Two NL West Division rivals will square off when the Arizona Diamondbacks travel to Denver, Colorado, to face the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. The first pitch is scheduled for 3:10 PM ET on Wednesday afternoon and will air on DBTV and ESPN+.

Arizona Diamondbacks Team Preview

The Arizona Diamondbacks won the NL Pennant last season before losing to the Texas Rangers in the World Series. It looked like they had carried the momentum into this season after winning their first series of the season with a 3-1 series win at home against the Colorado Rockies. In those matchups, the Diamondbacks outscored the Rockies by an average of 8 to 3.5 runs per game. 

However, since the season-opening series win, the Diamondbacks have compiled a record of 2-6 and have seen their pitching staff go from allowing 3.5 runs per game through their first four games to allowing an average of 4.75 runs per game. However, their bats remain hot, averaging 5.5 runs per game. 

Arizona ended its five-game losing streak with a 3-2 road win against the Colorado Rockies in Game 2 of the series. It will look to win a series for the second time against the Colorado Rockies this season when it travels to face them in Game 3.

Colorado Rockies Team Preview

Not much is expected from the Colorado Rockies this season, as they entered the season with an over/under win total of 60.5 games.
