The Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies meet Tuesday in MLB action at Coors Field.

The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Diamondbacks have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 11 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Eduardo Escobar leads the Diamondbacks with 60 hits and 40 RBI while David Peralta and Ketel Marte have combined for 117 hits and 68 RBI. Merrill Kelly gets the ball, and he is 4-5 with a 4.75 ERA and 40 strikeouts this season. This will be Kelly’s first career game against the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. The Rockies have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last eight games. The Colorado Rockies have split their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 71 hits and 46 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 117 hits and 66 RBI. Antonio Senzatela gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 6.21 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. Senzatela is 1-4 with a 6.14 ERA and 22 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 40-17 in their last 57 Tuesday games. The Rockies are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 5-2 in Senzatela's last 7 starts with 4 days of rest. The Diamondbacks are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings and the over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 6-1 in Senzatela's last 7 starts overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Kelly's last 4 starts with 5 days of rest.

Both of these lineups are putting up crooked numbers consistently and neither of these pitchers are tough to hit. Kelly is allowing a .283 batting average on the season and has an ERA over seven while a .312 batting average on the road. Senzatela is giving up a .301 batting average on the season and has an ERA of 7.99 in the month of May. I want nothing to do with either of these pitchers, so I'm going to bet on the lineups staying hot and going over the total.

Pick:
Over 12.5
