Montas put in a forgettable outing in his last start, but he walked away with a no-decision as Oakland would go on to take down the Texas Rangers 13-10. He went five innings giving up five hits, three earned runs, and one home run while he struck out three and walked two.
In 53.1 innings of work this season, Montas owns a low strikeout rate (5.57 K/9), a solid walk rate (2.87 BB/9), a very solid home run rate (0.51 HR/9), and has been mediocre stranding base runners (72.4% LOB%). The end-result is a solid 3.54 ERA and a slightly higher 3.72 FIP.
Oakland continues to play winning baseball as they’ve won six of their last seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .287/.389/.548 to go with 34 extra-base hits and 49 RBI.
After putting in three quality starts in a row, Marquez was roughed up by the Arizona Diamondbacks, but he walked away with a no-decision as Colorado ended up winning 11-10. He went five innings giving up eight hits and five earned runs while he struck out six and walked three.
In 108.0 innings of work this season, Marquez owns a solid strikeout (9.33 K/9) to walk rate (3.33 BB/9), but he has struggled some limiting the long ball (1.42 HR/9) and stranding base runners (69.3% LOB%). The end-result is a high 5.00 ERA, but he owns a more respectable 4.36 FIP.
Colorado has managed to play winning baseball in the past week winning three of their five contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .213/.284/.394 to go with 17 extra-base hits and 14 RBI.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction: Colorado takes down Oakland at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rockies -128
Montas does own a solid 3.14 ERA on the road, but he is about to experience the high altitudes of Denver, so I expect Colorado to knock him around a bit since he doesn’t overpower with swing-and-miss stuff. Marquez may give up runs here and there, but I just expect Colorado to out score Oakland in this one.
