The Arizona Diamondbacks could use a win after losing four of their last five games. The Diamondbacks have allowed 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 14 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost five of their last eight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Paul Goldschmidt leads the Diamondbacks with 154 hits and 112 RBI while David Peralta and Jake Lamb have combined for 264 hits and 147 RBI. Patrick Corbin gets the ball, and he is 13-12 with a 4.16 ERA and 161 strikeouts this season. Corbin is 6-3 with a 5.02 ERA and 74 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 7-3 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series. The Diamondbacks are 7-1 in their last 8 Wednesday games, 38-14 in their last 52 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings and the over is 21-10-3 in the last 34 meetings in Arizona.
Neither of these pitchers have been tough to hit this season, so the over may be worth a look here. Corbin has produced a win in seven of his last 10 starts and has an ERA far better at home than on the road. Marquez has allowed three or more runs in five of his last six starts and has been on the losing side in four of the five times he's pitched to Arizona this season. So while they burned me yesterday, I'm backing the Arizona Diamondbacks yet again.
