Series Preview 6/6-6/7: Indians vs. Rockies


The Cleveland Indians (29-26) and Colorado Rockies (36-23) open a two-game set at Coors Field, their first Interleague meeting since 2014. Both clubs have won five of their last 10 contests dating back to May 26, but remain the likely favorites to win each of their divisions. While Corey Kluber is back for the Tribe alongside Carlos Carrasco, the Rockies are still looking to solidify the front end of their starting rotation with Jon Gray and Tyler Anderson recovering from injuries on the disabled list. Cleveland has won two of its eight contests when playing at the high altitude stadium.
