Arenado, Senzatela lead way
Colorado cruised to an 8-1 victory Tuesday night at Arizona to improve to 38-34 overall and 16-19 on the road. Nolan Arenado paced the Rockies offense as he went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, a walk, two runs and three RBIs. Charlie Blackmon finished 3-for-5 with a double and two runs. Ryan McMahon was 1-for-4 with a double, a run and two RBIs. Antonio Senzatela picked up the win as he allowed one earned run on seven hits with five strikeouts and four walks over 6 2/3 innings. Jon Gray starts tonight for Colorado as he comes in with a 6-5 record, 4.38 ERA and 1.38 WHIP with 93 strikeouts over 84 1/3 innings.
Marte has three hits in loss
Arizona fell by a count of 8-1 at home Tuesday night against Colorado to drop to 38-36 overall and 14-17 at home. Ketel Marte helped lead the Diamondbacks offense as he went 3-for-4. David Peralta was 1-for-2 with two walks and an RBI. Jarrod Dyson went 1-for-5 and scored a run. Merrill Kelly suffered the loss as he surrendered six earned runs on eight hits with five strikeouts and no walks over six innings. Zack Greinke will start tonight for the D-Backs as he comes in with an 8-2 record, 2.65 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with 85 strikeouts over 95 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rockies are 8-2 in their last 10 games versus the NL West. Colorado is 4-1 in the last five Gray starts.
The Diamondbacks are 7-2 in their last nine Wednesday games. Arizona is 35-16 in the last 51 Greinke home starts.
Greinke has been in great form all season and typically pitches his best at home. While Gray occasionally suffers from bad luck and Coors Field, I still don't see him quite matching up with Greinke today. Expect the Diamondbacks offense to do enough to support their ace here.
