The Colorado Rockies look to keep rolling after winning 10 of their last 14 games. The Rockies have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Colorado Rockies offense continues to produce, and they’ve won 10 of their last 11 games when scoring more than three runs. Carlos Gonzalez leads Colorado with 133 hits, DJ LeMahieu has 40 RBI and Charlie Blackmon has 13 home runs. Jon Gray takes the hill, and he’s 8-4 with a 3.77 ERA and 120 strikeouts this season. This will be Gray’s second career game against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 6-1 in their last 7 Sunday games and 2-5 in Conleys last 7 road starts. The Rockies are 1-4 in their last 5 Sunday games and 5-2 in Grays last 7 home starts. The Marlins are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
The Marlins are the better team here and Conley has established himself as a legit No. 2 pitcher this season. Gray has been solid this season as well, especially as of late, but the fish have hit him well in limited at bats. I'm siding with Miami and the plus money.
