The Colorado Rockies look for consistency after splitting their last 14 games. The Rockies have allowed 22 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Colorado Rockies have an ERA of 5.12 and have lost 10 of their last 13 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Gerardo Parra leads Colorado with 43 hits, Nolan Arenado has 31 RBI and Trevor Story has 11 home runs. Jon Gray takes the hill, and he’s 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. Gray is 0-0 with a 9.39 ERA and five strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 24-8 in their last 32 during game 1 of a series and 4-1 in Harveys last 5 starts with 4 days of rest. The Rockies are 8-2 in their last 10 Friday games and 1-6 in Grays last 7 starts. The Mets are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Colorado and 15-3 in the last 18 meetings overall.
The Mets have simply owned the Rockies over the years with 15 wins in their last 18 tries. The Rockies also struggle to keep teams off the scoreboard. I expect the Mets to get a much needed victory with Harvey on the hill.
