The Colorado Rockies face the Texas Rangers on Tuesday, April 12th, 2022 at Globe Life Field for game two of a two-game series. 

The Colorado Rockies defeated the Texas Rangers by the final score of 6-4 on Monday in extra innings. The Rangers led 3-1 in the middle innings after an Adolis Garcia two-RBI single with the bases loaded, but the Rockies clawed their way back and tied it up at 3-3 in the 8th. The Rockies then took the lead in the top of the 9th off of a CJ Cron solo shot, 4-3. The Rangers were down to their last out but Willie Calhoun down 0-1 count smashed a no-doubter to the right-field seats to tie the game at 4-4 and force extra innings. In extras, the Rockies found two runs in the top of the 10th and that was all she wrote. The Rockies now have a winning record of 1-0 on the road this year, something Colorado was not used to in 2021. Colorado is 3-1 overall this season and the Rangers fall to 1-3. 

The Colorado Rockies are projected to send right-hander Chad Kuhl to the mound to face the Rangers. Kuhl was a member of the Pirates in 2021 in which he went 5-7 with a 4.82 ERA in 80.1 innings for Pittsburgh. Kuhl started in 14 games last year for the Pirates but ended the season in more of a bullpen role for a Pirates team that needed any strong relief arms it could get.

The Texas Rangers are set to send the veteran southpaw Martin Perez to the bump to take on the Rockies here. Perez is back on the Rangers where he started his career. After brief stints with the Twins and Red Sox, Perez will get his first start with the Rangers since 2018. In 2021 with Boston, Perez went 7-8 with a 4.74 ERA and a 4.82 FIP as well. 

I like the over here, as I completely understand why the total is set so high. This starting pitching matchup sets up for some offense, and the Rockies proved on Monday that they can get it done with the sticks even away from Coors Field.
