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

Right hander German Marquez will take the mound for the Rockies to start this game. Marquez is 4-3 this season with a 4.53 ERA.

It’ll be Mike Montgomery toeing the rubber for the Cubs in this contest. Left hander Montgomery is 0-3 with a 2.21 ERA so far this season.

Marquez dominated the Cubs on May 10 in Colorado, striking out eight and allowed three hits over eight scoreless innings. That was the first of four straight wins for the 22-year-old, but he faltered Friday at San Diego and was tagged for six runs and eight hits over five innings in his first loss since May 5. Marquez did strike out a career-high nine Padres, but he also surrendered two home runs for the second straight start.

Montgomery has been solid out of the bullpen as a long reliever, most recently throwing 3 1/3 scoreless frames to earn his second save Monday against Miami. The 27-year-old had a streak of eight straight scoreless outings spanning 17 innings earlier this season. Montgomery’s only appearance against the Rockies was a start last season in which he allowed one run and one hit over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 140-moneyline favorites versus the Rockies, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

The Colorado Rockies are beginning to have the look of a legitimate World Series contender, as they boast the second-best record in the National League and seem to have the defending World Series champs’ number. The Rockies look to extend their winning streak to six games and continue their strong performance against the Chicago Cubs when the teams continue a four-game series Friday at Wrigley Field.

The Rockies beat the Cubs 4-1 in Thursday’s opener, giving Colorado three wins in four meetings this season and seven of 10 against the Cubs since the beginning of the 2016 campaign. While the Rockies have won five straight and lead the NL West by two games, the Cubs are just one game over .500, though they’re only a game behind Milwaukee for the NL Central lead. The biggest difference for Chicago has been its starting pitchers, who had posted a 2.34 ERA through 59 games last season compared with a 4.65 mark this year, and the rotation took another hit with right-hander Kyle Hendricks (finger) landing on the disabled list Wednesday. Left-hander Mike Montgomery is set to make his first start of the season for the Cubs – he is 5-7 with a 4.23 ERA in 23 career starts.

In their last action, Chicago was a 4-1 loser on the road against the Rockies. Bettors on Colorado at 172 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
