The Line: Houston Astros -139 / Colorado Rockies +116 -- Over/Under: 13.5
The Houston Astros and Colorado Rockies meet Wednesday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Houston Astros look for another win to build on their four-game winning streak. The Astros have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Houston Astros have won five straight games when scoring four or more runs. Michael Brantley leads the Astros with 100 hits and 45 RBI while Josh Reddick and Yuli Gurriel have combined for 171 hits and 70 RBI. Wade Miley gets the ball, and he is 6-4 with a 3.39 ERA and 80 strikeouts this season. Miley is 7-2 with a 3.89 ERA and 62 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Rockies have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last six games. The Colorado Rockies have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 105 hits and 67 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl have combined for 193 hits and 107 RBI. Peter Lambert gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 6.57 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. This will be Lambert’s first career game against the Astros.
The Astros are 48-21 in their last 69 during game 2 of a series, 0-6 in their last 6 Wednesday games and 9-4 in Mileys last 13 starts. The Rockies are 9-3 in their last 12 vs. American League West, 11-4 in their last 15 Wednesday games and 14-5 in their last 19 home games. The Astros are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Colorado and 8-2 in the last 10 meetings. The over is 4-0 in Lamberts last 4 starts overall. The under is 6-2 in Mileys last 8 starts overall.
Miley has allowed 11 runs in his last 26.1 innings, and he's familiar pitching in Coors due to starting his career with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The problem is Miley is allowing a 4.94 ERA and a .254 batting average on the road this season, much different than what he's done at home. Lambert has given up 32 hits and 18 runs through his first 24.2 innings of his career and most of that damage has come at home where he has a 9.95 ERA and .368 allowed batting average through 12.2 innings. This Astros lineup has to be drooling going up against this youngster and playing in this park. Give me the Astros.
