Lineup Card: Rockies vs D-Backs

The Diamondbacks return home after an 0-9 road trip through Colorado, San Francisco and Los Angeles.  They have not scored a single run since the second inning of their game in LA on Monday.  That's a streak of 31 innings after losing consecutive 1-0 decision in 10 and 14 innings respectively.

Needless to say, they are struggling.

It's also needless to say they won't go the rest of the season without scoring a run or winning a game. Before this stretch, Arizona had the highest scoring offense in the NL.  Once they get the bats going again, those runs will pour in again.  And strangely, their pitching hasn't been a problem the last week.

What I'm saying is they could get hot quickly.

The Rockies just have to be careful they don't get caught sleepwalking through a winnable series like we saw in Chicago and Houston.  Take care of business.  Let the next team be the one Arizona gets well against.
