Braves Loving Coors Field

The Braves bats had to be excited about coming to Coors Field and so far it’s been good. In game 1 of this series the Braves offense scored 14 runs on the way to the 10 run victory. Ronald Acuna Jr had quite the game finishing with four hits, four runs, and five RBIs. He also hit a home run. In Game 2 it was the pitching that was good only giving up a run.  The Braves are averaging 4.85 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.09 runs per game. The offense is ranked 1st in the league while the pitching is ranked 5th. Matt Olson has hit 43 home runs and driven in 112 RBIs. 

Will Kyle Freeland be Good?

On the mound for the Rockies will be Kyle Freeland who sits with a 5-13 record and an ERA of 5.00. In his last start against the Orioles on the road he went six innings giving up eight hits and three runs. He has given up at least three runs in each of his last six starts. The Rockies need Freeland to be lights out in this start. The Rockies are averaging 4.4 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.85 runs per game. The offense is ranked 19th in the league while the pithcing is ranked 29th. Ryan McMahon has hit 22 home runs and driven in 67 RBIs. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Rockies aren’t going to get the good Freeland here, and the Braves are going to have no issue running up the score here. The Braves scored 14 runs in the first game and they are going to have no issue running up the score again in this game. Look for Atlanta to score at least 12 runs here, and the Rockies won’t be keeping up. Back the Braves on the run line to cash here
