The Colorado Rockies are surging after an impressive homestand.
Carrying that success into Chase Field may be a problem.
The Rockies will try to snap a five-game road losing streak to the Arizona Diamondbacks as the NL West rivals open a three-game series Monday night.
Colorado (23-30) completed a 6-1 homestand with Sunday's 3-2 win over major league-leading Los Angeles. That's a very encouraging stretch for a team that headed into that run at Coors Field with 17 losses in 22 games.

Continuing that success away from Denver may be a tough task since the Rockies are 8-15 on the road this season, and 4-14 in their last 18 in Arizona (25-29). They've been outscored 37-10 during a five-game losing streak at Chase Field.
