Colorado Rockies vs Philadelphia Phillies Match Preview and Free Picks
Trevor Story has been enjoying a blistering June, which he's highlighted by recording multiple hits in each of his last five contests. Story aims to push his hitting streak to eight games on Thursday afternoon as the Colorado Rockies visit the Philadelphia Phillies for the rubber match of their three-game series.
Story scored twice in Tuesday's 5-4 setback before belting a pair of RBI doubles the following night as Colorado emphatically snapped a season-worst five-game skid with a 7-2 romp. The 25-year-old has gone 18-for-41 in his last 10 contests to raise his batting average from .237 to .270, but he is just 2-for-8 (one homer) lifetime versus Thursday starter Vince Velasquez.
While Story has embraced the early portion of June, the Phillies are singing a vastly different tune with losses in eight of 11 contests this month. Jesmuel Valentin has recorded an RBI for Philadelphia in both games of this series, going 4-for-5 with his first career homer, two doubles and a run scored.
