Stats Report: D-Backs Switch Ray Into Start Thursday Finale in Place of Godley

The Diamondbacks changed their rotation for the Rockies series on Monday. Robbie Ray will start in the Thursday finale in place of Zack Godley, who was used in relief in the 15-inning loss to the Padres on Sunday. Ray was pushed back to Friday's game in Atlanta.

The Diamondbacks arrive in a funk. They have lost seven of their last 10 games, and have seen a 3 1/2 game lead over the Dodgers cut to a half game. The two teams are tied for first place in the division, and the fourth-place Rockies have climbed to within 3 1/2 games of the top.

Arizona is one team that isn't afraid of visiting Coors Field. They swept the Rockies in a three-game series earlier this year, and have won their last eight games at Coors Field.
