The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies will finish up their MLB series on Wednesday.

In the Monday opener, the Diamondbacks took an 8-6 win. On Tuesday, Arizona got another big victory 9-3.

For the Wednesday game, the Diamondbacks will send out Robbie Ray in the start. Over his 140.0 innings and 10-7 mark so far, Ray has a 3.99 ERA with 185 Ks and 61 BBs.

The Diamondbacks logged 11 hits in their Tuesday victory, scoring seven runs in the first two innings. Nick Ahmed led the team on three hits, three RBI and a homer.

Over on the Rockies’ side they’re going with Kyle Freeland on Wednesday. Across 88.0 innings and a 3-10 record so far, Freeland has a 7.06 ERA with 70 Ks and 35 BBs.

Colorado put up 13 hits on Tuesday but oddly enough could only put three runs on the board. Blackmon and Tapia each had three hits but only a run between them.

The Diamondbacks are 12-5 in their last 17 in game three of a series and 11-5 in their last 16 Wednesday games. Arizona is 6-1 in Ray’s last seven starts and 2-5 in his last seven with four days’ rest.

Meanwhile, the Rockies are 1-4 in their last five in game three of a series and 0-6 in the last six Wednesday games. Colorado is 1-5 in Freeland’s last six starts and 0-7 in his last seven Wednesday starts.

Ray has been pretty steady lately. He’s 5-1 in his last seven games with five quality starts mixed in there. His last time out, Ray put up 6.0 innings with two hits and two earned against the Dodgers.

As for Freeland, he’s steadied himself a bit better after that ugly run with five earned in his last 11.0 innings and two starts—one at Coors.

I don’t expect Ray to put up superb numbers here but he should do well enough for the Diamondbacks to be in position to win.
