The Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Coors Field. These are two teams have struggled this season.
The Diamondbacks come into this game with a 65-71 record overall and they have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games the pitching has given up 12 runs, and they need better pitching in this game. The Diamondbacks are giving up 4.52 runs per game which is 21st in the league. Christian Walker has been the top offensive player for the Diamondbacks hitting 32 home runs and driving in 78 RBIs.
The Rockies sit with a 59-79 record overall and they have won two games in a row. On Wednesday, the Brewers scored eight runs and that led to the victory. The offense has been fine for the Rockies, but the pitching has been an issue. They are giving up 5.41 runs per game which is last in the league. C.J. Cron is having a big season for the Rockies hitting 26 home runs and driving in 90 RBIs.
On the mound for the Diamondbacks is Zach Davies who sits a 2-4 record and an ERA of 3.74. In his last start against the Milwaukee Brewers, he went 4.2 innings giving up six hits and one run.
On the mound for the Rockies is German Marquez who sits with an 8-10 record and an ERA of 4.86. In his last start against the Cincinnati Reds, he went seven innings giving up three hits and two runs.
The Diamondbacks are 4-0 in Davies last four starts. The over is 6-1 in Marquez’s last seven Friday starts. The over is 5-1 in the Rockies' last six games against a team with a losing record.
The Diamondbacks have won the last four starts against Davies, and I expect it’s going to continue here. The Rockies bats are going to ice cold against Davies who gave up only one run in his last start. Back the Diamondbacks on the money line. I am also throwing a few dollars on the Diamondbacks on the run line to cash.
