Colorado sits at 55-70 and will miss the postseason for the first time in three seasons. The main reason is abysmal pitching. The team ranks second last in baseball in runs allowed (743). Guys like Kyle Freeland (6.98 ERA), Antonio Senzatela (6.29 ERA), and Peter Lambert (6.55 ERA) have struggled mightily.
The offense is led by Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story, and Charlie Blackmon. Arenado is hitting .301 with 32 homers and 99 RBIs, Story has 28 homers and 18 stolen bases, and Blackmon is batting .328 with 27 homers. David Dahl has also had a big year with a .302 average and 15 homers.
The Rockies will go with Chi Chi Gonzalez for Saturday night’s contest. Gonzalez is 0-4 with a 5.87 ERA this season. He is coming off his best outing of the season. He allowed two runs in six innings against Arizona.
St Louis Cardinals
The St Louis Cardinals are half a game behind the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central, and currently occupy the second wild card spot. St. Louis is coming off a 6-5 victory against the Rockies in the series opener on Thursday. Marcell Ozuna and Paul DeJong hit their 23rd homers of the season while Dexter Fowler hit one making it his 15th.
Miles Mikolas struggled in the outing allowing five runs in six innings getting the no decision. Carlos Martinez got his 15th save of the year in the win.
On the mound for the St. Louis Cardinals is Dakota Hudson. Hudson has been fantastic for the Cardinals with a 12-6 record and a 3.63 ERA. Over his last two outings he has went 12.2 scoreless innings while allowing only five hits.
