The Rockies’ bats dried up in Atlanta with only 5 runs in the 3 game series. The schedule maker hasn’t been kind as of late with 3 consecutive series against top 10 pitching teams. Tonight they will face Philadelphia starter Kyle Kendricks who historically Colorado’s lineup has hit for a high average. The Phillies hitters were on a mini tear with 34 runs in 5 games before taking on the Dodgers with Beckett and Kershaw. Tonight may not be their night to break out as Rockies’ starter Jhoulys Chachin who has owned most of the lineup in the past.
Take the Colorado Rockies +100.
