Philadelphia is still the worst team in the majors. Currently sitting at 26 games under .500, 23.5 games back of the NL East leading Nationals and 16-38 on the road this season.
The Phillies traded away arguably their best bat in Howie Kendricks at the trade deadline and dealt ace Jeremy Hellickson to the Orioles.
Vince Velasquez (2-6, 4.91 ERA) starts for the Phillies tonight. Velasquez has had a bad year on a bad team. Although, he did have a strong start against the Rockies on May 25th.
He pitched five strong innings, allowing eight hits, one run, one walk and seven strikeouts. He got a no decision, but the Phillies got the win, 2-1.
Colorado is staying poised and winning as needed in order to stay in the NL wildcard discussion. Currently in the second wildcard spot.
The Rockies sit a half game back of NL West division foe Arizona, for the first wildcard spot.
Either way, the Rockies are looking at a playoff birth this season. Colorado won a close game yesterday with the Mets, 5-4 on a walk off walk.
With strong pitching from a young core for the Rockies this season,Kyle Freeland (11-7, 3.71 ERA) starts tonight for Colorado. Freeland has had an up and down year, and currently finds himself pitching solid over his last five starts.
He has pitched 27.2 innings, allowing 24 hits, 11 runs (10 earned), four home runs, eight walks and 21 strikeouts combine in those five outings. His record is 3-1 with a 3.25 ERA since July 4th.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
Coors Field is a hard park to pitch in. Despite his most recent struggles, Jon Gray carries a 2-0 record with a 3.71 ERA in three home starts this season. Vince Velasquez is 0-2 with a 4.08 ERA in six road starts. Take the Rockies at home.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
Anything can happen as far as runs are concerned in Denver. With a combined run total of 11.5 runs, take the under in this game. I expect runs to be scored, but not anything above 11 combined runs.
