The Detroit Tigers and the Colorado Rockies will both be gunning for a victory on Monday when they meet at Coors Field in an interleague contest.

The Tigers will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Jordan Zimmermann in this game. Zimmermann has a 7-11 record and a 6.11 ERA this season.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Antonio Senzatela who starts for the Rockies. Right hander Senzatela is 10-4 with a 4.52 ERA so far this season.

Zimmermann became the first Tiger in 82 years to give up seven runs in three straight outings in a loss to the New York Yankees on Wednesday, surrendering nine hits and failing to strike out a batter in five innings. The two-time All-Star joined Tommy Bridges and Schoolboy Rowe (1935) as owners of the dubious honor and has allowed 27 hits across 13 2/3 frames over that span. Zimmermann has had the Rockies’ number in 10 career starts against them, however, going 6-0 with a 2.48 ERA.

Senzatela, who has worked primarily out of the bullpen since the end of June, settled for a no-decision Wednesday in Kansas City after yielding two runs over five innings. The 22-year-old Venezuelan has yet to record a decision in August but has posted a 2.84 ERA this month after struggling in June (8.10) and July (6.00). Senzatela has given up 13 of his 18 homers in Colorado this season, although he will put his 8-2 home record on the line as he faces Detroit for the first time.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rockies listed as 167-moneyline favorites versus the Tigers, while the game’s total is sitting at 12½.

Although the Colorado Rockies probably wouldn’t mind forgetting most of August, they may be ending the month the same positive way they started it. After winning three of their final four during a six-game road trip, the Rockies return home Monday to begin a three-game interleague series against the fading Detroit Tigers.

Colorado, which won four of its first five in August before dropping 11 of its next 15, improved to 11-13 this month following Sunday’s 3-0 victory in the rubber match of its three-game weekend set in Atlanta. The surge comes at a good time for the Rockies, who maintained their 3 1/2-game lead over Milwaukee for the second wild card in the National League and remained 1 1/2 behind Arizona for the top spot. Detroit won four straight to begin the month but has lost 16 of 21 since and finds itself only four games ahead of the American League-worst Chicago White Sox. The Tigers dropped their sixth consecutive series over the weekend and were dealt another blow when Victor Martinez was forced to go on the disabled list with an irregular heartbeat for the second time this season prior to Sunday’s 7-1 loss to the White Sox.

Last time out for Colorado, they were a 3-0 winner as they battled the Braves on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Rockies at -127 were rewarded, while the 3 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Detroit lost its last outing, a 7-1 result against the White Sox on August 27. Bettors who backed the White Sox at -102 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (8) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
