The Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Wednesday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing 10 of their last 13 games. The Rockies have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The Rockies have split their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 45 hits and 24 RBI while Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado have combined for 62 hits and 36 RBI. Jon Gray gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 6.23 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. Gray is 3-5 with a 5.74 ERA and 52 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win to snap their seven-game losing streak. The Diamondbacks have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last seven games. The Diamondbacks have lost 10 of their last 11 games when scoring three or less runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 39 hits and nine RBI while Starling Marte and David Peralta have combined for 66 hits and 32 RBI. Robbie Ray gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 8.33 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. Ray is 5-5 with a 5.58 ERA and 113 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 15-37 in their last 52 road games, 1-4 in their last 5 vs. National League West and 1-5 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series. The Diamondbacks are 7-1 in their last 8 home games, 0-4 in their last 4 games as a favorite and 0-6 in their last 6 games on grass. The under is 5-1 in Rockies last 6 road games. The under is 6-0 in Diamondbacks last 6 overall. The Rockies are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Arizona and 4-9 in the last 13 meetings.
Jon Gray has allowed 18 earned runs and 26 hits in his last 20 innings while Robbie Ray has allowed 17 earned runs and 20 hits in his last 18.2 innings. In 185 at bats against current Rockies hitters, Ray is allowing a .335 batting average and .387 OBP. The only way to pick this game for me is to side with the over, as both of these pitchers have been dog food for opposing hitters. We're going to see some fireworks tonight.
