The Colorado Rockies will send Dinelson Lamet to the mound, hoping for a strong performance from the right-handed pitcher. Although Lamet has struggled recently with a high ERA of 12.66, he has shown glimpses of his potential, with 13 strikeouts in just 10.2 innings pitched. The Rockies will rely on Lamet's ability to regain control and keep the Diamondbacks' hitters at bay.
Opposing Lamet will be the Arizona Diamondbacks' left-handed pitcher, Tommy Henry. Henry has been a steady presence on the mound this season, posting a 4.50 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. With 33 strikeouts in 34.0 innings, he has shown the ability to generate swings and misses. The Diamondbacks will look to Henry to deliver a quality start and contain the Rockies' potent lineup.
When it comes to hitting, the Colorado Rockies have been led by Ryan McMahon, who has displayed his power with 8 home runs and 31 RBIs. Elias Diaz has also been a standout performer, boasting an impressive .329 batting average. With a lineup capable of producing runs in bunches, the Rockies have the potential to put pressure on the Diamondbacks' pitching staff.
On the other side, the Arizona Diamondbacks have relied on Christian Walker and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. to provide offensive firepower. Walker has launched 11 home runs and driven in 34 runs, while Gurriel Jr. has displayed a consistent bat with a .312 batting average. With a lineup that can generate runs, the Diamondbacks will look to capitalize on the Rockies' pitching staff.
In terms of injuries, the Colorado Rockies will be without the services of Dinelson Lamet, who is currently on the 15-day injured list. Charlie Blackmon is also unavailable due to bereavement, and Ryan Feltner is on the 60-day injured list. These absences may impact the Rockies' pitching depth and overall performance.
Fortunately for the Arizona Diamondbacks, they have no injured players listed on their roster. This puts them in a favorable position, as they have a full complement of players available for the game.
Considering the offensive capabilities of both teams and the pitching struggles of Dinelson Lamet, we predict that the total runs scored in this game will exceed 10. The Rockies' lineup, led by Ryan McMahon, has the power to put runs on the board. Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks have shown consistent hitting throughout the season. With the pitchers' recent performances and the hitter-friendly environment of Chase Field, we expect both teams to contribute to a high-scoring affair.
Pick: Over 10 runs
