On the hill for the Diamondbacks today is lefty Robbie Ray who is 1-0 with a 3.80 ERA on the season. Ray pitched very well in his first 3 starts allowing just 4 runs total but he was less then impressive in his last start versus the Pirates giving up 8 hits and 5 earned over just 3 innings of work.

Rockies are 43-92 in their last 135 road games.
I’m going with the Arizona Diamondbacks over the Rockies in this one. Year in and year out the Rockies are one of the worst road teams in the league so almost any time they are away from home with the odds that aren’t too high I will usually fire a bet against them and over a full season it usually pays off pretty nicely.
