Streaking Diamondbacks visit Rockies

Jun 23, 2015 - 2:44 PM ( - The Arizona Diamondbacks will visit the Colorado Rockies for three games at Coors Field, starting with Tuesday's series opener.

The Diamondbacks have won seven of their last 10 games and defeated the San Diego Padres twice in a three-game set this past weekend.

Arizona won Sunday's rubber match by a 7-2 score, as A.J. Pollock and Paul Goldschmidt both ripped two-run singles in a seven-run second inning. Jeremy Hellickson struck out seven batters with no walks over six innings, allowing two runs and six hits.

Hellickson was removed from the game after striking out to end the sixth inning.

"Tomorrow he'll come in and get some treatment and we'll see," D-backs manager Chip Hale said of Hellickson making his next start.

The D-backs will hand the ball to Chase Anderson Tuesday and the right-hander has a 3-1 record to go along with a 2.84 earned run average in 13 starts. Anderson has won back-to-back outings and is unbeaten (3-0) since May 3 (9 starts). He tossed six innings of two-run ball in a 3-2 win over the L.A. Angels last Wednesday.

Anderson has made five career starts against the Rockies, going 3-2 with a 4.45 ERA.

Colorado won two of three games versus the Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend and posted its second win in a row with Sunday's 10-4 triumph.

Nolan Arenado homered, Charlie Blackmon drove in four runs and Nick Hundley finished 4-for-4 with three runs scored for the Rockies, who won for just the third time in the last 12 contests. Troy Tulowitzki added three RBI.

"It's a good series win," Hundley said. "We haven't played the last couple of weeks as well as we think we can."

Chris Rusin gave up three runs in six innings for the win.

Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez left Sunday's game with a hand sprain and X-rays revealed no bone damage. Gonzalez has hit safely in 14 of his last 19 games this month, going 20-for-72 (.278) with six homers and 14 RBI.

"Hopefully, it's nothing bad," Gonzalez said. "We have a day off tomorrow, which is nice. We'll see how it is when I come back on Tuesday."

Kyle Kendrick gets the ball for the Rox on Tuesday and the veteran righty is just 2-9 with a 5.95 earned run average in 14 starts. Kendrick is 0-3 in his last four outings and gave up four runs in five innings of an 8-4 setback versus Houston last Wednesday.

Kendrick is 0-3 in five home starts and 1-3 with a 6.34 ERA in 10 games (9 starts) lifetime against the D-backs.

Arizona is 4-1 against the NL West-rival Rockies this season.
