The Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks will start a 3 game series on Friday night in Arizona. The Rockies and Diamondbacks have already played each other in 9 games in the 2017 season. In those 9 games, the Rockies won 5 games and the Diamondbacks won 4 games. In addition, 6 out of those 9 games played under the posted total.

Rockies Are Road Warriors!

The Colorado Rockies are 47-34 and are 5.5 games back in the National League West Division. The Rockies are 25-19 against teams from the National League West Division. They have a +33 run differential, scoring 410 runs and only allowing 377 runs. The Rockies have actually played better on the road than they have at home this year. They are 22-15 at home while going 25-19 on the road.

The Rockies have fallen into a slump lately going 2-8 in the last 10 games and are currently on a 8 game losing streak. In this 8 game losing streak, the Rockies are only averaging 2.88 runs per game. That is a big difference from their season average of 5.06 runs per game! The Rockies need to get the bats going and put some runs on the board.

Diamondbacks Take Aim On 1st Place In NL West

The Arizona Diamondbacks are 50-30 and are 2 games back in 2nd place in the National League West Division. The Diamondbacks come into this game off a loss at home against the St. Louis Cardinals by the score 10-4.

The Diamondbacks have the second best run differential in the National League. The Diamondbacks have a 108 run differential, scoring 419 runs and only allowing 311 runs. They are 30-12 at home this year and have gone 21-15 against teams from within their division.

Diamondbacks Pound Gray

The Colorado Rockies will go with Jon Gray on the mound on Friday. This will only be Gray’s 4th start of the year and he has yet to factor into a decision. He has only gone 12 total innings and given up 11 hits and 6 earned runs. He is basically giving up 1 earned run every other innings, which isn’t good when facing a Arizona Diamondbacks team that have one of best offenses in the National League. I expect the Diamondbacks to expose the Rockies and extend their losing streak to 9 games. Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks -141 for 3 Units
