Hot-hitting Ezequiel Tovar will be looking to extend his 14-game hitting streak as the Colorado Rockies (33-52) host the Detroit Tigers (36-46) at Coors Field on Sunday with the three-game Interleague series in the balance.

The Tigers evened up the series 1-1 after winning 4-2 in 10 innings on Saturday. Alex Lange got the win with two innings of relief. Zach McKinstry was 2 for 5 with a home run and three RBIs in the win. C.J. Cron went 2 for 4 with a double and one run for the Rockies.


Matt Manning (1-1, 4.15 ERA) is slated to start for Detroit. The RHP allowed two runs over 5.2 innings in his last start, an 8-3 home defeat against the Rangers on Tuesday. He yielded three hits while striking out four and walking four in the no-decision.

Righty Connor Seabold (1-4, 5.98 ERA) gets the ball for Colorado. It’s his first appearance of the season against the Tigers. In his last start on Tuesday, Seabold took the loss at home against the Dodgers. He threw five innings and gave up four runs on five hits, striking out three and walking one in the 5-0 defeat.


Over the last five games, Detroit has averaged 4.4 runs a game, a small gain compared to their season average of 3.8. Against righties like Seabold this season, the Tigers have a .655 OPS, second lowest in the league.

Riley Greene has the team’s best on-base percentage against right-handers at .370 over 215 at-bats. Colorado is averaging only 4.4 runs per game in the last five, consistent with their season average.

The Rockies have a .737 OPS against right-handers in 2023. With a .892 OPS over 207 at-bats, Ryan McMahon has been their best hitter against right-handers.


Detroit is 18-25 away from home in 2023, scoring 3.6 runs per game while allowing 4.6 runs. Colorado has gone 20-23 at home this season, averaging 5.0 runs per game while surrendering 6.7.

In the last 10 games at Coors Field between the teams, each club has won five, though Colorado has the scoring advantage with an average final margin of 5.2-5.0.


The Tigers are third in the AL Central, five games behind the division-leading Twins. The Rockies are fifth in the NL West, 17 games behind the Diamondbacks.
