The Colorado Rockies face the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday, April 26th, 2022 at Citizen's Bank Park for game two of a four-game series.
The Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Colorado Rockies by the final score of 8-2 on Monday night as the Phils were able to take the first game of this series. The Rockies struck first in that game as Connor Joe and Randal Grichuk both hit solo home runs in the early innings to make it 2-0 Colorado. The Phillies would score eight unanswered runs on Kyle Freeland and the Rockies' bullpen to take game one and earn their seventh win of the year. The Phillies are now 7-10 this season and 5-5 at home, putting them in fourth place in the NL East standings. The Rockies are still a strong 10-6 this season and that is good enough for third place in the NL West standings currently.
The Colorado Rockies are projected to bring right-hander German Marquez to the mound to face the Phillies on Tuesday night. Marquez is off to a rough start to the 2022 campaign. Marquez is 0-0 with a 4.67 ERA and he has allowed four home runs in his first three outings. Marquez has pitched at Coors Field in all three of his starts this season, and as we know, Coors Field is the most hitter-friendly stadium in the MLB, so it will be interesting to see how well Marquez pitches in his first road outing of the year.
The Philadelphia Phillies are sending right-hander Zach Eflin to the mound for game two of this series. Eflin is 0-1 with a 5.27 ERA through his first 13.2 innings of work this season. Eflin has limited walks and has not allowed a single home run this year, but he still owns a high WHIP of 1.46 because of how many base hits he is conceding (17 in 13.2 innings).
I was impressed by the Phillies' comeback on Monday night, but it is not enough for me to lay this price with Eflin even at home. The Rockies have shown that they have what it takes to at least compete on the road, and I think German Marquez has a strong outing here to keep the Rockies in this one. I will take a shot with Colorado here.
