The Arizona Diamondbacks have split their last 10 games when scoring at least three runs. Paul Goldschmidt leads the Diamondbacks with 95 hits and 51 RBI while David Peralta and Ketel Marte have combined for 171 hits and 86 RBI. Shelby Miller gets the ball, and he is 0-3 with a 9.00 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Miller is 2-4 with a 5.94 ERA and 49 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look for a bounce back win after winning eight of their last 11 games. The Rockies have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Colorado Rockies have won 11 of their last 15 games when scoring at least three runs.

German Marquez gets the ball, and he is 7-8 with a 4.92 ERA and 98 strikeouts this season. Marquez is 0-4 with a 4.47 ERA and 39 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 1-10 in their last 11 Wednesday games, 2-6 in Millers last 8 road starts and 7-19 in Millers last 26 starts. The Rockies are 4-1 in their last 5 Wednesday games, 4-1 in Marquezs last 5 Wednesday starts and 3-8 in Marquezs last 11 home starts. The Diamondbacks are 8-0 in the last 8 meetings in Colorado, 13-3 in the last 16 meetings and the Rockies are 1-4 in Marquezs last 5 starts vs. Diamondbacks.
Marquez usually isn't the toughest pitcher in the world to hit, but he's given up just seven hits and two runs in his last 14 innings. Miller has been downright awful in 14 innings this season, allowing 20 hits and 16 runs with an allowed batting average of .328 and a WHIP of 1.79. It's quite clear Miller is a pitcher who is still trying to find himself following Tommy John surgery. The Colorado Rockies and the somewhat decent price seems like the only play here.
