The Baltimore Orioles and Colorado Rockies meet Sunday in MLB action at Coors Field.

The Baltimore Orioles could use a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Orioles have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last six games. The Baltimore Orioles have lost six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with 59 hits and 24 RBI while Jonathan Villar and Dwight Smith Jr. have combined for 105 hits and 53 RBI. David Hess gets the ball, and he is 1-6 with a 6.75 ERA and 38 strikeouts this season. This will be Hess’ first career game against the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies could also use a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Rockies have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last six games. The Colorado Rockies have split their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 67 hits and 42 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 117 hits and 66 RBI. German Marquez gets the ball, and he is 5-2 with a 3.38 ERA and 72 strikeouts this season. This will be Marquez’s first career game against the Orioles.

The Orioles are 19-47 in their last 66 during game 3 of a series, 16-50 in their last 66 road games and 5-22 in Hess' last 27 starts. The Rockies are 4-1 in their last 5 home games, 4-0 in Marquez's last 4 home starts and 6-2 in Marquez's last 8 starts. The under is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings. The under is 16-7-2 in Marquez's last 25 starts overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Hess' last 6 starts overall.

The Baltimore Orioles simply don't win when Hess pitches, and he's allowed 13 runs and seven homers in his last 11 innings. I can only imagine how ugly things are going to get when he takes the mound in Coors. Marquez is coming off an eight-inning shutout against the Pittsburgh Pirates and has allowed three or less earned runs in six of his last 10 games. I'll take the Colorado Rockies because of the pitching edge but will include the RL due to the insane ML price.

Pick:
Colorado Rockies -1.5
