The Colorado Rockies and Cincinnati Reds face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at the Great American Ballpark. The Reds and Rockies game was rained out on Saturday and this will now be a doubleheader. On Friday it was the Reds that secured the 3-2 victory.
The Rockies come into this game with a 56-77 record overall and on Friday night the offense wasn’t good enough. The Rockies offense overall has been fine, but the pitching has been a big issue and it will need to be better in this game. The Rockies are giving up 5.38 runs per game which is 29th in all of baseball. The top offensive player for the Rockies has been C.J. Cron who has hit 24 home runs and driven in 86 RBIs.
The Reds come into this game with a 52-78 record overall. The Reds offense has been inconsistent, but the pitching has been the big issue. The Reds are giving up 5.12 runs per game which is 28th in the league. One strength of this team is with the defense. They are only averaging 0.48 runs per game which is 11th in the league.
On the mound for the Rockies in Game 1 is Jose Urena who finished last season with a 3-5 record and an ERA of 5.80. In his last start against the Atlanta Braves he went five innings giving up six hits and two runs.
On the mound for the Reds in Game 1 is Chase Anderson who sits with an 0-2 record and an ERA of 27.00. In 2.1 innings so far this season he has given seven runs total.
The Reds are 8-1 in their last nine games on Sunday. The under is 6-0 in the Rockies last six road games. The under is 6-0 in the Rockies' last six road games.
Urena’s record and ERA don’t look great, but I think that is a bit deceiving. Anderson has pitched only 2.1 innings and given up seven runs. Look for the Rockies bats to run up the score here and that will be the difference as Colorado gets the job done. Back the Rockies on the money line in Game 1.
In Game 2, there haven’t been any pitchers announced, but I do trust the Rockies bats a bit more, so it’s a lean to them. The Reds bullpen will also be worked hard in the first game, and that will work against them.
