The Colorado Rockies are on the road as they play the final game of a three-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday afternoon. In the opening game of the series on Friday night, it was the Diamondbacks rolling to an 8-0 victory. The pitching matchup for the middle game of the series Saturday night saw Jon Gray take the mound for the Rockies against the Diamondbacks’ Robbie Ray.

Colorado dropped their fourth straight game as they were blanked on the road by Arizona Friday night.

Colorado finished with five hits in the game with no player picking up more than one. The Rockies were zero for five with runners in scoring position in the defeat. The lack of offensive production sent Antonio Senzatela (7-6) to the loss on the mound. He allowed seven runs on seven hits with two walks and a strikeout over 4.1 innings of work.
