Sponsored by Jonah Bank -- Building a Better Wyoming

The Rockies will add Chi Chi Gonzalez to their roster, and he will start Game 2 on Monday night. He will be facing the Giants for a second time in his career and this year. He made two starters earlier this year for the Rockies, the first of which was a 4-2 loss at San Francisco on June 25. He allowed three runs on six hits and four walks in five innings.

Dereck Rodriguez, who starts Game 2 for the Giants, is the son of Hall of Fame catcher Pudge Rodriquez. He made his Major League debut against the Rockies at Coors Field in a relief role on May 28 last season. He allowed four runs, one earned, in 3 1/3 innings. He also started against the Rockies twice last September -- once at Coors Field and once in San Francisco.

Veterans German Marquez and Jeff Samardzija will start the afternoon game.
