Texas Rangers at Colorado Rockies
The Rockies are cooling off, they've dropped 4 out of 5 since going 11-3. That started with sweeping Atlanta 4 games then going on the road beating Baltimore series 2-1. The Mets series 3-1, L.A. back home 2-1. Miami broke the string of series wins and last night blew a win. There's a decline here and on this matinee Colorado will send Tyler Chatwood. He's done well for the Rox, 12-8, number two money pitcher. However he's not built for high altitude at 4-7 with 1.71 WHIP and 5.72 ERA. Texas is back on winning track going 7-3. Now 8-4 against National League. Texas starter AJ Griffin is not exactly a quality starter, but he is the Rangers number 2 money guy winning 10-4 when Griffin starts. 8-3 as Underdog. Colorado in inter league game at home against right handed starters 9-19, against winning teams 5-16. Take Texas.
Texas Rangers +103 for 1 unit(W)
I was wrong about Chatwood. He was masterful! But the pen was terrible.
