Colorado Rockies have struggled through an unsuccessful season, posting an atrocious 50-86 record and finding it challenging to turn games in their favor on both ends of the spectrum. Statistics reveal their struggles: with 601 runs scored on them this season resulting from 135 homers; an batting average of just 0.249 with 601 runs total; 5.61 earned run average and 1.53 WHIP ratio. It is evident from these numbers that Colorado has struggled to stop runs from scoring, leading them down the path toward their poor record this season.

On the other side of things is Arizona Diamondbacks who have amassed a respectable 70-67 record and are in contention for a playoff berth with an 8-3 SU record at home since moving there last July. Their batting average may have edged out that of Rockies at 0.253 while hitting 151 homers.

Peter Lambert (3-5, 4.95 ERA) vs. Merrill Kelly (10-6, 3.31 ERA)

Lambert will pitch for Colorado Rockies against Arizona Diamondbacks this afternoon, sporting an 4.95 ERA and 1.36 WHIP rating. Over 76.1 innings pitched, Lambert allowed 79 hits and 15 homers, which indicates his lack of control or inability to thwart key plays. What’s more concerning is his ratio of strikeouts to walks: 64 strikeouts to 25 walks isn’t exactly inspiring confidence when facing an opposing lineup with an overall team batting average of.253 with 151 home runs this season – especially given Lambert’s susceptibility in giving up home runs could become significant factor during this game based off of Arizona’s ability.

Diamondbacks fans have put more trust in M. Kelly this season, who has proven more consistent than Lambert on the mound. Kelly boasts a 3.31 ERA and 1.2 WHIP across 141.1 innings that suggests an efficient, less unpredictable approach on his pitching arm. Furthermore, with 147 strikeouts alone he may prove invaluable come late-game situations where striking out opponents can change games dramatically. Furthermore, Kelly allowed less hits (117) due to a tighter defense against opposing batters while giving up 52 walks and 17 home runs than Lambert relative to total innings pitched.


MLB Odds/Point Spread: Colorado Rockies +227, Total Odds: 11
