Shane’s Free Pick
Kyle Freeland is on the mound, and that is going to spell good news for the Rockies. Nola has been fine, but he hasn’t been as dominant this year and Coors Field is going to really hurt him here. The Rockies are going to score seven or eight runs total, and Colorado is going to get the job done. Back the Rockies.
