The Colorado Rockies and Coors Field host the Arizona Diamondbacks in NL West action Monday.
The Arizona Diamondbacks hadn’t been playing well but a trip to Turner Field to face the Braves turned their frowns upside down with a three game sweep of Atlanta following a 5-3, eleven inning victory on Sunday. Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin tossed seven scoreless frames before leaving with a 3-0 lead before Andrew Chafie came on and promptly surrendered three hits including a three run homer. The Snakes attack consisted of nine hits and a walk with Chris Hermann delivering a solo homer and a walk off two run jack. The Arizona Diamondbacks turn to Rubby De La Rosa for the series opening start at Coors Field. De La Rosa is coming off of a 4-3 loss at Miami where he was charged with all four runs scored on eight hits in 5.2 frames.

I have said many times that the Colorado Rockies might not win the National League West but they are tougher then what most people credit them for. The Rockies proved that point when unheralded Eddie Butler dominated a dangerous San Francisco lineup on the road by a 2-0 count on Sunday. Butler threw a four hit shutout through six innings while four relievers held the Giants off the scoreboard. Colorado produced nine hits and walked once with Nolan Arenado and Gerardo Parra recording RBI’s while Trevor Story and Carlos Gonzalez scored. A red hot Tyler Chatwood gets Monday’s start versus the visiting Diamondbacks. Chatwood has logged consecutive shutouts with eight hits and four BB allowed over 14.1 innings.
Arizona are 2-6 in their last 8 overall and are 2-6 in their last 8 games on grass while going 11-4 in their last 15 Monday games. The over is 6-2 in Colorado’s last 8 home games and Colorado are 12-25 in their last 37 Monday games. I’m going with the hot hurler in Chatwood with the dangerous offense behind him….
