The Phillies will send Aaron Nola to the mound for game three of this weekend four game series. The Rockies got the better of the Phillies in game one, but game two was not completed by the time of this article. Nola has struggled so far this year, having a very hard time locating his pitches and finding the strike zone. He comes in with a 1-0 record with an inflated 7.45 ERA and 19 strikeouts on the year.
Philadelphia is clinging to one game lead in the NL East heading into the weekend, with the Mets right on their heels. They’ve cooled a bit after their hot start, and are now just 5-5 in their last 10 games. They come into this one averaging 5.77 runs per game while giving up an average of 5.05 runs per game.
The Rockies will turn to Antonio Senzatela in game three as they continue to try to climb out of the basement of the NL West. Senzatela was superb in his season debut against San Diego, pretty much shutting the Padres down for 6 and 2/3 innings en route to his first win on the year.
Heading into the weekend the Rockies trailed the Giants by only half a game, so another win here on Saturday would be big for this ball club who has underachieved from the get go. Colorado has put up some good numbers of late, and are now averaging a more respectable 3.42 runs per game, while their pitching is still giving up a lopsided 4.42 runs per game.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
Aaron Nola needs to find his confidence once again if he is going to live up to the tab of Ace of the Staff. This team has some good teams right on their tails, and another loss to a last place team won’t get it done in the long run.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Philadelphia -118
Take the Phillies to pick up the win on the road and salvage this series. Colorado is playing better, but they still aren’t quite there yet, and Nola was a finalist for the Cy Young last year, so he should know how to dig himself out of this rut he’s in.
