The fans at Coors Field will be treated to a game between the Chicago Cubs and the Colorado Rockies when they take their seats on Tuesday.

The Cubs will give the ball to starter Jake Arrieta in this one. Right hander Arrieta is 4-1 this season with a 4.63 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Antonio Senzatela who starts for the Rockies. Right hander Senzatela is 4-1 with a 2.84 ERA so far this season.

Arrieta allowed three runs over six innings to beat Philadelphia on Wednesday, snapping a streak of three outings without a quality start. The 31-year-old has given up five runs in each of his last two road starts but owns a 3-1 record away from home this season. Arrieta is 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA in three career turns against the Rockies, who roughed him up for nine runs and 13 hits over five frames in his only previous outing at Coors Field.

Senzatela won National League Rookie of the Month honors in April and picked up where he left off in his first start this month. The 22-year-old Venezuelan limited San Diego to three runs – two earned – over six innings to record the win Wednesday after suffering his first career loss in his previous start. Senzatela, who pounds the strike zone but doesn’t allow a lot of solid contact, is 2-1 with a 3.15 ERA in three home starts.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 129-moneyline favorites versus the Rockies, while the game’s total is sitting at 10½.

The Chicago Cubs received an unexpected – but much-needed – day off, but now they’ll play at least 18 innings for the second time in three days. After the series opener was rained out, the visiting Cubs begin a three-game set against the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday with a split doubleheader.

The Cubs needed the extra day after losing an 18-inning marathon to the New York Yankees on Sunday night that completed a three-game sweep. The Rockies (20-12) are off to the second-best start in franchise history through 32 games, one game behind the mark set in 1997. Colorado began its 10-game homestand by winning two of three against Arizona for its third consecutive series win. The Rockies captured four of six meetings with the Cubs last season, and slugger Carlos Gonzalez is hitting .333 with 13 homers and 29 RBIs in 41 career games against Chicago.
