After last night’s shutout victory against the Cardinals, the D-backs look to continue the good vibes at home when the Rockies visit Chase Field.

Last night’s win was just the fifth by the Diamondbacks at home this season, and it’s no secret that the Snakes are going to have to play better in Phoenix to contend for a National League West division crown.

Chase Field has the highest park factor in the majors this season, and D-backs pitchers have complied a 6.77 ERA in 121.0 innings pitched, compared with a 2.57 ERA in 94.2 innings on the road.

Rubby De La Rosa has proved over his last two starts that great outings can be thrown at Chase Field (0.96 ERA in that span), and Robbie Ray, Zach Greinke, and Shelby Miller can keep it going!
