Moustakas drives in game-winner
Mike Moustakas drove in Christian Yelich Thursday evening with the game-winning run in the 10th inning to send Milwaukee to a 3-2 victory over the Rockies in Game 1 of the NLDS. Yelich was 2-for-3 in the contest with a 2-run home run in the third inning that scored Lorenzo Cain ahead of him. He also drew two walks. Ryan Braun finished 2-for-5, while Travis Shaw walked twice in five plate appearances. Moustakas was 1-for-4 with the RBI single plus a walk. Manny Pina went 1-for-3 with a walk. Joakim Soria picked up the win in relief as he struck out one in a spotless inning.
Colorado held to four hits
Charlie Blackmon finished 1-for-4 with an RBI single during a 2-run ninth inning yesterday that tied the score at 2-2 before the Rockies lost in the 10th. Nolan Arenado tied the contest with a sacrifice fly. Gerardo Parra was 1-for-2 off the bench and scored a run. Garrett Hampson scored the other run as a pinch runner. Adam Ottavino took the loss in relief as he allowed one earned run on one hit with one strikeout and two walks over 1 2/3 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rockies are 2-9 in their last 11 playoff games. Colorado is 10-3 in its last 13 games overall.
The Brewers have won nine games in a row. Milwaukee is 21-6 in its last 27 games overall.
Milwaukee is going with the better pitcher here, but he is on three days of rest and the argument can be made that Chacin has pitched with luck on his side this season and has overachieved. Anderson is better away from Coors Field and this Rockies team has shown fight when their backs are against the wall. I'm going to go with Colorado to even up the series in this one. If you bet on Cleveland and Colorado to each win and at least one of them prevails, you are making a profit.
