The Cincinnati Reds and Colorado Rockies meet Tuesday in MLB action at Coors Field. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Cincinnati Reds have scored 15 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 8 of their last 10 games. The Reds have won 5 of their last 7 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Jonathan India leads the Reds with 43 hits and 17 RBI, while TJ Friedl and Tyler Stephenson have combined for 74 hits and 33 RBI. The Cincinnati Reds didn’t announce a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.

The Colorado Rockies have scored 17 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 7 of their last 9 games. The Rockies have won 9 of their last 10 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Kris Bryant leads the Rockies with 44 hits and 14 RBI, while Elias Diaz and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 75 hits and 32 RBI. Chase Anderson gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 2 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 6-3 with a 3.72 ERA and 66 strikeouts in his career against the Reds.

The Reds are 17-36 in their last 53 road games and 5-11 in their last 16 Tuesday games. The Rockies are 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 9-4 in their last 13 overall. The over is 5-1 in Reds last 6 Tuesday games. The under is 4-0 in Rockies last 4 overall. The Reds are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Colorado.

It's hard to get behind the Cincinnati Reds in general, but it's even tougher when not knowing who the starting pitcher is going to be. The Colorado Rockies offense has picked up lately, and Chase Anderson should be eager to show out in his debut with his new team. Anderson also pitched in 9 games for the Reds last season, so he's familiar with a lot of those guys. Give me the Rockies and the cheap price.
