D-backs Aim for Eight in a Row vs Rockies

The Arizona Diamondbacks are on a tear at the perfect time and have an opportunity to pick up their season-best eighth consecutive victory when they pay a visit to the Colorado Rockies on Friday. Sportsbooks opened the D-backs as -109 road favorites with a total of 12.

Shark Bites
  • The Diamondbacks are 4-1 SU in their last five games against the Rockies.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Diamondbacks’ last four games against their division.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Rockies’ last 13 games at home with Kyle Freeland as the starting pitcher.

Taijuan Walker and Kyle Freeland are the probable starters. Walker (7-7, 3.55 ERA) is 1-1 with a 2.41 ERA in three 2017 appearances vs the Rox and has a 2.77 ERA in four career outings vs them. The hurler was 0-4 over a 10-start stretch before allowing one run and four hits in 6.1 innings of work in a winning effort against San Francisco in his last start.

Freeland (11-8, 3.81) is winless in three starts since returning from a groin injury despite fanning 17 in 17.2 innings in that span. He defeated the Diamondbacks on April 28 when he surrendered one run and six hits over six innings.

These teams have a penchant for playing low-scoring affairs, as the UNDER is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between the squads.
