The Colorado Rockies are 16-23 this season and they have won four of their last six games. Prior to losing Game 1 in this series, Colorado won two out of three games against the Pirates. The Colorado pitching staff has a 4.74 ERA, a 1.41 WHIP, and a .259 opponent batting average.

Trends

Philadelphia is 5-2 in their last 7 game two’s of a series and 1-4 in their last 5 road games. The over is 5-3-1 in Philadelphia’s last 9 games. Colorado is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 8-3 in their last 11 games. The over is 6-2 in Colorado’s last 8 Saturday games. The Phillies are 9-1 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.

Pick

Both of these teams have played well recently, but Philadelphia is red hot and is looking for their fifth win in a row. These two teams have very similar hitting and pitching numbers, but the Phillies have pitched very well over the last four games. Philadelphia will have Ranger Suarez on the mound, who will be making his first appearance of the year. Colorado will start Ryan Feltner, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts. I like the under in this game. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
