A win this afternoon in the desert is good for a series split, which would be the best series result the Rockies have had on the road so far in 2021. It would also be a great way to carry some much needed momentum back home to Coors Field tomorrow. Charlie Blackmon and CJ Cron get scheduled off days today. Matt Adams will make his first start for the Rockies at first base, while Alan Trejo gets his second big league start at second base.
On the bump for the Diamondbacks is the right handed Merrill Kelly. The Rockies last saw Kelly on April 8th, where they knocked him around for seven runs (six earned) on nine hits and only struck out three times. Kelly’s ERA is a bloated 6.33 through five starts, although he held the Padres to just one run through six innings in his last start before today.

he Rockies drafted Iannetta in 2004 out of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and he ended up spending 10 years with the franchise and its farm system. Interestingly enough, Iannetta was on the Diamondbacks when they played the Rockies in 2017. He did not play in the game, but he would record five at-bats with the team in the National League Division Series against the Dodgers. This means that Iannetta has been on one of the teams’ rosters in four of the Rockies’ five playoff appearances.

Jorge de la Rosa was a two-time Opening Day starter for the Colorado Rockies and spent a decent nine seasons with the team. He has an interesting postseason history with the Rockies, similar to Chris Iannetta above. While de la Rosa was only on the Rockies roster for the 2009 playoff run, he was on the Diamondbacks roster in 2017 and the Cubs roster in 2018. He actually pitched in both games, albeit for only two-thirds of an inning combined, and had a perfect ERA of 0.00 against his former team. For Arizona’s playoff run, he would end up appearing in three games for 2.1 scoreless relief innings.

Unfortunately, neither number one nor two continue the strange Rockies playoff trend. However, Mike Myers appeared in the postseason for Arizona twice in 2004.

Despite that, he is on the list for how insanely good for the Rockies he was. Myers played for the Rockies in 2000 and 2001. You read that right, an insanely good pitcher in pre-humidor Coors Field. During his two years in Colorado, Myers appeared in 151 games and accumulated an impressively low 2.74 ERA during his time, with an even more impressive single-season ERA of 1.99 in 2000. The years in Colorado were the best in his career, which, for a Rockies pitcher, is saying a lot.

It marked his first appearance of the season without issuing a walk. Gonzalez has one career start against the Diamondbacks, in August 2019, with two runs allowed over six innings. Kelly was excellent in his last start in a 5-1 win with one earned run through six innings. But he has struggled historically against the Rockies with a 1-3 record (four starts) and a 7.99 ERA.
