The Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies meet Saturday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 12 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won 10 of their last 11 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. Luke Weaver gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 3.73 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season. Weaver is 0-1 with a 13.50 ERA and five strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Rockies have scored 31 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. The Colorado Rockies have won 12 of their last 15 games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 41 hits and 27 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 73 hits and 41 RBI. Kyle Freeland gets the ball, and he is 2-4 with a 4.81 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. Freeland is 3-2 with a 3.80 ERA and 34 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 3-10 in their last 13 Saturday games and 1-4 in their last 5 vs. National League West. The Rockies are 1-5 in their last 6 Saturday games, 14-2 in Freelands last 16 home starts and 19-7 in Freelands last 26 starts. The Diamondbacks are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Colorado, 1-5 in the last 6 meetings and the Rockies are 4-0 in Freelands last 4 starts vs. Diamondbacks. The under is 46-18-4 in Freelands last 68 starts overall. The under is 10-4 in Diamondbacks last 14 overall.
Weaver has been great as of late, which includes allowing three runs in his last 15.2 innings and striking out at least five in his last four starts. Freeland has been a bit hit or miss up to this point, but the Rockies have a ton of success whenever he pitches, which not only includes wins in 14 of his last 16 home starts, but he's also 12-2 in his last 14 games as a home favorite. It's hard to argue with those numbers. I'll side with the Rockies.
