LeMahieu hits walk-off homer

D.J. LeMahieu hit a walk-off 2-run home run last night to send the Rockies to a 4-3 victory over the Diamondbacks. He finished the contest 3-fpr-5 with the home run, two runs and two RBIs. Nolan Arenado was 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles and two RBIs. Matt Holliday and David Dahl both went 1-for-3 plus a walk. Wade Davis picked up the win in relief as he struck out two in a perfect inning of work.

Escobar, Avila homer in defeat

Eduardo Escobar was 1-for-4 with a 2-run homer in yesterday's loss for Arizona. Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-4 with a double and a run. Alex Avila ended the contest 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk. Yoshihisa Hirano took the loss in relief as he allowed two earned runs on two hits in one-third of an inning.

Clay Buchholz (7-2, 2.01 ERA) will start today for the D-backs, while the Rockies will counter with Kyle Freeland (14-7, 2.91). 

MLB Betting Trends

Arizona

The under is 12-3-1 in the last 16 Diamondbacks road games. Arizona is 2-6 in the last eight meetings. 

Colorado

The under is 21-7-1 in the last 29 Rockeis home games. The under is 6-2 in the last eight Colorado games overall.

Prediction:

Freeland has been consistent all season and has seemingly perfected how to pitch at Coors Field, limiting the opposition's scoring output basically every time out. While Buchholz has had a very strong season, regression is expected and where better than the thin air of Denver for that to happen? I like Colorado to get the victory in this one.
