The Colorado Rockies are on the road as they play the first game of a four-game set against the Houston Astros on Monday night.
Colorado was off to a hot start to the year but they’ve cooled off as of late with five losses in their last six games, including three straight against the Rangers at home.
The Rockies entered Sunday second in the NL West, just two games behind the Dodgers in the NL West.
Kyle Freeland is on the rubber for his fifth start of the season for the Rockies. Freeland is 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA, he has given up seven walks and has 13 strikeouts over 25.2 innings of work on the year.
Houston captured their third straight victory after dropping six of seven as they walked off on the Mariners Saturday night thanks to a Kyle Tucker home run.
The Astros enter Monday’s action third in the AL West, 4.5 games behind the A’s for the lead in the division. Yuli Gurriel had a nice game on Sunday getting his fifth dinger of the year off Seattle.
Brandon Bielak is on the hill for his fifth appearance and third start of his rookie season here for the Astros. Bielak is 2-0 with a 1.76 ERA, he has given up seven walks and has 11 strikeouts over 15.1 innings of work this season.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
Kyle Freeland doesn’t get the respect he should get as a potential ace for this Rockies staff. He came in fourth in the Cy Young voting in 2018 but had an awful 2019. 2020 has been good to him so far and I think he rides this momentum into a win in Houston. Give me the Rocks to get the win on Monday night.
