Rockies avoid a sweep
The Colorado Rockies avoid a potential series sweep last night with an 11-4 win over the Brewers to snap a four-game losing streak. Colorado enters today’s game 14-17 overall, 9-10 on the road and 16-13 with the under. Jon Gray is getting the start for the Rockies today. He is 2-3 on the season with a 3.65 ERA.
It was a strong start and an even better finish that carried the Rockies to the win on Wednesday. Colorado put up three runs in the first and five over the final two innings to finish with 11 runs on just 10 hits. Nolan Arenado connected on two home runs and drove in four for the game. He has eight homers on the year. Trevor Story also homered, his eighth of the season as well, and finished with three RBI. The Rockies held the Brewers scoreless over the final 4 innings of play.
Brewers staying over .500
Milwaukee has been right around the .500 mark for a little while and they remain that way following a loss to the Rockies last night. The Brewers are now 17-15 on the season, 10-7 at home and 18-13 with the under. Freddy Peralta gets the start for the Brewers this afternoon. He is 1-0 on the season, but carries a 7.13 ERA.
The Brewers pitching wasn’t on point Wednesday, as they walked seven batters and gave up three home runs. Starter Jacob Barnes went just one inning and gave up three runs while the Milwaukee pen allowed eight runs over the final eight innings. At the plate, Mike Moustakas hit his eighth home run of the season while Ben Gamel drove in two runs.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rockies are 11-5 in their last 16 games overall and 11-4 in Gray’s last 15 starts against a winning team.
The Brewers are 9-3 in their last 12 home games against a losing team and 20-9 in their last 29 games following a loss.
The Brewers had to use a lot of arms last night and that could be a problem nearly 12 hours later with Peralta on the mound for them today. He has lasted just 3.1 innings or less in three of his four outings this year, giving up 14 runs combined in those three start. He’s been pretty rough at home so far as well. We know both teams can hit, but key pitching will decide these wins and I trust the Colorado arms today more than I do Milwaukee’s.
MLB Prediction: Colorado Rockies +100
