The Line: Colorado Rockies / Arizona Diamondbacks -- Over/Under: Click Here for the Latest Odds
The Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Friday in MLB game two of an MLB doubleheader at Chase Field.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Rockies have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Rockies have won three straight games when scoring four or more runs. Trevor Story leads the Rockies with 65 hits and 26 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Raimel Tapia have combined for 114 hits and 56 RBI. The Colorado Rockies didn't list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Diamondbacks have won seven straight games when scoring four or more runs. David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 57 hits and 31 RBI while Christian Walker and Nick Ahmed have combined for 105 hits and 58 RBI. Taylor Clarke gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 3.99 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. Clarke is 0-0 with a 9.00 ERA and two strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Taylor Clarke has allowed 11 runs and 18 hits in his last 14 innings while walking six batters and striking out 10 during that span. This season through 38.1 innings, Clarke is allowing a .206 batting average and a .294 on base percentage. At home through 20 innings, Clarke is allowing a .178 batting average with 22 strikeouts. Clarke has been more than respectable this season and he's going up against a Rockies team that's been very inconsistent and has had scoring issues all season. It's never easy to predict the second game of a doubleheader, especially when one team didn't announce the starting pitcher, but Clarke has been solid for much of this season and the Diamondbacks are at home.
I'll take my chances with the Arizona Diamondbacks in the second game of this doubleheader.
