The Philadelphia Phillies are set to take on the Colorado Rockies in game three of their ongoing series and comes less than 24 hours after the two teams have already done battle on the baseball diamond. Whether this will lead to fatigue setting in for the two organizations remains to be seen, but one would have to imagine conditioning become a huge factor.
With that being said and Chase Anderson of the Phillies set to do battle with Jon Gray of the Colorado Rockies, there’s a lot of interesting questions to answer when it comes to who to bet on. Furthermore, their record and statistics are so similar that it is somewhat difficult to locate a difference.
The Philadelphia Phillies are 2-3 in their last ten games and are 3-7 in their last ten matchups. They are coming into this game with right-handed pitcher Chase Anderson, who is 2-2 with a 6.6 ERA. Another big asterisk on his record is the fact that he has been pulled after five innings in all of his starts with the organization this season, making him a very easy target for the Rockies.
The Phillies will be anchored by Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins, who both have 14 home runs this season and combine for 39 hits this season. Unfortunately for the Phillies, they will need help from their supporting cast of Alec Bohm, and J.T Realmuto, who will need to help the team put points on the board.
If nothing else, the Phillies have all the right pieces in place to win this game, it’s just a matter of whether they are able to put it all together or not. They will also have to overcome the shortcomings of a less-than-stellar pitcher, who is notorious for getting relieved after bad plays.
As for the Colorado Rockies, they are 4-1 in their last 5 games and 3-7 in their last ten games. Despite that ten-game slide, the organization has outscored their opponents 27-13 in the last five games, making them a hard offense to contain.
This scoring effort was led by Garret Hampson, who has levied 3 runs, 4 hits, and 1 run batted in after four games. He was backed up by CJ Cron, who has managed 2 runs, 4 hits, and 6 runs batted in during the same period of time.
Finally, the pitching forecast will see Jon Gray take the mound for the Rockies, and that’s going to be bad news for the Phillies. Not only is that evident by him being undefeated in 2 starts this season, but also by his 1.47 ERA
As if that wasn’t impossible enough of a challenge, Gray has also held opponents to 1 or fewer runs in his two starts and only 4 or fewer hits during that period as well. If nothing else, Gray seems to be the unbreakable wall that will ultimately be the Phillies’ downfall.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Phillies are 1-6 in their last 7 games as an underdog.
- Phillies are 1-8 in the last 9 meetings in Colorado
