Shane’s Free Pick

The Rockies pitching is giving up 5.08 runs per game and it’s going to be ugly here. Gomber is coming off a good start, but he still sits with an ERA of 6.75 and he’s going to really struggle here. Look for the Phillies to run up the score and that is going to be the difference as Philadelphia gets the job done.
