The Rockies and Orioles open up their interleague series in Baltimore as both powerful offenses look to put plenty of runs on the scoreboard.
The Rockies are trying their hardest to stay alive in the National League Wild Card race, but they’re going to need a strong push if they want to make it a reality.
It hasn’t been the offense that’s plagued Colorado this year, it’s been the abysmal pitching. The Rockies have a team ERA of 5.01 which ranks 29th in the majors.
On the other hand, their 5.1 runs per game rank second in the majors, so you can see where the contrasts really are.
Jorge De La Rosa will toe the slab for the Rockies as he looks to tame his horrendous 6.07 ERA against one of the best lineups in the game.
De La Rosa was especially roughed up in his last start where he was shelled for seven earned runs in just four innings of work against the lowly Tampa Bay Rays.
Opposing batters are hitting him for a .320 average on the road, so this could be a very long (or short) night for the struggling De La Rosa.
Led by the big bats of Mark Trumbo, Chris Davis and Manny Machado, the Orioles continue to hold a lead over the Boston Red Sox in the AL East. Baltimore ranks fifth in runs, second in slugging and first in home runs.
The pitching has been so-so with Chris Tillman being the only legitimate starting pitcher they have.
Yovani Gallardo will take the mound against the Rockies and he’ll need to cut down on the walks if the Orioles want to come out of this one victorious. Gallardo, who comes in with a 3-2 record and a 5.69 ERA, has 12 walks over his last three starts.
He can’t do that against Colorado and its second-ranked offense.
He has a 1.62 WHIP at home this year, a mark that he needs to improve on if the Orioles want to make a deep run in the playoffs.
