I’m not running to the window to back either of these teams or these starting pitchers. Both the Rockies and Diamondbacks have had issues with consistency and both of these pitchers have ERAs well over five. Throw in a nice hitters park, and we should see some numbers here. Expect some fireworks. Give me the over seven runs.
