Coming off of a loss in which the Mets lost by more than a touchdown, the club will look to bounce back behind a strong performance from Dillon Gee and the return of Ike Davis to the lineup. 
The last time Ike Davis played in Colorado would wind up being the last time he played in 2011. After a collision with David Wright, Ike Davis rolled his ankle and experienced complications that weren't healed until after the season concluded. Fully healthy now, he'll look to rebound from the tough start he has had on the year in one of the friendliest hitters environments in the major leagues.
Davis will be looking to support Dillon Gee (1-2, 5.21 ERA), who will be making his debut at Coors Field tonight. Gee has had an inconsistent season thus far but showed encouraging signs during his second outing against the Atlanta Braves when he was able to shut the Braves down over 7 innings, allowing only 1 run. Gee's last start against the San Francisco Giants was marred by 2 home runs over 6 2/3 innings, allowing 7 runs in total. 
Opposing Gee is the the 28-year old Guillermo Moscoso, who will be making his first start of the year. Moscosco was acquired by the Colorado Rockies in the trade that sent Seth Smith to the Oakland Athletics over the offseason. Moscoso performed well for the A's in 21 starts in 2 relief appearances, boasting a 3.38 ERA, but has a low strikeout rate (5.2/9).
