Rockies struggle again

Colorado was shut out on four hits Saturday in a 6-0 loss at St. Louis to drop to 58-72 overall and 25-43 on the road. Daniel Murphy helped pace the Rockies offense as he went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk. Ian Desmond was 1-for-3 with a double, while Tony Wolters also finished 1-for-3. Chi Chi Gonzalez took the loss as he surrendered five earned runs on three hits with two strikeouts and six walks over 4 1/3 innings. Antonio Senzatela draws the start today as he enters with an 8-7 record, 6.29 ERA and 1.72 WHIP with 53 strikeouts over 93 innings pitched.

Hudson throws six scoreless frames

St. Louis secured a 6-0 home win Saturday over Colorado to improve to 70-58 overall and 39-24 at home. Dakota Hudson picked up the win as he allowed two hits with two strikeouts and three walks over six shutout innings. Paul Goldschmidt helped lead the Cardinals offense as he went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk. Harrison Bader was 1-for-3 with a homer, a walk and two RBIs. Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs. Michael Wacha draws the start today for St. Louis as he comes in with a 6-6 record, 5.22 ERA and 1.61 WHIP with 80 strikeouts over 98 1/3 innings of work.

MLB Betting Trends

Colorado

The Rockies are 5-1 in their last six Sunday games. Colorado is 17-36 in its last 53 Sunday games. 

St. Louis

The Cardinals are 9-1 in their last 10 home games. St. Louis is 4-1 in the last five Wacha home starts.

Prediction:He 

I can't trust Senzatela in almost any matchup, whether it's at Coors Field or away. He has a ridiculously low strikeout rate and allows baserunners to reach with a very high frequency. And away from Coors Field, Senzatela has a much less chance of his team's offense exploding for 10-plus runs. While Wacha has had a rocky season too, he can piece it together with more frequency than Senzatela. I'm sticking with the hot team here and going with St. Louis.
