The Rockies won Tuesday's game 6-0 as Tyler Anderson threw seven shutout innings with five strikeouts to earn the win. Charlie Blackmon was 1-for-2 with three walks and a run. Carlos Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with a double and a run. Nolan Arenado finished 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs and two RBIs. Mark Reynods was 2-for-3 with a walk and a run. Trevor Story added a three-run home run. Jose Urena took the loss for the Marlins as he allowed six runs in five innings.
Gray has been on a great run the last couple months and he can bring the Rockies one step closer to clinching the second NL Wild Card spot with another solid performance. Conley should be hit hard at Coors Field as he is one of the weaker starting pitchers in baseball. Expect the Rockies to win the series with a win.
