MLB FRIDAY PREVIEWS

July 27, 2012
INDIANA SPORTS PAGE



The Cincinnati Reds attempt to win their eighth consecutive game when they open a three-game road series against the Colorado Rockies on Friday. Cincinnati is 11-2 since the All-Star break and its season-long winning streak reached seven games Wednesday when it scored three ninth-inning runs to finish off a sweep of the Houston Astros. The Rockies have the second-worst record in baseball and are 23 games below .500. Only the Astros have a worse mark.

Colorado has lost eight of 11 games despite salvaging the finale of a three-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday. The Rockies are leaning toward activating first baseman Todd Helton (hip) prior to Friday’s game. Helton, who is batting just .235, hasn’t played since July 8. Cincinnati outfielder Drew Stubbs enters the series on a tear after going 7-for-15 against the Astros and recording go-ahead hits in the ninth inning of each of the final two games. Stubbs hit a two-run homer on Tuesday and a two-run double the following night.
