The Oakland Athletics and Colorado Rockies meet Friday in MLB action at Coors Field. The Oakland Athletics look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Colorado Rockies look to build on their four-game winning streak.
The Oakland Athletics have scored 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Athletics have won six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Mark Canha leads the Athletics with 51 hits and 19 RBI while Matt Olson and Ramon Laureano have combined for 98 hits and 59 RBI. Frankie Montas gets the ball, and he is 5-5 with a 4.45 ERA and 63 strikeouts this season. Montas is 0-2 with a 4.82 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies have scored 20 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Rockies have lost five of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Raimel Tapia leads the Rockies with 55 hits and 30 RBI while Ryan McMahon and Trevor Story have combined for 100 hits and 55 RBI. Jon Gray gets the ball, and he is 4-5 with a 3.71 ERA and 50 strikeouts this season. This will be Gray’s first career game against the Athletics.
The Athletics are 6-0 in their last 6 games following an off day and 5-2 in their last 7 road games. The Rockies are 5-0 in their last 5 home games and 4-0 in their last 4 interleague games. The over is 6-2 in Athletics last 8 road games. The under is 5-0 in Rockies last 5 overall. The Athletics are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Colorado. The Athletics are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings.
The Athletics are the better team and should be favored, but Montas has been hittable this season and you have to fear him at Coors. Jon Gray has been the better pitcher this season and the Rockies are having a strong week. I understand the line, but the value is with the Rockies and the plus money.
