The Colorado Rockies and the Milwaukee Brewers will play the 2nd game of the series at the American Family Field on Saturday. The Brewers took the win 6-5 in extra innings on Friday's game. Urías hit a bloop single to bring home the winning run in the 13th.
The Rockies get here with a 43-51 record and have won 5 of their last 7 games. The team is averaging 4.59 runs per game and they're batting for .262 AVG, have 427 runs scored in 837 hits and 85 home runs, ranking #9 in offense in the league behind the Toronto Blue Jays. CJ Cron is leading the team with 21 home runs and 69 RBI and a batting average of .297.
Defensively they are allowing 5.26 runs per game and rank #28 in the league. German Marquez leads the pitching staff with a 5.47 ERA, 85 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded for the Rockies.
Jose Urena (1-1, 2.05 ERA) will be on the mound for the Rockies in the 2nd game of the series. Urena earned the win in a 2-0 victory over the Pirates on Saturday, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out four. He has a 0-1 record with an ERA of 5.84 and 17 strikeouts in 9 appearances against the Brewers in his career.
The Brewers get here with a 51-43 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. They're averaging 4.48 runs while allowing 4.1 runs per game. They're batting for .235 AVG, 417 runs scored in 730 hits and 124 home runs, ranking #12 in offense in the league behind the Texas Rangers. Willy Adames leads the team with 19 home runs and 51 RBI while Rowdy Tellez is batting for a .227 AVG and has 57 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 4.22 runs per game and ranking #12 in the league. Corbin Burnes leads the pitching staff with a 2.14 ERA, 144 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded with the Brewers.
Probable Pitcher: Brandon Woodruff (7-3, 3.93 ERA)
Woodruff will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Brewers. Woodruff allowed two runs on five hits, five walks, and a hit batsman in 5.2 innings of no-decision against the Giants on Friday. He has a 0-1 record with an ERA of 9.24 and 10 strikeouts in 3 appearances versus the Rockies in his career.
Colorado Rockies are 4-10 SU in their last 14 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Colorado's last 6 games when playing on the road against Milwaukee.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of Milwaukee's last 7 games against Colorado.
Milwaukee are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games against an opponent in the National League.
Even with Corbin Burnes on the mound the Brewers barely won the first game of the series by 1 run in extra innings. For this game they'll send Woodruff to the mound who has done a great job this season but has a 9.24 ERA vs the Rockies in his career. Jose Urena will start for the Rockies and has been outstanding since he returned from the injury list. The Brewers shouldn't be so heavy favorites as they have struggled offensively. I'll give it a shot with the Rockies.
PICK: Rockies ML (+225)
