The Line: Colorado Rockies -108 / Milwaukee Brewers -102 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The Colorado Rockies and Milwaukee Brewers meet Tuesday in MLB action at Miller Park.
The Colorado Rockies look for a victory after winning eight of their last 12 games. The Rockies have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Colorado Rockies have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 34 hits and 15 RBI while Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado have combined for 64 hits and 39 RBI. German Marquez gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 2.54 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. Marquez is 1-1 with a 5.01 ERA and 25 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for another win after losing eight of their last 12 games. The Brewers have scored 15 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 36 hits and 34 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Yasmani Grandal have combined for 57 hits and 21 RBI. Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball, and he is 2-3 with a 6.35 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. Chacin is 2-1 with a 3.32 ERA and 22 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. National League Central, 4-1 in Marquezs last 5 road starts and 5-1 in Marquezs last 6 starts. The Brewers are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. National League West, 2-5 in Chacins last 7 home starts and 0-4 in Chacins last 4 starts. The Rockies are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee, 1-6 in the last 7 meetings and 1-4 in Marquezs last 5 starts vs. Brewers. The under is 13-3 in Chacins last 16 starts overall. The under is 5-1-2 in Marquezs last 8 starts overall.
The under has dominated the trends for both of these pitchers, but both of these guys have a tendency to get a lot of the plate and can get hit hard. I have to expect that when both guys are going up against offenses that can score quickly. In 82 at bats against current Brewers hitters, Marquez is allowing a .293 batting average with three homers. Chacin has allowed 12 earned runs in his last 11.1 innings and has had issues keeping the ball in the park overall this season. I'm going against the trends here and calling for an over.
