The Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Tuesday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Rockies have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four straight games. The Rockies have lost six of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 45 hits and 24 RBI while Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado have combined for 58 hits and 34 RBI. German Marquez gets the ball, and he is 2-4 with a 4.38 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. Marquez is 3-5 with a 4.54 ERA and 89 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win to snap a six-game losing streak. The Diamondbacks have scored four runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six straight games. The Diamondbacks are 1-14 this season when scoring three or less runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 38 hits and nine RBI while Starling Marte and David Peralta have combined for 63 hits and 31 RBI. Alex Young gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA and 19 strikeouts this season. Young is 3-0 with a 3.68 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games, 7-3 in their last 10 during game 2 of a series and 1-10 in their last 11 overall. The Diamondbacks are 5-2 in their last 7 games as an underdog, 5-2 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 25-10 in their last 35 home games. The under is 4-1 in Rockies last 5 road games. The under is 5-0 in Diamondbacks last 5 overall. The Rockies are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Arizona.
German Marquez has allowed 16 earned runs and 31 hits in his last 25.1 innings while Alex Young has allowed eight runs and 15 hits in his last 14 innings. It's tough to back either of these teams in their current form and neither pitcher has been hot, but we know the Rockies offense is capable of exploding at any moment. At least they have that. The Arizona Diamondbacks are free falling rather quickly and can't string any offense together during this six-game losing streak. I'll back the Rockies and the cheap price on the road.
