Rockies vs Phillies Prediction

The Rockies bats haven’t been great this season, and it’s not going to get any easier against Suarez. Suarez sits with an ERA of 2.65, and he’s going to lockdown here. Austin Gomber hasn’t been awful, and the Phillies' offense is ranked 26th. Both of these teams are going to really struggle to score here, and that will be the difference here, as this game is going to stay under the total.
