The Oakland Athletics and Colorado Rockies meet Tuesday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Oakland Athletics look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Athletics have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Athletics have won six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 39 hits and 21 RBI while Mark Canha and Robbie Grossman have combined for 72 hits and 43 RBI. Sean Manaea gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 4.46 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. This will be Manaea’s second career game against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Rockies have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Rockies have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 57 hits and 37 RBI while Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado have combined for 97 hits and 49 RBI. Antonio Senzatela gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 3.69 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. Senzatela is 2-0 with a 2.53 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
The Athletics are 17-6 in their last 23 Tuesday games, 61-26 in their last 87 games as a favorite and 31-14 in their last 45 games as a road favorite. The Rockies are 6-14 in their last 20 Tuesday games, 4-11 in their last 15 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 games following an off day. The under is 3-0-1 in Rockies last 4 overall. The Athletics are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings.
Sean Manaea has allowed two runs and six hits in his last 12 innings while Antonio Senzatela has allowed six runs and 13 hits in his last 10.1 innings. The Colorado Rockies are coming off a rough week, and now they're going up against an Athletic offense that's picked things up lately and has an improved Manaea on the hill. In Coors, this A's offense should rake. I like the Oakland Athletics to get the job done in this contest.
