Colorado may be home, but they are reeling, losing five in a row. The Rockies pitching has been dreadful, off an 8-6 defeat allowing 47 runs the last five contests! Lacking an ace, the Rockies are 13-31 during Game 1 of a series. Arizona is in town with a hot pitcher in Josh Collmenter (2.76 ERA). Collmenter allowed five hits and one unearned run to go with six strikeouts in eight innings to pick up the win over the Rockies on Wednesday, a 9-1 rout. He has yielded three runs or fewer in each of his last four starts. The Diamondbacks are 7-1 when Collmenter is on the road against a team with a losing record, as well as 5-1 when Collmenter faces a team with a losing record. Collmenter improved to 3-1 with a 3.59 ERA in 19 career games (nine starts) against the Rockies with his performance last week. Arizona is 6-0 when Collmenter gets four days of rest, plus the Diamondbacks are 4-0 when he starts against the Rockies. Play Arizona.
