The Colorado Rockies will play the New York Mets in Game 4 of their series at Citi Field on Sunday afternoon.

The Colorado Rockies are 54-74 this season and have lost four games in a row. Colorado has lost the first three games of this series by scores of 3-1, 7-6, and 3-0. The Colorado pitching staff has a 5.12 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP, and a .277 opponent batting average this season. The Rockies offense has scored 574 runs with a .262 batting average and a .322 on base percentage. C.J. Cron is batting .272 with 24 home runs and 84 RBI’s for the Rockies this season. The projected starter for Colorado is German Marquez, who is 6-10 with a 5.22 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP over 139.2 innings pitched this season.

The New York Mets are 82-46 this season and have won three games in a row. Prior to winning the first three games of this series, New York lost both games in their series against the Yankees. The New York pitching staff has a 3.55 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a .236 opponent batting average. The Mets offense has scored 607 runs with a .258 batting average and a .330 on base percentage this year. Pete Alonso is batting .273 with 31 home runs and 105 RBI’s for the Mets this season. The projected starter for New York is Max Scherzer, who is 9-3 with a 2.33 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP over 115.2 innings pitched this season.

Colorado is 6-15 in their last 21 game four’s of a series and 1-5 in their last 6 games. The over is 7-4 in Colorado’s last 11 road games. New York is 5-0 in their last 5 Sunday games and 24-9 in their last 33 games. The under is 5-1 in New York’s last 6 home games. The under is 13-4-2 in these two teams last 19 head to head meetings.

New York continues to try and hold off the Braves, who have made up a ton of ground in the NL East standings over the last few weeks. Colorado is last in the NL West, but has been fairly competitive this season. New York is starting Max Scherzer, who has allowed eight runs over his last 13 innings of work. For Colorado, German Marquez has allowed nine runs over his last 12 innings pitched. I like the over in this game, as neither pitcher has been sharp in recent games. Scherzer is due to get back on track, but the Colorado offense has been pretty good this year.
