|Date & Time||Wednesday May 29, 2019, 8:40 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Arizona Diamondbacks -122 / Colorado Rockies +112 -- Over/Under: 11
The Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies meet Wednesday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Arizona Diamondbacks could use a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost nine straight games when scoring three or less runs. Eduardo Escobar leads the Diamondbacks with 62 hits and 42 RBI while Ketel Marte and David Peralta have combined for 119 hits and 68 RBI. Robbie Ray gets the ball, and he is 4-1 with a 3.26 ERA and 76 strikeouts this season. Ray is 4-4 with a 5.43 ERA and 82 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look for another win after winning six of their last eight games. The Rockies have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 12 of their last 13 games. The Colorado Rockies have won 10 of their last 15 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. Jeff Hoffman gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 8.10 ERA and nine strikeouts this season. Hoffman is 0-2 with a 10.38 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games, 7-16 in their last 23 during game 3 of a series and 5-1 in Ray's last 6 starts. The Rockies are 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games, 4-1 in their last 5 vs. National League West and 0-5 in Hoffman's last 5 starts with 4 days of rest. The Diamondbacks are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Colorado, 2-7 in the last 9 meetings and 3-7 in Ray's last 10 starts vs. Rockies. The over is 21-7 in Rockies last 28 overall. The over is 4-1 in Ray's last 5 starts on grass.
The Colorado Rockies are playing better baseball at the moment, but Hoffman has just 10 innings under this belt this season and has given up 13 hits and nine runs. Both games were at home, and Hoffman allowed 15 hits and nine runs in eight innings at Coors last year. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won six of Ray's last eight starts, and he's given up just six runs in his last 20 innings while striking out 32. Because of the pitching advantage, I'll lean toward the Arizona Diamondbacks.
