ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll probably take a stab on the Rockies here, but I’m also probably staying away. Lamet came back to a rough outing back on May 31, giving up five earned on seven hits in 3.0 innings during a loss at Chase Field. Lamet is going to need to muster at least a few good frames in this one, but I think he’s capable against this lineup. Colorado has scored four or more runs in three of their last four games as well, so the bats will need to stay hot in order to get a Tuesday victory.
