The Arizona Diamondbacks look for another victory after winning 11 of their last 15 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 14 runs in this series and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won 10 of their last 13 games when scoring more than three runs. Paul Goldschmidt leads the Diamondbacks with 156 hits and 112 RBI while David Peralta and Jake Lamb have combined for 268 hits and 150 RBI. Zack Godley gets the ball, and he is 7-7 with a 3.18 ERA and 145 strikeouts this season. Godley is 2-0 with a 4.02 ERA and 16 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. National League West, 4-0 in Bettis' last 4 Thursday starts and 19-7 in Bettis' last 26 starts. The Diamondbacks are 6-1 in their last 7 Thursday games, 2-4 in their last 6 vs. National League West and 2-4 in their last 6 home games. The Rockies are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings and the under is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings.
Godley has allowed three or less runs in seven of his last nine starts overall and is allowing a .181 batting average at home this season. Bettis has been hit hard in most of his 34.1 innings this season, which includes allowing at least three runs in five straight games and allowing nine runs in 10 innings on the road. With the way Arizona is hitting the ball right now during this stretch, that's not good. I have to back the home team here.
