Are the Rockies poised for another late season run in the NL West? Arizona has lost four straight and the Dodgers seven straight while the Rockies continue to creep up in the standings. The Rockies have gotten to within six games due to a 9-3 run over their last 12 games. Aaron Cook has already won 15 games for the sub-.500 Rockies, and has been their best pitcher on the season. Cook has owned the Padres. Cook has pitched five shut-out innings this season, and has a career 10-4 mark with a nifty 2.73 ERA over his career against the Padres. Dirk Hayhurst has been used mostly as a reliever, and in his only start allowed three runs in just four innings. The Rockies are on the move, with their best pitcher, against a rookie that has seen most of his work out of the pen. We like the Rockies on the runline here.
