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

The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Diamondbacks have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 12 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won five straight games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 146 hits and 68 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and Nick Ahmed have combined for 236 hits and 155 RBI. Zac Gallen gets the ball, and he is 2-3 with a 2.40 ERA and 49 strikeouts this season. This will be Gallen’s first career game against the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies could use a win after losing 11 of their last 15 games. The Rockies have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Colorado Rockies have lost five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 138 hits and 65 RBI while Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story have combined for 259 hits and 154 RBI. Jon Gray gets the ball, and he is 10-8 with a 4.06 ERA and 143 strikeouts this season. Gray is 3-4 with a 4.77 ERA and 50 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks are 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 3-10 in their last 13 Tuesday games. The Rockies are 6-20 in their last 26 during game 2 of a series, 6-2 in Gray's last 8 home starts and 1-4 in Gray's last 5 starts. The Diamondbacks are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Colorado and 3-8 in the last 11 meetings. The under is 6-2-1 in Gray's last 9 starts overall. The under is 7-3-2 in Diamondbacks last 12 Tuesday games.

Gallen allowed one hit and zero runs in five innings against the Phillies in his Diamondbacks debut, and he's allowing a .179 batting average on the season through 41.1 innings. Gray has allowed 43 hits and 20 earned runs in his last 39 innings, and he has a 3.88 ERA and .270 allowed batting average at home. Gallen has been surprisingly good up to this point, but it's going to be interesting to see how the youngster handles Coors. Either way, we're getting slight plus money with a promising pitcher and against a Rockies team that's falling apart these last couple of weeks. I'll take a stab with the Arizona Diamondbacks based on the value.

Arizona Diamondbacks +105
