In the first of a three-game set, the Arizona Diamondbacks will visit Coors Field to take on the Colorado Rockies. The Diamondbacks are now up 6-1 on the season against the Rockies. Since the trade deadline, they have struggled mightily, falling to.500 and 2.5 games short of a wild card place.
As a team, they have a.288 batting average with 28 RBIs. Christian Walker has 10 hits and two home runs to lead the club. Additionally, Ketel Marte has two home runs. When pitching against the Rockies, the Diamondbacks have a 3.92 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 8.3 K/9. The Diamondbacks’ starting pitchers have been solid three times in seven games.
This year, Merill Kelly has been quite productive. His earned run average is 3.05, his WHIP is 1.17, and his opponents are hitting.219 against him. Kelly has allowed just two runs over 12 innings pitched in two starts this month, while striking out eleven batters. The Minnesota Twins and the Los Angeles Dodgers are two quality clubs that he faced in those starts. Since coming back from his injury, Kelly has been outstanding.
So far this season, the Rockies have hit.269 versus the Diamondbacks. Four of Colorado’s seven games have resulted in home homers. Both Ryan McMahon and Ezequiel Tovar homered for the Rockies, giving them a total of 10 hits. Each of them also has a set of triplets.
The Rockies will be shorthanded at the plate without C.J. Cron and Randal Grichuk, who both played against the Diamondbacks. With only 42 strikeouts in 59 2/3 innings pitched, the Rockies’ pitching staff is surrendering nearly seven earned runs per game.
If the Rockies want to win, they’ll need to get on the board. Since Flexen has been struggling this year, he will likely allow some runs. Colorado must score some runs if they want to win. The Rockies have been doing well at the plate against the Diamondbacks, as was previously reported. McMahon is going to be a huge factor in this contest.
