The Colorado Rockies and Chicago Cubs meet Sunday in MLB action at Wrigley Field. The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last 6 games. The Chicago Cubs look for a win after winning 5 of their last 8 games.

The Colorado Rockies have scored 7 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 4 straight games. The Rockies have lost 6 of their last 8 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. CJ Cron leads the Rockies with 140 hits and 97 RBI while Brendan Rodgers and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 259 hits and 135 RBI. Ryan Feltner gets the ball, and he is 2-8 with a 6.12 ERA and 68 strikeouts this season. This will be Feltner’s first career game against the Cubs.

The Chicago Cubs have scored 9 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 4 of their last 8 games. The Cubs have won 5 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Ian Happ leads the Cubs with 141 hits and 67 RBI while Nico Hoerner and Seiya Suzuki have combined for 227 hits and 94 RBI. Javier Assad gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 2.53 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. This will be Assad’s first career game against the Rockies.

The Rockies are 19-47 in their last 66 road games and 2-8 in their last 10 Sunday games. The Cubs are 2-5 in their last 7 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 4-0 in Rockies last 4 overall. The under is 9-1 in Cubs last 10 overall. The Rockies are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Chicago.

I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams or either of these starting pitchers. With that said, the Chicago Cubs have played better baseball over the last 2 weeks and their offense has shown more signs of life this series overall. The Colorado Rockies have been horrible on the road dating back to last season, and they haven't had much success playing in Wrigley either. Cheap price. Give me the Cubs to win their sixth game in their last 9 tries.
