Another day, another chance to end the losing streak. Might be our best chance of the weekend this evening, looking at the pitching match-ups the rest of the way. Really, as long as it isn't a 1-0 extra-inning loss, I will probably be more relieved than anything else.

Line-up and stuff after the jump.

  1. Kelly Johnson 2B
  2. Justin Upton RF
  3. Stephen Drew SS
  4. Adam LaRoche 1B
  5. Mark Reynolds 3B
  6. Chris Young CF
  7. Gerardo Parra LF
  8. Chris Snyder C
  9. Ian Kennedy RHP

We haven't faced Cook this season, but have historically done pretty well - last year, he was winless in three attempts, with a 7.90 ERA. Snyder's numbers are nothing short of instance, 13-for-22, giving him a line of .591/.654/.818, a 1.472 OPS, with Drew and LaRoche also over 1.000 in 10+ at-bats. Kennedy did face the Rockies in the series in late May, taking the loss as he walked four batters in five inning, though the three earned runs allowed was hardly a disaster. It's time someone stopped the losing streak - but if the Dodgers series is anything to go by, it's the offense who need to improve, a lot more than our starting pitching.
