The Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies face off on Friday in a doubleheader at Chase Field. This is a preview for Game 2 and since it’s a doubleheader this game will only be seven innings long. Both of these teams won't be making the playoffs.
THe Rockies can’t be happy with how they played this season but they did help play a little bit of the role of spoiler in the last game. The Rockies last game was against the San Francisco Giants and they were able to make the comeback and although it looked like they might blow it, a timely double play allowed them to come away with a victory. Ramiel Tapia was the difference in the last game putting up two RBI’s and one hit.
On the other side of this matchup is the Arizona Diamondbacks who have had some real struggles this season but coming into this game they have won two games in a row. Each of the last two games the Diamondbacks have scored seven runs while giving up only three runs total. The best offensive player this season for the Diamondbacks has been Kole Calhoun who comes into this game with 15 home runs and 37 RBI’s.
The under is 8-2-3 in the Rockies last 13 games overall. The Rockies are 2-6 in their last eight games overall. The Diamondbacks are 9-23 in their last 32 games overall. The over is 12-5-2 in Clarke’s last 19 starts overall. The under is 7-2 in the last nine meetings in Arizona between the Rockies and Diamondbacks.
Taylor Clarke will get the start for the Diamondbacks and coming into this game he sits with a 2-0 record and an ERA of 3.99. Clarke has gotten good run support, something that hasn't always been the case for other pitchers.
Clarke has been good this season and that will continue in this game. Look for the Diamondbacks to run up the score in this game and that will be enough to come away with a victory. For added value look for them to win on the run line.
