Goldschmidt continues torrid stretch

Jake Lamb contributed a solo home run, while David Peralta was 3-for-5 with a solo home run. Ketel Marte added a double and scored two runs. Zack Greinke allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits with five strikeouts and two walks over 5 2/3 innings to pick up the win.

Blackmon, Story both homer

Colorado outfielder Charlie Blackmon hit a solo home run Friday night, while shortstop Trevor Story finished 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs. D.J. LeMahieu contributed two hits including a double at the top of the lineup. Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with a double and a run. German Marquez allowed five earned runs on six hits over four innings, striking out four and walking one.

MLB Betting Trends

Arizona

The Diamondbacks are 2-12 in their last 14 road games. Arizona is 8-19 in its last 27 games overall.

Colorado

The over is 8-0-2 in the last 10 Rockies games. The under is 9-3 in the last 12 Colorado games on Saturday.

Prediction:

Coors Field can turn any game into a shootout, but Bettis knows this stadium and how to pitch in it better than Koch. The Rockies don't want to fall any further out of first, so I think they come out with fire and take care of business today.
