MILWAUKEE- After a big loss Monday night to the Los Angeles Dodgers, Tuesday night’s wildcard game victory brought a lot of hope to Colorado Rockies fans.

On Thursday, the Rockies will go up against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park in Wisconsin.

First pitch is scheduled for 3:07 p.m Mountain Time.

Right-hander Antonio Senzatela will be starting on the mound for the Rockies, and for the Brewers, Wade Miley is expected to start.

Senzatela, said in a press conference this week, ‘I feel ready, just focused on the game, and just like any other game, just prepare for that game.’

Milwaukee won the Central after beating the Chicago Cubs in a tiebreaker game Monday.

‘This is an opportunity where you get to play on a stage, a bigger stage,’ said Brewers Manager Craig Counsell, ‘and in front of an incredible atmosphere. There’s more of a trick like we just talked about of not trying too hard, and kind of staying into your process than being content.’

Rockies will play in Milwaukee again on Friday, returning to Coors Field on Sunday.

Tickets for Sunday’s game in Denver start at $105.

If there’s a game four, the Rockies will get the home field advantage again on Monday.

This will be the 8th match-up for the teams this year during the regular season the Brewers won 5 games against the Rockies.

“We’ll adhere to rule number one, which is be ready for anything,’ said Bud Black, manager of the Rockies.
