Jon Gray dominated the Dodgers at Coors Field on July 29 -- one run and three hits in eight innings -- but struggled his last time out against the Giants, giving up nine hits and four runs in four innings. He is 4-0 in his last five starts against the Padres, winning both games in San Diego, where he allowed three runs in 13 innings. Eric Lauer is 0-3 with a 12.41 ERA in four career starts against the Rockies.
Gray best beware of Wil Myers (.412, three home runs) and Hunter Renfro (.556, three home runs). They have had success against him. Trevor Story is hitting .667 against Lauer, and Blackmon has hit .600.
