The Chicago Cubs and Colorado Rockies face off on Monday in an MLB showdown at Coors Field
Cubs Finally Pick up a Win
The Cubs really struggled against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the first three games but on Sunday they were able to secure the victory. The Cubs pitching only gave up two runs and that enough for the victory. The Cubs are averaging 5.04 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.37 runs per game. The offense is ranked 7th in the league while the pitching is ranked 13th. On the mound for the Cubs will be Jordan Wicks who sits with a 3-0 record and an ERA of 2.15.
Rockies Need Pitching to Be Better
It has been an awful season for the Rockies and now they are coming off a Sunday night baseball game against the San Francisco Giants. In the first two games of the series the pitching gave up 18 runs total. The Rockies are averaging 4.39 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.95 runs per game. The offense is ranked 19th in the league while the pitching is ranked 30th.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Rockies pitching has been a big problem and I expect they are going to struggle again in a big way here. Wicks gets the start for the Rockies and he has really been lights out. Even at Coors Field, I expect he’s going to have a strong start here and that is going to be the difference here as the Cubs are going to get the job done here. Back the Cubs on the run line to cash here.
