Anderson got off to a rocky start this season but he should bounce back today pitching in a pitcher-friendly park against a pitcher-friendly lineup. On the other side, Lucchesi gave up seven hits and three earned runs in his major league debut last week and struck out just one batter. The Rockies have excellent right-handed pop in their lineup, which doesn’t bode well for Lucchesi. The first four batters for Colorado could have big days, including Charlie Blackmon, who has excellent splits against left-handers.
