CIN vs COL Has Highest Total Since 2012

We are used to seeing high totals at Coors Field, but the home of the Colorado Rockies will see the largest total in our database since the 2012 season when the Cincinnati Reds come to town Thursday.

The Reds vs Rockies matchup opened the day at 11.5 before quickly jumping up to 12.0. It has been four years since a game ultimately closed at 12.0 or higher – three games accomplished the feat in 2012.

Obviously the thin air plays a major factor in the high total – with balls regularly soaring out of the stadium. But the push to get this game to such a high total is thanks to one Alfredo Simon.

Simon has been downright awful this season with the righty posting an absurd 9.60 ERA with opponents batting .358. As hard as it is to believe, those numbers get worse on the road. Simon has a 14.79 ERA in five road appearances – four starts – this season with opponents batting over .400.
