Astros have been rolling over teams as of late as they are winners of eight straight and are looking to make it nine as they travel to Denver.
Yuli Gurriel leads the team in home runs with five, but the Astros haven’t had one superstar step up as of late. Houston has strung together a lot of team wins over the last two weeks and will try to continue that momentum on the road after starting 0-6 there.
Frambar Valdez will make his fourth major league start and look to get back to a .500 record. Valdez is 1-2 on the season with a 1.26 ERA to begin 2020. He was meant to be a bullpen guy for the Stros, but due to injuries, he has had to step up and start games for Houston.
The Rockies are now losers in four out of their last five games and fall to second place in the division five games behind the Dodgers for first place. Colorado started out with an MLB best record of 10-2 and have fallen back down to Earth since as they are 13-10 coming into Wednesday.
Charlie Blackmon has cooled off after the video game numbers that he was put up. Blackmon was hitting .500 through his team’s first 20 games. Nolan Arenado has been quiet so far this year and should look to some damage at home as he really struggled on the road last season.
Rookie right-hander Ryan Castellini will be making his third start for the Rocks in search of his first win of the season. Castellini has made two starts but took a no-decision in those games. He has an 0-0 record with a 1.16 ERA to begin his career.

Free Houston Astros vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
Houston has really struggled on the road this season and actually has yet to get a win when away from Minute Maid Park. I know you should probably back them here, but they are winners of 8 in a row, and in baseball, it’s hard to keep a winning streak going. I love the Rockies here to shut down the Stros and get their rook his first win in his career.
