The Colorado Rockies and the Milwaukee Brewers meet in MLB action from American Family Field on Monday night.
The Colorado Rockies will try to salvage a win after their third straight loss to the Brew Crew on Sunday. Connor Joe has 86 hits and a .257 batting average with 17 doubles, 5 home runs and 3 triples. CJ Cron has 105 hits with 21 doubles, 2 triples, a team-high 22 home runs and 70 RBIs while Ryan McMahon has 15 doubles and Charlie Blackmon has 96 hits with 15 home runs and 58 RBIs of his own up to this point in the season for the Rockies. Randal Grichuk also has 9 home runs and 43 RBIs as well this season. Jose Iglesias also has 20 doubles of his own and a .301 batting average on the year. Kyle Freeland will start here and is 4-7 with a 4.96 ERA and 69 strikeouts this season.
The Milwaukee Brewers will look to complete the sweep after their 10-9 win over the Rockies from Sunday’s matchup. Rowdy Tellez has 18 home runs and 58 RBIs while Hunter Renfroe has 16 homers as well and Willy Adames also has 20 home runs. Renfroe has a .257 batting average and Adames has 53 RBIs. Christian Yelich also has 85 hits with 13 doubles and 32 RBIs and Andrew McCutchen has a .255 batting average and 81 hits this season. Aaron Ashby will start here and is 2-7 with a 4.57 ERA and 83 strikeouts this season.
Colorado is 44-91 in their last 135 road games and 3-7 in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 Monday games. Milwaukee is 6-2 in their last 8 games against a left-handed starter and 4-0 in their last 4 Monday games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against the NL West.
I get the reasoning for Milwaukee as a team being favored, but Aaron Ashby for me is not a pitcher. I feel comfortable laying this kind of juice with. The Rockies have been the best team in the majors in terms of hitting lefties this season and whey came fairly close to taking the win on Sunday. I think this is a spot where the Rockies hold some value, so give me Colorado in this one.
