After a season-opening series at Miami, in which the Rockies split four games, they open a three-game series against the Rays at Tropicana Dome in St. Petersburg, Fla., Monday night. The Rays are sitting alone atop the AL East after taking three out of four in a season-opening series against the Astros.
The Rockies are 9-9 all-time against the Rays. They were swept in a three-game sereis at the Tropicana Dome in 2004, the only time the two teams have played in St. Petersburg. The Rockies lost two out of three to the Rays at Coors Field in 2013 and 2016, the last two times the teams have met.
