Rockies fall in another shootout
Colorado blew a big early lead Sunday afternoon by a count 14-13 at home against San Diego as the two teams set the modern record for most combined runs in a four-game series with 92. Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-6 with a home run and three RBIs to help lead the Rockies offense. Trevor Story was 2-for-6 with a solo home run and a double. Ian Desmond finished 3-for-5 with two doubles, two runs and an RBI. Wade Davis suffered the loss as he allowed four earned runs on two hits with no strikeouts and two walks over two-thirds of an inning. Antonio Senzatela draws the start tonight for the Rockies as he enters with a 5-5 record, 5.48 ERA and 1.63 WHIP with 35 strikeouts over 64 innings pitched.
D-Backs obliterated by Nats
Arizona lost by a final of 15-5 score Sunday afternoon at Washington to drop to 38-35 overall and 24-19 at home. Ketel Marte ended the contest as he went 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk and three runs scored. Ildemaro Vargas went 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI. Eduardo Escobar finished 1-for-4 with an RBI. Archie Bradley suffered the loss as he gave up four earned runs on five hits over 1 1/3 innings, striking out two and walking two. Merrill Kelly gets the start tonight as he comes in with a 7-6 record, 3.76 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with 63 strikeouts over 82 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rockies are 4-1 in their last five Tuesday games. Colorado is 6-2 in the last eight Senzatela starts.
The D-Backs are 8-3 in their last 11 games overall. Arizona is 0-5 in the last five meetings.
Kelly has been awesome as of late and with that confidence building, I think he slows down a red-hot Rockies offense that will have to deal with leaving Coors Field. Senzatela is very hittable and Arizona has a number of power hitters who can do damage. Go with Arizona here.
