The Rockies have to be happy after last night’s 10-5 win over the Diamondbacks where they shelled Arizona’s Zach Greinke hitting 3 HR off him. In the game Colorado’s Trevor Story became the first player in MLB history to hit 2 HR in on opening day in his Major League debut.
Last season the Rockies were only 2-8 facing the Diamondbacks in Arizona, but are already 1-0 this season.
In the win over the Diamondbacks yesterday the Rockies scored 10 runs on 15 hits and they scored 6 runs in the 3rd inning.
Overall, the Rockies have only won 2 of their last 7 games facing the Diamondbacks and they are the betting underdog tonight just like they were last night.
Chad Bettis goes for the Rockies tonight and he was one of the few bright spots for the Rockies last season with a solid 8-6 record with an ERA of 4.23 in 20 starts. In his first 2 seasons with Colorado he was mainly a reliever.
Arizona is already 0-1 this season and Colorado is 4-1 in their last 5 games facing a team with a winning record with Bettis on the hill.
Bettis faced Arizona twice last season with each team winning once. He got his last start of the season against them going 6 innings and giving up 1 earned run in a 3-1 loss.
Well, after All Star Greinke got shelled yesterday the Diamondbacks now send out their other off-season All Star acquisition in Shelby Miller.
Last season with the Braves he received the lowest run support in the Majors and went 6-17, but had a solid ERA of 3.02.
Miller has one career start at Arizona and that was last season when he only lasted 4 innings and gave up 4 earned runs.
The Arizona offense was the strength of the team last season led by slugger Paul Goldschmidt and while they had 12 hits and scored 5 runs in the loss yesterday to the Rockies they also left 10 men on base.
It is only 1 game, but things are not looking good already for the Diamondbacks, as Greinke was shelled last night and their All Star Gold Glove CF A.J. Pollock may be lost for the season with an elbow injury.
