Mike Lundin‘s Braves vs. Rockies Free Pick
Start Time: August 16, 2017, 8:40 PM
The Colorado Rockies and the Arizona Diamondbacks are five games clear of the rest of the pack in the National League Wild Card race, but they’ve lost seven of their last 10 following yesterday’s 4-3 defeat to the Braves, Atlanta’s first win at Coors Field in 11 attempts.
The Rockies need to pick up the pace again if they’re to make it to the postseason, and this looks like a good spot to back Colorado with Jon Gray on the mound. Gray (4-2, 4.92 ERA) dominated the Braves in two starts last year, going 1-0 with an 0.64 ERA. The roght-hander is a solid 3-0 with 3.00 ERA in four starts at home this season, not an easy feature considering the characteristics of Coors Field.
The Braves turn to Mike Foltynewicz (10-7, 4.29 ERA) who gave up six runs and seven hits in 2 2/3 innings at St. Louis his last time out. He’s 5-5 with a somewhat bloated 4.88 ERA in 14 appearances (13 starts) on the road this season and 0-2 with a 3.20 ERA in five career appearances (three starts) against the Rockies.
The Braves are 2-8 in their last 10 road games. The Rockies are 11-4 in their last 15 home games.
My free pick selection is on the Colorado Rockies ML.
