Thursday by Comparison: Gray Brightens Up Rockies Late-Season Push

With Jon Gray's effort on Wednesday night, the Rockies have now won his last nine starts, which equals a franchise record set by Ubaldo Jimenez in 2010. More impressive, though, is that Gray, in his seven starts since being recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque, is 3-0 with a 2.59 ERA with the Rockies winning the seven games.
