The Pittsburgh Pirates recently embarrassed the Colorado Rockies at home. One of the few players for Colorado to have a successful series was Ryan McMahon. In three games, he had three doubles and six hits. Kris Bryant hit two home runs and went 4-10 in the series. His first two home runs in Coors Field came while playing for the Rockies.
It is up to the lineup to get things rolling because the Rockies have trouble on the mound. This season, Colorado has a.261 average versus left-handed pitchers. When facing a left-handed pitcher, five Rockies batters are batting over.290. Those five batters are going to be crucial in igniting the offense and relieving the pitchers of some of the burden.
For the Phillies, Matt Strahm will start, but he has not had a strong outing thus far. Only once has he gone five innings. The Rockies will have a chance to make Philadelphia use their bullpen for a good portion of the game. In the end, they will be able to get a win if they can remove Strahm from the game early.
In their most recent series, the Phillies defeated the Chicago White Sox twice out of three times. In the three games, Nick Castellanos, Brandon Marsh, and Bryson Stott each had four hits. Marsh increased his total with a home run. For the Phillies, Trea Turner and Josh Harrison both hit home runs. Taijuan Walker and Zach Wheeler both won for Philadelphia.
