Colorado Rockies ML
The Colorado Rockies host the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday in the opener of a three-game set. Colorado is coming off a 6-4 loss to Cleveland, while Arizona dropped its last game to Cincinnati, 4-3.
The Rockies are happy to come home after a tough time on their recent road trip. They had a day off on Monday to adjust and now look to hit the Diamondbacks hard. The Rockies have one of the best home records in baseball at 16-7, and that comes from having one of the best home field advantages in baseball at Coors Field, with a lineup tailor made to take advantage of its dimensions.
The Rockies send out Jorge de la Rosa for this contest. He had a rough start to his year but has really settled down since. The Rockies have won each of his last six starts. The team is 21-2 in his last 23 starts at Coors Field, and the Diamondbacks are one of his favorite opponents to face off with. In his last 10 starts against Arizona, de la Rosa has compiled a 1.79 ERA and 1.08 WHIP. The Rockies won each of those outings. The Diamondbacks counter with Chase Anderson, whose base numbers are buoyed by some unearned runs. He won’t enjoy pitching at Coors.
The Rockies are 45-11 in de la Rosa’s last 56 starts as a favorite.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
