David Hess draws the start today for Baltimore as he comes in with a 1-6 record, 6.75 ERA and 1.41 WHIP with 38 strikeouts over 45 1/3 innings of work.
Arenado drives in five
Colorado lost by a count of 9-6 at home Saturday night against Baltimore to drop to 23-27 overall and 10-12 on the road. Nolan Arenado carried the Rockies offense as he ended the night 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and five RBIs. Chris Iannetta was 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double.

MLB Betting Trends
The Orioles are 28-72 in their last 100 games overall. Baltimore is 1-4 in its last five interleague games.
The Rockies are 6-1 in the last seven Marquez interleague starts. Colorado is 4-1 in the last five Marquez starts on Sundays.
The Rockies fell flat yesterday, but don't expect that today. Hess is one of the most hittable pitchers in baseball, whereas Marquez has learned how to navigate Coors Field and faces a mediocre Orioles lineup. Look for Baltimore to have a lot more trouble scoring today, putting them in a deficit it won't recover from.
