Rockies looking for 10th straight road win

By  | 

Ubaldo Jimenez will be on the mound for the Colorado Rockies when they play the Los Angeles Angels tonight.

Jimenez has won his last three starts while limiting opponents to a .207 batting average.

The Rockies have won 17 of their last 18 and are 19-and-5 since manager Jim Tracy took over for the fired Clint Hurdle on May 29.

Colorado beat the Angels 11-1 last night to boost the Rockies to a season-best four games over .500 after a franchise record-breaking ninth straight win on the road.

The Rockies were last in the NL West when they changed managers but now trail second-place San Francisco by one game and the division-leading Dodgers by nine.
