Colorado enters tonight’s interleague contest vs. AL West leader Houston after upending San Francisco 6-2 Sunday night. The Rockies trail the final NL Wildcard spot by 6.5 games after winning a recent series 2-1 vs. the Giants. Overall, behind MLB’s #6 offense (5.34 RPG) Colorado is 3-3 since an upset July 29 win over the Dodgers.
However, sporting the league’s next-to-last ERA (5.41) Colorado enters Minute Maid Park as a prohibitive underdog. Aside from Houston’s talent advantage, the Astros are 41-15 at home this season -the second best mark in MLB, behind LAD, though the Rockies upset Los Angeles in Colorado.
Workhorse German Marquez, NL leader for innings pitched (150), is tentatively slated to open tonight for the Rockies. All those innings caught up with Marquez (10-5, 4.68 ERA) as he exited his last appearance after six scoreless innings vs. LAD complaining of full body cramps. With their ace sidelined, Colorado’s bullpen stumbled while losing 5-1 vs. the Dodgers.
Marquez has consistently ranked among the league’s best pitchers this season and it will greatly aid the Rockies’ cause if he is ready tonight.
Colorado is 15-9 this season when Marquez starts.
Houston opens its doors for tonight’s Colorado encounter as the hottest team in baseball. The Astros have become virtually unbeatable of late, compiling a 14-3 record since July 17 while winning four straight. Led by an explosive offense and fortified pitching staff, the Stro’s have outscored their opponents 39-4 in that unbeaten run.
After headlining last week’s trade deadline, Zack Greinke makes his first start as an Astro tonight. Greinke (10-4, 2.90 ERA) joins Houston for the club’s stretch run push for a world title. And with their new 2019 All Star in tow, it appears inevitable the Astros and Yankees will clash in a highly anticipated ALCS this Autumn.
As mentioned, Houston is on a season-defining run after stocking its coffers for an all-or-nothing championship bid.
Tonight’s opponent has spoiler value, but the Astros are hard to bet against when clicking on all cylinders.
