Streaking D-Backs and Rockies Set For Massive Series

Both the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies currently find themselves in a wild-card spot in the National League but a dud of a series for either one of them could be the worst-case scenario. However, both teams enter the four-game set Monday red-hot with the D-backs winning 14 of their past 16 and the Rockies going 6-1 in their past seven.

Shark Bites
  • Trevor Story is 8-for-21 with 4 HRs and 9 RBIs in his career vs Zack Greinke.
  • The Diamondbacks have won 7 of the past 9 games against the Rockies.
  • The OVER is 6-0 in the Rockies’ past 6 games.

Kyle Freeland will look to end a nasty stretch of play that has seen him post a 5.40 ERA in his past five starts. One of those five outings came against the D-backs, a start that saw the young lefty allow five hits and three earned runs in just four innings of work. 

On the flip side, the D-backs will start a streaking Zack Greinke on Monday. The Arizona ace has allowed just four runs in his past 19.2 innings with 16 K’s and three walks. Greinke has faced the Rockies four times already this season – more than any other team in the majors – and has posted a 3.62 ERA in those outings.
