Colorado Rockies Betting Preview

The Rockies performed excellent in their latest battle, securing a 6-5 triumph over the Cardinals. Ezequiel Tovar performed impressively, hitting two home runs and pushing four RBIs. Ryan Feltner also stood out while he pitched for 5.1 innings and gave up just two hits with no runs.

They are averaging 4.11 runs each game while giving up 4.54 runs in return. They are ranked 21st in the league offensively, but their pitching is way too far behind, at 30th. As you can see, their run differential is -1.53, which puts them 29th overall.

With a 2-1 series lead, they promise to land another one. Ty Blach (2-3) will get the start for the Rockies with a 4.54 ERA. In his previous battle against the Reds, he pitched five innings and gave up 10 hits and four runs total.

St. Louis Cardinals Betting Preview

The Cardinals have faced adversity many times this season and are dealing with another tough loss in their latest defeat. Despot is a close game, so they must find ways to limit opponents from scoring so many runs. Kyle Gibson did not have a great start on the mound, as he pitched for six innings, gave up eight hits, and allowed three runs.

The Cardinals are scoring 3.95 runs per game, while their pitching is allowing 4.65 runs per game. Their offense ranks 23rd in the league, while their pitching ranks 21st. This has to improve if they want to beat even the worst teams in the league.

Nolan Gorman has hit 14 home runs and 32 RBIs this season. However, the key in defending will rest with whoever starts on the mound. Their team ERA comes in at 4.13, which is better than the Rockies'.

In other words, the Cardinals need strong pitching in this game. If their offense struggles, they must have something to fall back on.
