Last week was not a good one for the Colorado Rockies. In week five, the Rockies will return home to Coors Field for more divisional games against the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Dodgers. To be successful, they’ll need to have improved performances from the starting pitching. Hopefully that’s something we’ll see from the club so they can return to their winning ways from early in the season.
