|Date & Time||Sunday July 7, 2019, 4:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Colorado Rockies -127 / Arizona Diamondbacks +117 -- Over/Under: 9
The Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Sunday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The Colorado Rockies need a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Rockies have scored four runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last 12 games. The Colorado Rockies have lost six of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 106 hits and 67 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl have combined for 197 hits and 108 RBI. German Marquez gets the ball, and he is 8-3 with a 4.38 ERA and 120 strikeouts this season. Marquez is 3-4 with a 4.42 ERA and 84 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last six games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 109 hits and 53 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and David Peralta have combined for 185 hits and 110 RBI. Alex Young gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 1.23 ERA and six strikeouts this season. This will be Young’s first career game against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series, 0-4 in their last 4 Sunday games and 11-5 in Marquezs last 16 starts. The Diamondbacks are 8-1 in their last 9 during game 3 of a series, 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 5-14 in their last 19 Sunday games. The Rockies are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Arizona, 18-5 in the last 23 meetings and 5-0 in Marquezs last 5 starts vs. Diamondbacks. The over is 9-3 in Marquezs last 12 starts overall.
The Colorado Rockies seem to win a lot when Marquez is on the hill, but we're still talking about a pitcher who has allowed 42 hits and 26 earned runs in his last 36 innings. In 141 at bats against current Arizona hitters, Marquez is allowing a .291 batting average with six homers and 23 RBI. In his last start at Chase Field, Marquez allowed seven hits and five runs in six innings. Young has just two major league games under his belt, but he's been solid in that limited role, and both of those games came on the road. Either way, the Rockies aren't playing well enough to be worthy of juice on the road, and Arizona hits Marquez well. I'll take the Diamondbacks and the plus money.
