As the Texas Rangers look to extend their lead in the AL West, the Colorado Rockies try to cling to their playoff hopes.
The Rockies continue to hang around the National League Wild Card picture despite being under .500.
Led by the hot bats of Carlos Gonzalez, Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado, Colorado continues to score runs with the best teams in the majors. The Rockies rank 2nd in runs, slugging percentage and OPS as well as 3rd in average and OBP.
It hasn’t been the offense that’s held Colorado back. No, that’s been the tumultuous pitching staff, including Wednesday’s starter Jorge De La Rosa.
The veteran De La Rosa enters this game with a 7-7 record and a 5.24 ERA.
Although he’s been surprisingly efficient by allowing just four earned runs in his last three starts, opposing batters are still hitting nearly .300 when De La Rosa pitches on the road.
With the exception of Cole Hamels, the Rangers have been plagued by an anemic pitching staff all year long.
Luckily, the Rangers pitching has been much more efficient over the last two weeks.
Texas has only allowed nine runs over their last four home games, a span where the team has gone 4-0 overall.
The Rangers are still top-10 in nearly every offensive category, and they’ll have to keep that going if they want to make a deep postseason run.
The Rangers will send the southpaw Martin Perez to the mound as he looks to break his recent struggles.
Perez was rocked for five earned in his previous start against the Houston Astros and has allowed at least five earned runs in four of his last six starts.
He comes into this game with a 7-8 record and a 4.33 ERA.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The Rockies are 27-29 on the road.
- The Rockies are 2-5 in De La Rosa’s last seven starts.
- The Rangers are 34-17 at home.
- The Rangers are 4-0 in their last four home games.
- The Rangers are 2-4 in Perez’s last six starts.
Free Colorado Rockies vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
Both of these teams are great offensively, especially against left-handed pitchers. The Rangers are hitting a big-league best .281 against southpaws, while the Rockies’ .266 mark ranks ninth.
Neither pitcher has pitched particularly well this year, so this one should be a run-scoring affair.
I think the Rangers will win because they’ve been so dominant at home.
