The Philadelphia Phillies and Colorado Rockies meet Sunday in MLB action at Coors Field. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
The Philadelphia Phillies have scored 15 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 8 games. The Phillies have won 4 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Nick Castellanos leads the Phillies with 46 hits and 24 RBI, while Trea Turner and Bryson Stott have combined for 84 hits and 22 RBI. Aaron Nola gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 4.44 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. Nola is 4-1 with a 3.42 ERA and 59 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies have scored 11 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 7 of their last 10 games. The Rockies have won 7 of their last 8 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Kris Bryant leads the Rockies with 42 hits and 13 RBI, while Elias Diaz and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 71 hits and 32 RBI. Kyle Freeland gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 3.57 ERA and 30 strikeouts this season. Freeland is 1-3 with a 4.20 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The Rockies are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 8-3 in their last 11 overall. The under is 5-2 in Rockies last 7 overall. The Phillies are 4-11 in the last 15 meetings in Colorado and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Philadelphia Phillies are playing their best ball of the season and their offense is picking up steam. The Colorado Rockies continue to underachieve, and it's tough to get behind them with confidence. Aaron Nola is the more trustworthy pitcher over Kyle Freeland, who hasn't had much success against the Phillies. Give me the road team and the RL for max betting value.
