Chase Field and the Arizona Diamondbacks host the rival Colorado Rockies on Monday.
The Colorado Rockies opportunity at reaching .500 or beyond is hanging by a thread if the team doesn’t finish the season strong. The Rockies took a step in the right direction with a 3-2 victory at San Diego on Sunday in ten innings. Colorado starter Chad Bettis was charged with both runs on four hits over seven frames with three relievers controlling the San Diego offense. The Rockies did their damage on seven hits and a free pass with Charlie Blackmon leaving the yardand knocking in two while Mark Reynolds went solo. Tyler Anderson is scheduled to be on the mound to oppose the Diamondbacks for the second time in 2016. Anderson has been hot over his last three where he has gone 1-1 with a 1.93 ERA.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have had a bad week and have never really caught on in 2016. The Bad week continued in a 5-3 defeat to visiting San Francisco for their 6th consecutive defeat. Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke allowed thee runs through six innings with two relievers giving up a run apiece. Zona pounded out eleven hits with Welington Castillo going deep and driving in two while Brandon Drury knocked in a run. Shelby Miller toes the rubber against the visiting Rockies for the 4th time this season. Miller comes off of a 5-2 loss at the Dodgers with five runs plated on eleven hits in 4.1 frames.
The under is 9-1-1 in Colorado’s last 11 Monday games and the Rockies are 3-9 in their last 12 road games while the over is 9-4 in their last 13 road games. The over is 42-17-2 in Arizona’s last 61 overall and is 42-17-2 in Arizona’s last 61 on grass while going 35-15-1 in their last 51 home games. The over is 39-18-3 in the last 60 meetings and is 17-8-3 in the last 28 meetings in Arizona. I like Anderson and think he is a decent option…
