Rockies trim deficit to a half-game

Colorado now trails the Los Angeles Dodgers by a half-game in the NL West standings following Tuesday night's 10-3 home win over Philadelphia.

Herrera, Kingery have two-hit nights

MLB Betting Trends


The Phillies are 7-22 in their last 29 road games. Philadelphia is 9-23 in its last 32 games on grass.


The Rockies are 28-11 in their last 39 home games. The under is 9-2 in the last 11 Marquez starts overall.


Philadelphia has packed it in. I haven't seen any fight out of the Phils for a month. Marquez is coming into his own as a very good MLB pitcher and should shut down Philadelphia today. The Rockies on the runline, the under due largely to Marquez or Colorado on the moneyline. Take your pick. I'm taking the runline bet.
