Colorado Rockies game no. 70 thread: Brandon Woodruff vs Germán Márquez

Following a three-game sweep of the San Diego Padres, the Rockies will continue to keep their momentum going at Coors as they face off against the NL Central-leading Brewers. Germán Márquez (4-6, 4.60 ERA) seemed to really be finding his groove lately, pitching to a 1.89 ERA over his previous six starts before getting beat up by the Cincinnati Reds this past Saturday. The eight earned runs allowed matched his season high, and making adjustments will be paramount to the Venezuelan righty’s success on Thursday. After the outing, Márquez said it was a “rough outing,” and “I have to take that outing off my brain and be ready for the next one.” It’s true that most of the hits allowed were singles or seeing-eye doubles. The Brewers’ 2.10 team batting average is the lowest in the National League, so now’s as good a time as any to refresh and lock back in to his dominant ways.

Colorado Rockies game no. 65 thread: Germán Márquez vs Wade Miley

After an absolute shellacking in the first game of the three-game set in Cincinnati, the Colorado Rockies look to bounce back an salvage their second road win of the trip. Ace Germán Márquez (4-5, 3.91 ERA) takes the mound for the Rockies and will look to build on a nice run that he has put together in his last six starts. Since having the worst outing of his career on May 4th in which he failed to get out of the first inning after allowing eight runs to the Giants, Márquez has been on an absolute tear. In his last six starts, Márquez has an ERA of 1.89 and a record of 3-2 due to a lack of run support.

Colorado Rockies game no. 60 thread: James Kaprielian vs Germán Márquez

It seems like so long ago that the Colorado Rockies swept the Texas Rangers, but its only been two games. The Rockies have since fell back to Earth, dropping two in a row to the Oakland Athletics for the series loss. It’s not been all bad, though: Brendan Rodgers finally hit his first big league home run, and Jhoulys Chacín was one pitch away from an immaculate inning. As the weather gets hotter in Colorado, the Rockies will look to do the same with a win against the A’s today to avoid the series sweep.

Germán Márquez carves himself a piece of history on his 700th career strikeout

The first game of Thursday’s double header against the New York Mets marked Rockies’ frontman Germán Márquez’s 120th career game in a big league uniform. He pitched a gem, throwing for six innings while allowing just three hits and striking out six. His one mistake came on a misplaced slider that barely squeaked out of the yard to give the Rockies the loss. What’s important, however, are those six strikeouts.

Colorado Rockies game no. 50 thread: Germán Márquez vs. Marcus Stroman

After yesterday’s postponement, the Rockies and Mets will finish their four game series today with a pair of 7-inning games. As a refresher, the Rockies had their four game win streak snapped on Tuesday and now they look to start a new one in the Big Apple. Tuesday’s game was dominated by the Mets pitching staff as they held the Rockies to just three hits for the fifth time this season. This will be the second time this season that the Rockies and Mets have had weather issues and been forced to play 7-inning doubleheaders.
