Colorado has found playing the other top teams in the NL West to be a rocky experience this week. The Rockies will try and salvage their pride on Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium and those betting baseball wonder if they can.
Colorado was 1-4 since Tuesday taking on Arizona and Los Angeles. Will the Rocks have what it takes to hold cool off a Dodgers squad that has been almost as hot as Buffalo Wild Wings “Blazin'” sauce?
The answer to this question in the details for MLB picks.
Colorado hitters picked the wrong week to stop hitting. In reviewing the numbers, the issue this week has been facing a plethora of hurlers known for creating swings and misses and the Rockies batters have fallen victim. To get after McCarthy, the Rocks lineup has to be willing to pull the hands in and attempt to drive the low pitches up the middle or the other way and look for mistakes.
Manager Dave Roberts has Yasiel Puig batting eighth. When you consider Puig is second for Los Angeles in home runs and runs batted in, that says a lot about what gear your offense is in and is why they have averaged 6.9 RPG in winning 15 of 16.
