The D-backs are fresh off a sweep of the Astros. Can they keep their winning ways going at home against the Rockies?

The Arizona Diamondbacks are trying to get back on the right track. They're coming off a three-game sweep of the woeful Houston Astros and are now just six games out of first place in the National League West. On Monday, they'll host their divisional rivals the Colorado Rockies for a three-game series and perhaps try to gain a little bit more ground.

The Rockies have been struggling all season long and are dead last in the division. They're also just 4-6 over their last 10 games and are a full 3.5 games behind the suddenly-surging San Diego Padres. The D-backs will try to make easy pickings of another last-place team.

TV Schedule & Probable Pitchers

Monday's game will begin at 6:40 p.m. MT and will be televised on FOX Sports Arizona. You can catch the radio broadcast on KTAR 620. Ian Kennedy will get the start for the D-backs and try to get his 7-8 record back up to .500. He'll take on the just-arrived Jonathan Sanchez, who was designated for assignment by the Kansas City Royals and traded to the Rockies. Perhaps the pitcher will find better luck back in the NL West.

Tuesday's first pitch will be at 6:40 p.m. MT and the game will be televised on FOX Sports Arizona. You can catch the radio broadcast on KTAR 620. Joe Saunders takes the ball for Arizona and will enter the game with a 4-6 record and 3.58 ERA. The starter for the Rockies has not yet been announced.

Wednesday's finale will begin at 6:40 p.m MT and will be televised on FOX Sports Arizona. You can catch the radio broadcast on KTAR 620. Trevor Cahill will go for his ninth win against left-hander Jeff Francis, who is 2-2 with a 5.24 ERA.
