Over the weekend, Cincinnati will look to put a stop to their recent slide. The team enters this series with Colorado on a six-game losing streak. Unfortunately, things don't look to get much easier for the Reds as the Rockies bring one of baseball's best records to Great American Ball Park.
Last Season & What's Ahead
The Rockies finished the 2016 season with a 75-87 record. That was good enough for third place in the NL West. Colorado comes into this weekend series with the Reds with the second-best record in the National League (26-16). They currently lead the NL West by two games over the Dodgers and Diamondbacks.
