Sanchez pitched in relief versus Washington going three innings giving up zero runs and one hit to go along with three walks and two strikeouts. After that shaky start, he’ll get the nod in Colorado.
Its kind of surprising to see Sanchez get the start as he has been a leaky faucet posting a 5.75 ERA over the last three season. His problem stems from the long ball as he owns a 1.71 HR/9 during that span which is kind of a sick joke to give him his first start in Colorado.
They have been very efficient in their small sample size versus Bettis owning a slash line of .275/.383/.420 in 69 at-bats to go along with seven extra-base hits and six RBI. Their BB/K ratio has been very efficient sitting at 12:8.
Atlanta has had a very productive start slashing .297/.376/.481 in their first six games to go along with 24 extra-base hits, 45 RBI and 48 runs. The 45 RBI and 48 runs are tops in the MLB. It is also very promising to see they’ve struck out only 49 times and garnered 24 walks.
Bettis managed to get the win going five innings where he gave up two runs off of five hits while he walked four and struck out four. It wasn’t a good start and to add insult to injury it was against San Diego.
What makes him a solid pitcher for Colorado is even though giving up home runs in Denver is inevitable, he limits the damage by inducing ground balls and does well not to give up free bases with a BB/9 of 2.49 in his last two seasons.
Their lineup has done well against Sanchez slashing .266/.337/.481 in 154 at-bats smacking 14 extra-base hits and 24 RBI, while owning a BB/K ratio of 15:27.
Colorado’s lineup has been pretty mediocre in their first seven contests slashing .237/.317/.407 while hitting 20 extra-base hits and 30 RBI. Of course the numbers are low due to their first seven games being on the road. Now back at home we should see the numbers start to inflate.
