The Rockies have lost 7 of their last 10 games but they still have a decent 31-27 record at home while the Cardinals are 25-29 on the road. German Marquez will take the mound for the Rockies on this game who hasn't been that bad lately but the Rockies have lost in his last 3 starts. The Cardinals have been playing great offense and will try to win this series by sending Dakota Hudson to start who has been up and down this season and the Cardinals have lost in 4 of his last 5 starts. The Rockies play good at home but the Cardinals are the better team overall and the offense is on fire. I'll go with the Cards.
