The PHiladelphia Phillies and Colorado Rockies face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Coors Field.
The Philadelphia Phillies come into this game with a 9-9 record overall but they did lose two of their last three games against the San Francisco Giants. The Phillies last game against the Giants the offense managed six runs and that led to a 6-5 victory. Bryce Harper is having another nice start to the season hitting four home runs and driving in eight RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Colorado Rockies who have really struggled this season sitting with a 6-12 record overall Even with all the struggles the Rockies have won two games in a row including their last game against the Astros while their won 6-3; Ryan McMahon has been the best player for the Rockies hitting hitting six home runs and driving in 10 RBI’s. IN this game the Rockies need the offense to be strong.
Vince Velasquez will get the start for the PHillies and on the season he has gone 4.8 innings giving up three hits and four runs. In his last start he went 2.1 innings giving up two hits and zero runs.
On the mound for the Rockies will be German Marque and so far this season he has pitched 22.2 innings giving up 19 hits and nine runs. In his last start against the Mets he went 7.0 innings giving up three hits and two runs.
Phillies are 3-7 in their last 10 games vs. a right-handed starter. Phillies are 22-55 in their last 77 games as a road underdog. Rockies are 5-2 in their last 7 home games. Rockies are 62-29 in their last 91 games as a home favorite. Rockies are 20-41 in their last 61 overall.Under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Colorado. Phillies are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
I still don’t trust Marquez and the Phillies are going to take advantage of it. Back the Phillies to come away with a win on the money line.
