Pitching Matchup in Denver

Zac Gallen will get the start for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Gallen has been the ace of the staff for a couple seasons now. The righthander has been excellent to start the season. In wins over the Rockies and Yankees, he has thrown 11 innings, and allowed just a single run. Gallen has 9 strikeouts in those two starts.

For the Colorado Rockies, it has been the exact opposite. Kyle Freeland gets the start, and he has been horrendous so far for Colorado. Freeland is 0-2 on the season, and has thrown just 5.2 innings. During those innings, he has allowed 17 earned runs, and walked four batters.

Bats to Watch

The Colorado Rockies have been horrendous on the pitching front. In 10 games, the Rockies have allowed a total of 76 runs. But, when they get to the plate, they have some guys that have had some success. Ryan McMahon has smoked two home runs and drove in 7 on the season. The Rockies also see their third baseman with a team high of .389 batting average.

The Diamondbacks are looking to win their first road game of the season. The Diamondbacks were outscored by Atlanta 20-15 over the weekend. The offense has not been bad for Arizona, as Ketel Marte is hitting .333, with 3 home runs and Lourdes Gurriel Jr has 3 home runs and 11 runs batted in. Arizona is hitting .285 as a team, and have scored 59 runs.

What’s Next?

The Arizona Diamondbacks will play these three in Denver, and then head home and host the Cardinals over the weekend, and welcome the Cubs to town for three next week. For the Rockies, after Arizona leaves town on Wednesday, they will take Thursday off before a weekend series in Toronto.

Arizona Blasts Colorado

This is not going to be a competitive baseball game. The Arizona Diamondbacks are going to go to Denver and beat the brakes off the Colorado Rockies. Something is not right with Kyle Freeland. The Arizona bats are going to come to play in this one. When we make our final bets, we are going to take the Diamondbacks on the run line. The Diamondbacks win by several runs. Take Arizona -1.5 at +150 over Colorado. Our final score prediction is Arizona 10-4 over Colorado.
