The New York Mets and Colorado Rockies meet Tuesday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The New York Mets need a win after losing three of their last four games. The Mets have scored nine runs in their last three games four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The New York Mets have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Amed Rosario leads the Mets with 162 hits and 61 RBI while Jeff McNeil and Pete Alonso have combined for 292 hits and 177 RBI. Marcus Stroman gets the ball, and he is 8-13 with a 3.35 ERA and 142 strikeouts this season. This will be Stroman’s second career game against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Rockies have scored 30 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four straight games. The Colorado Rockies have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 175 hits and 117 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 338 hits and 161 RBI. Tim Melville gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 5.16 ERA and 20 strikeouts this season. This will be Melville’s first career game against the Mets.
The Mets are 6-2 in their last 8 vs. National League West, 15-6 in their last 21 Tuesday games and 5-2 in their last 7 games on grass. The Rockies are 16-39 in their last 55 during game 2 of a series, 3-10 in their last 13 vs. a team with a winning record and 1-10 in their last 11 Tuesday games. The Mets are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in Colorado and 3-8 in the last 11 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Rockies last 7 vs. National League East. The under is 4-1 in Stromans last 5 starts overall.
Stroman has allowed 21 hits and seven earned runs in his last 16.1 innings, and he has a 2.92 ERA and .266 allowed batting average on the road. Melville has allowed 10 hits and seven runs in his last 8.2 innings, and he has a 9.00 ERA and .405 allowed batting average at home. Stroman has been hit or miss since coming over to New York and isn’t worth being a decent sized favorite on the road, especially in Coors where even the best pitchers in the world can get rocked. The Colorado Rockies have found their offense again and have some value as a home dog, the same way they did last night.
