Rockies hit three homers in win
Colorado's Charlie Blackmon hit a solo home run, his 14th of the season, to help his squad to a 10-8 home win yesterday over the Mets. D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with an RBI. Nolan Arenado was 2-for-4 with his 15th home run, walking once and scoring two runs. Gerardo Parra finished 2-for-4 with a run and two RBIs. Ian Desmond walked three times and scored two runs. Tom Murphy finished 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI. Ryan McMahon hit a pinch-hit 3-run homer in the bottom of the fifth to put the Rockies up 9-8. Bryan Shaw pitched one-third of an inning and picked up the win, while Wade Davis earned his 21st save.
Lugo lit up in thin air
New York starter Seth Lugo gave up six earned runs (three earned) on six hits with five strikeouts and two walks over three innings. He was taken off the hook in the decision, however, as Robert Gsellman gave up three earned runs in an inning of work to take the loss. Brandon Nimmo went 1-for-5 with a walk, a run and an RBI from the leadoff spot. Asdrubal Cabrera was 2-for-5 with a double, a walk, a run and two RBIs. Michael Conforto finished 1-for-4 with a walk, a run and an RBI. Dominic Smith was 3-for-5 with a double, a triple and two runs. Devin Mesoraco ended his night 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, a run and two RBIs.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mets are 5-11 in their last 16 road games. New York is 2-7 in its last nine meetings in Colorado.
The over is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings. Colorado is 2-8 in its last 10 home games.
Matz has been rounding into form as of late, while Freeland is Colorado's most trustworthy pitcher. After three high-scoring games in a row, I think the afternoon will decrease some of the offense as will a pair of decent starting pitchers. Go with the under today.
