The Colorado Rockies will be going for the series win when they take on the Chicago Cubs in the final game of their three-game series on Wednesday night. The game will be played at Coors Field and it is scheduled to begin at 3:10 PM. ET.

Cole Hamels, 5-2 with a 3.24 ERA, will get the start for the Cubs. The Rockies will give the ball to Antonio Senzatela, who is 5-4 with a 4.95 ERA.

Cubs Going For Fourth Win In Five Games

The Cubs took care of business at home last week, winning five of their six contests. However, they have struggled on the road and have lost their last four road games. They will try to snap their losing streak and pick up their fourth win in their last five games when they face the Rockies on Wednesday.
