Colorado Rockies Recap

The Colorado Rockies come into this one looking to bounce back after a rough series against the Houston Astros, being swept in Mexico City after an 8-2 loss in Sunday’s series finale which followed Colorado’s series split with the Padres to start the week. Colorado was tied through two innings, but Houston broke the game open for good in the 3rd and 4th innings and coasted to the finish while Colorado struggled to produce at the plate again.

The Miami Marlins come into this series after being swept by the Washington Nationals in their four-game set culminating with a 7-2 loss in Monday’s finale, making it back-to-back sweeps for the Fish after being swept by Atlanta to start the week. Miami trailed for more than half the game before getting on the board in the 6th inning to cut their deficit to 3-2, but Washington added 4 in the 7th to take the lead for good as Miami was held to just four hits in the loss.

Luis Arraez has a team-high 37 hits with 6 doubles while Bryan De La Cruz has 31 hits with 6 doubles of his own as well as a team-high 5 home runs and 14 RBIs, while also owning the dubious distinction of leading Miami with 34 strikeouts this season.

Rockies vs. Marlins Prediction

I’m going to take a shot on the Rockies here. I think what it boils down to is the fact that Miami is 0-10 as a favorite this season and I don’t think they should be laying odds against anyone and if they are, against a team on their level like the Rockies here, I don’t think it should be greater than a coin flip price. The Rockies are far from world-beaters, but I think the value is on them here. Give me Colorado.
