This NL matchup includes two teams that are well out of playoff contention.
The Colorado Rockies lineup has been solid, but losing rookie Trevor Story will hurt them for the rest of the season.
The Philadelphia Phillies are luck to be in the same division as the Braves just so they’re not completely in the basement.
The Colorado Rockies are one of the best in the National League. They are led by DJ Lahmieu with a .327 average to go with 23 doubles and 76 RBIs.
Carlos Gonzalez is hitting .321 with 53 extra base hits and 52 runs batted in. Nolan Arenado is leading the National League in home runs and RBIs.
Arenado has 30 home runs to go along with 91 runs batted in while he is hitting .286 on the season. Look for the Rockies to give Thompson a rough second start out for the Phil’s
The Rockies have the young Jon Gray on the bump Friday night. Gray is currently 8-5 on the season with a 4.26 E.R.A. and 123 strikeouts.
He went down in defeat in his last start against the Miami Marlins in embarrassing fashion. Gray made it 3.2 innings where he gave up 8 earned runs on 10 hits.
Gray also walked 1 batter and struck out 3 in the bad loss. He looks to bounce back in his start against the Phillies.
The Phillies lineup has been predominately bad for most of the season. They’re led by Cesar Hernandez on the season.
Hernandez is hitting .285 on the season to go with 21 extra base hits and 27 RBIs. Odeubel Herrera is hitting .284 with 12 dingers and 39 RBIs.
Maikel Franco is leading the Phillies in home runs and RBIs with 20 and 66 respectively; he also has an average of .250. The Phillies look to give Gray another bad outing on Friday.
The Phillies have Jake Thompson taking the mound for his 2nd start with the Phillies.
He is currently 0-1 on the season with a 12.46 E.R.A.
He got knocked around in his first start with the team. He pitched in 4.1 innings of work where he gave up 6 earned runs on 7 hits.
Thompson also struck out 1 batter and walked 2 batters. He looks to comeback with a better second start.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
This game includes two teams that are out of playoff contention but the two levels of the teams are not close. I’m taking the Colorado Rockies in this matchup on Friday.
Look for the Rockies lineup to torch Thompson in this one and he won’t make it in the game very long. Jon Gray will make a nice comeback from his last start against this below average lineup.
