The Colorado Rockies will look to salvage a win and avoid the sweep after dropping game two on Saturday. Mark Reynolds drove in the lone Rockies RBI, despite going 0 for 3 at the dish. DJ LeMahieu went 1 for 3 with a triple while Gerardo Parra, Jonathan Lucroy and Mike Tauchman added base hits in the loss, as Colorado racked up just four hits as a team in defeat. Jon Gray took the loss, falling to 6-4 this season after giving up three runs on five hits while walking thre and striking out six over five innings of work. German Marquez will get the nod in game three and is 10-5 with a 4.18 ERA and 125 strikeouts this season. In his career, Marquez is 0-1 with a 3.16 ERA and 21 strikeouts against Arizona.
Arizona is 10-1 in their last 11 games overall and 9-3 in Godley’s last 12 starts against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 division matchups. Colorado is 9-0 in Marquez’s last 9 home starts and 1-5 in their last 6 home games while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games against a right-handed starter. Arizona is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.
Godley’s play as of late hasn’t inspired much confidence, and Marquez has been a straight up beast at home. But the fact of the matter is, the D-Backs are getting hot at just the right time and are getting it done down the stretch. The Rockies just aren’t cutting it right now and are running the risk of falling out of the wild-card spot and I think that Colorado is pushed one step closer to the brink as the D-Backs complete the sweep on Sunday and push their winning streak to double digits.
