Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Colorado Rockies vs Philadelphia Phillies
The Colorado Rockies visit the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies are looking to rebound after a 12-4 blowout at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday and end their 4 game skid. The Rockies are looking to end a 2-game losing streak after dropping their last to the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-4.
Both teams are sitting in the middle of the pack in their divisions with the Rockies 1.5 games back and the Phillies 3.5 games back. Aaron Nola (7-2, 2.35 ERA) will take the mound for the Phillies against the struggling Jon Gray (5.66 ERA) who is 6-6 as a starter.
Colorado Rockies's Latest Performance :
After a win over Toronto back on May 26th, the Phillies spent a day at the top of the NL East, but have dropped 10 of 13 since. The current 4-game losing streak is courtesy of their unpredictable bullpen and a lack of defense. They’ve racked up a series of interference calls and errors that have been detrimental. Jorge Alfaro and Andrew Knapp lead the league with 6 errors. It also doesn’t help that they lead the league in strikeouts at 26%.
Philadelphia Phillies's Latest Performance :
The Rockies are tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for second place in the West. With a struggling bullpen, the Rockies selected twenty-three pitchers in the 2018 draft and recalled Jeff Hoffman from a Triple-A team in Albuquerque after lefty Mike Dunn went to the disabled list. On the offensive side, they have seventy-five homers with 266 RBI’s. Once they figure out their pitching woes, they’ll be dangerous.

In-Depth Analysis of each team:
This is an interesting match-up. The Rockies are the better team on paper, but the Phillies are due for a win and are at home. If the Rockies get their bats rolling, it could be a long night. However, the Phillies have their star pitcher in Aaron Nola on the mound and he’s proven he can win games this season. It’s the bullpen in the later innings that could potentially let them down again.
