Toronto Blue Jays at Colorado Rockies
|Date & Time||Sunday June 2, 2019, 3:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Toronto Blue Jays +130 / Colorado Rockies -149 -- Over/Under: 12.5
The Toronto Blue Jays and Colorado Rockies meet Sunday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The Toronto Blue Jays could use a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Blue Jays have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Toronto Blue Jays have lost 16 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Freddy Galvis leads the Blue Jays with 52 hits and 23 RBI while Randal Grichuk and Justin Smoak have combined for 91 hits and 53 RBI. Aaron Sanchez gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 3.75 ERA and 56 strikeouts this season. This will be Sanchez’s second career game against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies look to stay hot while building on their seven-game winning streak. The Rockies have scored 28 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 13 straight games. The Colorado Rockies have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 78 hits and 51 RBI while Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 128 hits and 73 RBI. Antonio Senzatela gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 5.81 ERA and 29 strikeouts this season. This will be Senzatela’s first career game against the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays are 1-4 in their last 5 interleague games, 1-7 in their last 8 during game 3 of a series and 1-5 in Sanchez's last 6 starts. The Rockies are 6-0 in their last 6 home games, 5-2 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 5-2 in their last 7 Sunday games. The Blue Jays are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in Colorado and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 6-2 in Senzatela's last 8 starts overall. The over is 5-1 in Sanchez's last 6 road starts.
Sanchez has been solid up to this point, but he's pitching for a struggling Blue Jays team that's not providing much run support, and it's why he's lost six of his last seven games. The Colorado Rockies continue to find ways to win and put up crooked numbers offensively, so while Senzatela hasn't been good this season and has an ERA over six at home, you can count on this club picking up him up if things don't go well. These are two teams heading in completely different directions and there's no reason to hop off our last few bets. Give me the Rockies for the sweep.
