MLB Preview: Jhoulys Chacin vs. Kyle Kendrick

The Colorado Rockies (27-23) look to get back on track as they take on the Philadelphia Phillies Monday night, beginning a three-game set.

Jhoulys Chacin will look to earn win number one on the season taking on a Phillies lineup that has been hitting of late. Chacin is coming off of a performance against the San Francisco Giants last Wednesday where he served up solo home runs to Hunter Pence and Pablo Sandoval. Chacin would go just 5.2 innings, giving up four hits, three runs, two walks, while striking out four. Jhoulys hasn’t received much run support in his four starts as the Rockies have combined for just seven runs.

Kyle Kendrick will counter for the Phillies as he too is looking for his first win this season. The righty is current 0-5 with a 4.53 ERA as Colorado defeated him earlier this season. Kendrick went seven innings back on April 19th against Colorado, giving up six hits, three runs, and three strikeouts. However, he is coming off of a rough outing against Miami where he gave up six runs on seven hits in just 5.2 innings pitched.

Rockies Lineup:

1: Charlie Blackmon – CF
2: Michael Cuddyer – RF
3: Troy Tulowitzki – SS
4: Carlos Gonzalez – LF
5: Wilin Rosario – C
6: Justin Morneau – 1B
7: Josh Rutledge – 2B
8: Charlie Culberson – 3B
9: Jhoulys Chacin – P

First-pitch between the Colorado Rockies and Philadelphia Phillies is scheduled for 5:05 PM ET, 3:05 PM MT.
