|Date & Time||Tuesday June 18, 2019, 9:40 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Colorado Rockies +125 / Arizona Diamondbacks -135 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Tuesday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Rockies have scored 39 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Colorado Rockies have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 89 hits and 57 RBI while Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 166 hits and 95 RBI. Antonio Senzatela gets the ball, and he is 5-5 with a 5.48 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. Senzatela is 1-4 with a 5.60 ERA and 24 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 11 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Eduardo Escobar leads the Diamondbacks with 83 hits and 58 RBI while Ketel Marte and Adam Jones have combined for 152 hits and 89 RBI. Merrill Kelly gets the ball, and he is 7-6 with a 3.73 ERA and 63 strikeouts this season. This will be Kelly’s second career game against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 7-1 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series, 7-2 in their last 9 vs. National League West and 5-1 in Senzatela's last 6 starts vs. National League West. The Diamondbacks are 8-0 in their last 8 games following an off day, 11-5 in their last 16 during game 1 of a series and 1-6 in their last 7 vs. National League West. The Rockies are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Arizona and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 5-1 in Kelly's last 6 starts overall. The under is 10-3 in Senzatela's last 13 road starts.
Senzatela has been getting rocked pretty much all season and it hasn't been much different when you take him out of Coors, as he has a 4.70 ERA and a .292 allowed batting average on the road. Kelly has allowed 12 hits and two runs in his last 22.1 innings and he has a healthy 2.35 ERA in 38.1 innings at home this season. The Rockies have had their way with the Diamondbacks in recent games and enter this series on fire offensively. I'm still siding with Arizona because of more confidence in their starting pitcher at the moment.
