Colorado Rockies vs Oakland Athletics Prediction

I want nothing to do with the Rockies and Athletics, and a pitching matchup of Ryan Feltner and Joey Estes doesn't make things any better. Both Feltner and Estes have been awful this season and are no strangers to giving up a boatload of runs. Feltner has an ERA well over 5 on the season and an ERA well over 6 on the road. Estes has an ERA of 9 on the season and an ERA of 8 for his brief career. So, I'll take my chances with the over if forced to pick game 3 between the Rockies and Athletics. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
