has lost six straight after an encouraging start to the season.
In addition to taking on the rebuilding Reds, Friday also is a big day for the Rockies and shortstop Trevor Story, who will begin a minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A Albuquerque. Story has been hitting and fielding ground balls with no issues and appears fully recovered from a shoulder strain.Read More...
