Rockies Are Tough Team On The Road
The Colorado Rockies are in fourth place in the National League West Division. They were sitting in first place three weeks ago but have had a complete falling out and have now dropped out of the top spot with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Rockies are now 6.5 games back behind the Diamondbacks and are trying to get back into the battle in the NL West. The Rockies are two games under .500 at 38-40. The Rockies have been a night and day team on the road vs at home. They are 15-22 at home in Coors Field and 23-18 on the road, where this game will be played.
On Tuesday, the Rockies will send Chad Bettis to the mound for his 16th start of the season. Bettis is 5-1 on the year with a 5.23 ERA. Bettis has ironically been very good on the road. He has recorded all of his wins this year, while on the road. Bettis is 5-1 on the road in eight starts on the road this year.
Giants Hitting Well But Can’t Score Runs
The San Francisco Giants are one game above .500 with a 40-39 record. They are five games back behind the Arizona Diamondbacks for the top spot in the National League West Division. The Giants are a unique team in the fact that they are hitting the ball really well, as a matter of fact they are hitting for the best average in the NL West at .255, but the issue is once those guys get on base, they can’t seem to do anything with them. The Giants have only scored 327 runs in 2018, which is the 5th worst in the National League.
On Tuesday Night, the Giants will send Derek Holland to the mound to make his 16th start of the 2018 season. Holland is 5-7 on the year with a 4.48 ERA. Holland pitched well enough to get the win in his last start, going six innings and allowing seven hits and three earned runs against the Miami Marlins. He will now try to capitalize on the momentum and start a little win streak at home.
Rockies Win On The Road
The Colorado Rockies are really tough on the road. I don’t know why, I can’t put my finger on the reason but this team is really strong on the road. I expect they will put together a nice start to this game and take advantage of the matchup with Holland early in the game. I will be playing the Colorado Rockies for 4 units and they will be my Spooky Express Play Of The Day!
