The Colorado Rockies have faded over the past week and that can’t happen if they expect to be a factor in the American League West. The Rockies have played around .500 baseball in this stretch which won’t be good enough over the long haul. The offense led the way Saturday although Christopher Rusin was dominant on the mound with two runs plated on seven hits through seven innings to get the win with Rafael Betancourt giving up three runs in the 9th. The Rockies pounded out 17 hits with Wilin Rosario going deep twice to drive in three and score three times. Carlos Gomez went deep and kocked in three while Nolan Arenado drove in two more. The Rockies are slated to give the ball to Kyle Kendrick who faces the Marlins for the first time in 2015. Kendrick was hammered 11-4 by the Dodgers with six runs plated (five earned) on ten hits and a pair of BB over 5.1 innings.
Miami are 2-8 in their last 10 Sunday games. The over is 7-3 in Colorado’s last 10 home games while the Rockies are 9-4 in their last 13 overall and 9-4 in their last 13 games on grass. The under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Colorado and the over is 5-2-2 in the last 9 meetings. You can’t be totally confident here with Kendrick going but he has a good history versus Miami…
