Colorado Rockies

The Rockies tumble into tonight’s matchup sporting a meager 52-60 record that ranks them 4th in the NL West. Despite their season long troubles, Colorado is coming off a 6-2 win over the San Francisco Giants. So will the Rockies be able to build off that success on the road against Houston? All things considered, it’s more than likely that they come up short. After all, they’re going up against the Astros this evening. Nevertheless, it’s up to RHP German Marquez to get this victory on the road this Tuesday night. He enters this contest with a 10-5 record as well as a 4.68 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Nolan Arenado (24 HR, 83 RBI, .305 BA), Trevor Story (25 HR, 63 RBI, .283 BA), and Charlie Blackmon (22 HR, 63 RBI, .325 BA).

Houston Astros

The Astros blast into tonight’s match flashing a 73-40 record that ranks them 1st in the AL West. At the present time, Houston has a 9-game lead over the 2nd seeded Oakland Athletics. With this in mind, it’s clear that they’ve built up a decent lead atop the division. And since they enter tonight’s matchup with a chunky win streak, it looks like they have the momentum to steamroll Colorado tonight. RHP Zack Greinke is the man tasked with getting the win at home this Tuesday evening. He will be looking to improve on his 10-4 record as well as his 2.90 ERA and 0.95 WHIP. With Greinke getting the start this evening, it looks like Houston has nothing to worry about. Greinke has been acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks, making Houston even stronger.

Players to Watch: Yuli Gurriel (20 HR, 69 RBI, .293 BA), Michael Brantley (16 HR, 67 RBI, .320 BA), and Alex Bregman (27 HR, 67 RBI, .267 BA).
