The Rockies come into Boston struggling as of late, they have lost 4 of their last 5 after putting together a 4 game winning streak. They are currently .500 at 21-21 and can’t seem to break out.
The Red Sox are 27-17 and have played well at home all season, they are 16-9 at Fenway.
De La Rosa goes for the Rockies with a 10.18 era and is 1-3. Price is 6-1 with a 5.53 era.
This squad can definitely put up a lot of runs and seems to get them in bunches. They average 5 per game and are 4th in the MLB, making them always very dangerous.
They rank 3rd in slugging percentage at .450 and 7th in OBP at .330. They also rank 3rd in team batting average at .273.
The challenge for this team, however, has been keeping runs off the board. They also allow 5 runs per game which puts them 26th in the MLB.
With De La Rosa going, his atrocious 10.18 era will make this one difficult for the Rockies to muster up a victory.
He’s allowed 8 runs in his last 2 games lasting just 2 and 3 innings.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox have been incredible this season after struggling last season. They have averaged a league best 5.8 runs per game and also leads the league in batting average at .296!
They also lead the league in OBP and slugging percentage.
They’ve put up 53 long balls which ranks them 9th. They are an offensive juggernaut and odds are they light up De La Rosa and take him out of the game real early.
Price has not pitched as well as everyone would have expect so far this season but he’s still putting up w’s. He’s 6-1 with an 5.53 era but his last 2 outings have been impressive.
He’s allowed just 3 runs in 14 innings and seems to have found his groove. It’ll be a good test against the Rockies powerful offence.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
The Red Sox offence will be too much for De La Rosa’s horrid 10.18 era, the Rockies may muster up some runs against an inconsistent Price but Price seems dialed in at this point. Logic says Red Sox take this one.
