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

The Arizona Diamondbacks look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Diamondbacks have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 11 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won 12 of their last 13 games when scoring more than one run. David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 40 hits and 20 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and Adam Jones have combined for 65 hits and 35 RBI. Robbie Ray gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 4.18 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. Ray is 3-4 with a 5.77 ERA and 75 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies look fora win after winning five of their last eight games. The Rockies have scored 25 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Colorado Rockies have won 12 of their last 14 games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 38 hits and 27 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 71 hits and 39 RBI. Tyler Anderson gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 11.34 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 2-0 with a 5.77 ERA and 45 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks are 4-0 in their last 4 games following an off day, 1-4 in their last 5 vs. National League West and 4-0 in their last 4 road games. The Rockies are 5-2 in their last 7 home games, 3-7 in their last 10 vs. National League West and 0-6 in Andersons last 6 starts with 4 days of rest. The Diamondbacks are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Colorado, 0-5 in the last 5 meetings and 1-4 in Rays last 5 starts vs. Rockies. The over is 4-0 in Andersons last 4 starts overall. The under is 5-2 in Rays last 7 road starts.

We're getting even money with a Colorado Rockies team at home that's won five straight against the Arizona Diamondbacks and eight of the last 10 meetings overall. Also, in 136 at bats against current Rockies, Ray is allowing a .353 batting average with 11 homers. That's, uh, not good. Both of these teams are playing solid baseball at the moment and it should be an offensive explosion in Coors, but I have to give the edge to the Rockies at home because of the better price.
