The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Rockies have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six straight games. The Rockies have split their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. DJ LeMahieu leads Colorado with 79 hits and 32 RBI while Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 84 RBI. The Colorado Rockies have split their last eight home games. Kyle Kendrick takes the hill, and he’s 2-9 with a 5.95 ERA and 41 strikeouts this season. Kendrick is 1-3 with a 6.34 ERA and 27 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 5-11 in their last 16 games following an off day and 2-9 in Andersons last 11 road starts. The Rockies are 17-41 in their last 58 during game 1 of a series and 0-4 in Kendricks last 4 starts. The Diamondbacks are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Rockies simply can't get their pitching staff and batting order on the same page, as they find ways to lose games in the worst ways. I like the Diamondbacks to get the job done here, as they've been more consistent.
