Colorado Rockies vs Minnesota Twins Prediction

I’ll lean toward trying the Rockies but I’m probably not touching this one. Hudson is coming off four earned runs in 4.1 innings during a no-decision versus the Reds on June 5. Prior to that Hudson had three earned over 13.0 innings, though. As for Paddack, he’s given up 11 earned runs in 9.2 innings over his last two starts.

On Sunday the Rockies had a pretty bad offensive showing with five team hits and a lone run in the ninth inning. Overall the bullpen wasn’t too bad but Colorado needs a better showing on both sides Monday.
