Gavin Floyd tries again for his first win of the year against the Rockies. He's 0-1 in three starts against them for his career, last facing them in 2011. Lyles has one previous start against the Braves.

We all know of Freddie Freeman's ownage of the Rockies, but Chris Johnson and Jason Heyward like Rockies pitching as well: Johnson's hitting .367 (29-79, 1 HR) against them, and Heyward owns a .333 average (28-84, 4 HR). Justin Upton has 19 HR in 87 games against Colorado.

Lyles is a ground ball pitcher and gets most of his whiffs on his slider.
