On Thursday, the Milwaukee Brewers will visit Coors Field to take on the Colorado Rockies for the first game of a four game set.
These clubs have not met this year yet. Due to the coronavirus, they have not met since the 2019 season.
Brandon Woodruff will take the mound for the Brewers and German Marquez will go for the Rockies.
The Brewers have been playing some good baseball this year, despite losing their last two to the Reds.
The Brewers are tied for first place in the National League Central with the Cubs. They have a record of 38-29.
They got crushed 10-2 in game one against the Reds and then lost in extra innings 2-1 on Tuesday. Game three is being played as I write this article.
On Tuesday, lefty Brett Anderson fired seven innings, not allowing an earned run while striking out nine people.
Brandon Woodruff has been the ace of this staff. He has a record of 5-2 and a miniscule ERA of 1.52.
This Milwaukee pitching staff has been impressive this year. Some other key arms include Freddy Peralta and Corbin Burnes. The Brewers rank 9th in baseball with a 3.62 ERA.
This club is not quite as strong when it comes to offense. They are scoring exactly 4 runs a game which is 21st in the league. Star Christian Yelich has been hurt for a good part of the year, but is back playing now.
The Brewers have hit 80 home runs which is 14th across baseball.
Unlike the Brewers, the Rockies have been having a rough season all year long.
They are in fourth place in the National League West with a record of 27-41, 15.5 games behind the Giants.
The Rockies have beaten the Padres in the first two games of the series. In those games, they got good starts from Austin Gomber and Chi Chi Gonzalez. Before that series, they got swept in three games against the Reds.
German Marquez has a record of 4-6 and a 4.60 ERA.
Much of their struggles this year can be attributed to their poor pitching. They have a 4.97 ERA which is 27th in baseball.
Their offense has been good this year. They are scoring 4.26 runs per game which is 15th best.
Hitting home runs is not a big part of what this team does. They are second to last with only 59 home runs.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
This is a matchup between two teams that are going in opposite directions.
While German Marquez is a good pitcher, Brandon Woodruff has pitched like a true ace this year. For this reason, I feel confident the Brewers will get the win.
I do not see this being a very high scoring game.
I like this to go under the total of 8.5 runs.
