The Milwaukee Brewers and the Colorado Rockies will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at Coors Field.

Matt Garza will be the starting pitcher for the Brewers on this day. Right hander Garza is 6-6 this season with a 4.38 ERA.

The Rockies will counter Garza with German Marquez. Right hander Marquez has a 4.13 ERA to go along with a 9-5 record this season.

Garza picked up the victory despite allowing four runs (three earned), five hits and five walks while striking out two in 5 1/3 innings of a 7-4 win over Cincinnati on Sunday. It was an improvement for the 33-year-old Californian, who yielded a career high-tying four homers among eight runs and eight hits in an 11-4 loss at Minnesota on Aug. 8. NL MVP candidate Charlie Blackmon is 3-for-13 with four RBIs and four strikeouts versus Garza, who is 2-5 with a 6.10 ERA in seven starts versus Colorado – 0-3, 8.82 in 16 1/3 innings at Coors Field.

Marquez permitted five runs and seven hits while walking one and striking out four over 4 1/3 innings of a 5-3 loss in Miami on Sunday. The 22-year-old Venezuelan, who has allowed 110 hits and recorded 107 strikeouts in 113 1/3 innings this season, is 0-1 with a 4.41 ERA in three August starts after going 4-0 with a 3.51 mark in five July turns. Marquez made three starts among his six appearances in 2016, earning a no-decision in one of them after allowing two runs and six hits in six innings of Colorado’s 6-4 loss to Milwaukee in the final game of the regular season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rockies listed as 160-moneyline favorites versus the Brewers, while the game’s total is sitting at 12.

The Milwaukee Brewers are right on the heels of the first-place Chicago Cubs in the National League Central, but will explore another avenue to the postseason when they visit the Colorado Rockies for a three-game series beginning Friday. Milwaukee trails Chicago by one game in the Central as it tries to carve into a 4 1/2-game deficit behind Colorado in the NL wild card race.

The Brewers finished a seven-game homestand with four straight victories and feel good about themselves as they embark on a nine-game road trip to Denver, San Francisco and Los Angeles. “The momentum is really good right now,” Milwaukee outfielder Keon Broxton told reporters after the Brewers’ 7-6 victory over Pittsburgh on Wednesday. “The vibe in the clubhouse is awesome. I think everyone is getting back to playing baseball the way we knew how, and that’s really fun for us, the fans, everyone. It’s really relaxed in here right now, and we just have to continue on.” The Rockies – tied for first with Arizona in the wild card standings – are 3-7 in their last 10 games and could be without major league RBI leader Nolan Arenado, who left Thursday’s 10-4 loss to Atlanta after taking a ground ball off his left hand. Milwaukee’s Matt Garza, who is winless in three starts at Coors Field, is 2-2 with a 5.55 ERA in five outings since the All-Star break and opposes German Marquez, who will try to become the third Colorado rookie pitcher to win 10 games this season.

The Rockies were a 10-4 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Braves. That made winners of bettors who got Atlanta at 160 on the moneyline, while the total score (14) was good news for OVER bettors.

Last time out for Milwaukee, they were a 7-6 winner as they battled the Pirates on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Brewers at -123 were rewarded, while the 13 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
