Rockies roll in shutout fashion

David Dahl was 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, three runs and three RBIs. Nolan Arenado finished 2-for-4 with a double and a run. Trevor Story was 3-for-4 with a home run, a triple, three runs and two RBIs. Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a double, a run and two RBIs. Drew Butera hit a pinch-hit 2-run homer in his only at-bat. Ian Desmond finished 2-for-4 with a 2-run home run.
Florimon doubles in loss
Pedro Florimon had the lone extra-base hit for Philadelphia in the defeat as he doubled as a pinch hitter. Dylan Cozens and Scott Kingery both finished 1-for-3. Nick Pivetta took the loss as he surrendered six earned runs on six hits with three strikeouts and three walks over 4 2/3 innings.

MLB Betting Trends
The Phillies are 7-2 in their last nine Thursday games. The over is 7-2-1 in the last 10 Colorado road games.
The Rockies are 29-11 in their last 40 home games. Colorado is 9-4 in Senzatela's last 13 home starts.
Colorado is properly motivated, playing great at home and has taken complete advantage of Philadelphia's massive struggles this month. Name a good reason not to take a shot again at the runline bet that has hit the last three days.
