Colorado Rockies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

The Rockies are hot winners of five straight games and while out of the NL West race they are in the 2nd NL Wild Card spot 3.5 games up on the St. Louis Cardinals and four games back of the Diamondbacks. Arizona has lost three out of their last four games after setting a franchise record with 13 straight wins. Arizona ranks 3rd in baseball in team ERA, but in the three losses in their last four games they have given up a total of 23 runs. The Diamondbacks are 9.5 games out of first place in the NL West and have a firm grip on the Wild Card. While the Rockies are only 8-21 in Gray’s last 29 road starts they have won his last two starts on the road. Walker has simply been lights out in his last four outings and in his one previous to his last one he faced the Rockies striking out 10 and tossing five scoreless innings. This game tonight will be a pitcher’s duel, which Walker will win and lead the Diamondbacks to a W snapping Colorado’s five-game win streak.
