The yoosh, after the jump.

Randy Wolf (5-6, 5.08 ERA) is on the bump for the Crew today.  After a trio of lackluster starts, Wolf was very good against the Angels on Monday, going seven innings while giving up two earned runs and working his way out of trouble in a couple key spots.  Six Rockies have faced Wolf 10 or more times in their (respective) careers:

Todd Helton
43 .265 .419 .441 .860
Brad Hawpe
17 .200 .294 .400 .694
Ryan Spilborghs
14 .273 .429 .818 1.247
Clint Barmes
13 .182 .308 .273 .580
Melvin Mora
13 .083 .154 .333 .487
Chris Ianetta
10 .200 .200 .400 .600

The Rockies counter with Aaron Cook (2-4, 5.15 ERA).  Cook was cuffed around by the Twins in his last start, as he lasted just 3.1 innings while surrendering five earned runs on nine hits and three walks.  The Brewers faced Cook in the season-opening series at Miller Park this April and touched the right-hander for five runs (four earned) on seven hits and a walk in 5.1 innings.  Four current Brewers have faced Cookie more than 10 times:

The Deity

21 .579 .619 1.158 1.777
Prince Fielder
