Free MLB Pick
The Rockies have lost their last 2 games with Jorge De La Rosa on the hill, but his offense has failed him as in those starts he gave up a combined 2 earned runs and did not give up any in his last outing. In mid July he was on the hill when Colorado beat Atlanta 3-2 and in the game he gave up 2 earned runs in 6 innings of work. The Rockies are 2-5 in De La Rosa’s last 7 starts. The Braves had won 3 straight games with Julio Teheran on the hill before losing their last one with him getting the starting nod even though he only gave up 1 earned run in 6 innings. The Braves are 5-1 in Teheran’s last 6 home starts.
The Braves are reeling, but back at home and with Teheran they will get the win and snap their losing streak.
