The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies face off on Friday at Chase Field for game two of their MLB series.
The Arizona Diamondbacks didn’t get started until late on Thursday but in the end they pummeled the Rockies. A.J Pollock hit a home run and Paul Goldschmidt and Aaron Hill had two hits each as the Diamondbacks scored eight runs on 10 hits. Starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson allowed three hits and a run while striking out six over 7.0 innings to get the win and go to 6-5 for the season. For Friday’s game the Diamondbacks start Chase Anderson who has allowed 87 hits and 37 earned runs while striking out 55 over 91 innings for a 4-2 record and a 3.66 ERA.

The Colorado Rockies never got the offense going on Thursday as they lost to the Rockies in Colorado. Troy Tulowitzki, Nolan Arenado, and Nick Hundley each had hits as the Rockies scored one run on three hits. Starting pitcher Christopher Rusin allowed six hits and three runs, one earned, while striking out six over 6.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 3-3 for the season. For Friday’s game the Rockies start Kyle Kendrick who has allowed 110 hits and 65 earned runs while striking out 48 over 96.1 innings for a 3-10 record and a 6.07 ERA.
Arizona is 5-0 as a home favorite, 1-4 in game two of a series, and 4-1 in Anderson’s last five starts. Colorado is 7-15 in game two of a series, 2-7 in Friday games, and 2-10 in Kendrick’s last 12 starts. Colorado is 2-6 in the last eight meetings of these two.
With these two pitchers the runs should come early and often and I like the over in this spot. I also have a play on the winning side and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
