The Colorado Rockies offense continues to produce, and they’ve won eight of their last 11 games when scoring more than three runs.

The Reds are 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games and 2-13 in Lambs last 15 starts. The Rockies are 9-22 in their last 31 Wednesday games and 5-1 in Chatwoods last 6 starts. The Reds are 8-19 in the last 27 meetings in Colorado.
It's impossible to back the Reds with the way they're playing, as this team can't do much of anything right and is getting absolutely rocked the last week or so. The Rockies have to be the pick here with the Reds stinking up the joint nightly.
