Arizona Diamondbacks vs Colorado Rockies Match Preview and Free Picks
Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story has entered the National League’s Most Valuable Player race with a huge second half, but he’d much rather see his team clinch its first division title. Story looks to maintain his torrid pace Tuesday when the Rockies continue their crucial four-game series against the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks, who have lost three in a row and eight of their last 10.
Story hit a three-run homer and German Marquez struck out 11 over seven strong innings in Monday’s 13-2 win as the Rockies increased their lead to 1 1/2 games over the Los Angeles Dodgers and 3 1/2 games over the Diamondbacks. Story has 32 homers and 99 RBIs for the Rockies, who sealed Monday’s win with David Dahl’s first career grand slam in the seventh inning.
Arizona manager Torey Lovullo is searching for answers and said Monday that he will play the matchups in the ninth inning instead of relying solely on closer Brad Boxberger, who has given up six runs over two innings across his last four appearances. Archie Bradley, Yoshihisa Hirano, Brad Ziegler and Andrew Chafin could all receive save opportunities for the Diamondbacks, who play 12 of their final 18 games against NL West opponents.
