The Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies meet Friday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win to snap a five-game losing streak. The Diamondbacks have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Diamondbacks haven’t won a game when scoring three or less runs since April 4. David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 40 hits and 28 RBI while Pavin Smith and Eduardo Escobar have combined for 74 hits and 43 RBI. Riley Smith gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 6.83 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season. Smith is 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA and four strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies need a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Rockies have scored one run in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last 10 games. The Rockies are 1-19 this season when scoring three or less runs. Ryan McMahon leads the Rockies with 42 hits and 26 RBI while Raimel Tapia and Trevor Story have combined for 83 hits and 43 RBI. German Marquez gets the ball, and he is 2-4 with a 5.56 ERA and 48 strikeouts this season. Marquez is 4-5 with a 4.26 ERA and 106 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 20-44 in their last 64 road games and 3-13 in their last 16 overall. The Rockies are 2-6 in their last 8 games following an off day and 21-43 in their last 64 overall. The under is 4-1 in Diamondbacks last 5 road games. The over is 3-0-1 in Rockies last 4 home games. The over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
I’m not running to the window to back either of these losing teams that can’t score runs, and the starting pitching matchup is even worse. This is a pass for me. However, if forced to pick, I’d give the edge to the Rockies who are at home. The Arizona Diamondbacks are coming off a late game in Los Angeles and the offense has yet to get going. Give me the Rockies if forced to pick.
