The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing eight of their last 12 games. The Rockies have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 12 games. The Colorado Rockies have won six of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 106 hits and 67 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl have combined for 196 hits and 108 RBI. Jon Gray gets the ball, and he is 9-5 with a 3.84 ERA and 111 strikeouts this season. Gray is 3-3 with a 4.71 ERA and 46 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.

The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 108 hits and 53 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and David Peralta have combined for 184 hits and 110 RBI. Robbie Ray gets the ball, and he is 5-6 with a 4.10 ERA and 129 strikeouts this season. Ray is 4-5 with a 5.49 ERA and 97 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.

The Rockies are 4-11 in their last 15 Saturday games, 14-4 in Grays last 18 starts during game 2 of a series and 6-2 in Grays last 8 road starts. The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in their last 6 Saturday games, 3-14 in their last 17 during game 2 of a series and 0-4 in Rays last 4 starts. The Diamondbacks are 1-4 in Rays last 5 home starts vs. Rockies and 1-4 in Rays last 5 starts vs. Rockies. The over is 31-14-1 in Rays last 46 home starts. The over is 5-2-1 in Grays last 8 road starts.

Gray is coming off a solid month of June where he allowed 11 runs in 37.1 innings, and the Rockies have won seven of his last nine starts. Ray has allowed 30 hits and 20 runs in his last 36 innings and has had serious trouble keeping the ball in the park. In 104 at bats against current Arizona hitters, Gray is allowing a .298 batting average with two homers. In 194 at bats against current Colorado hitters, Ray is allowing a .335 batting average with 13 homers. Both teams hit these pitchers hard and I'm not sure I trust Gray on the road. Give me the over.

Over 8.5
