8* Under Rockies/Brewers (1:10 ET): Colorado was able to break through w/ a win last night here in Milwaukee. They did so in emphatic fashion, prevailing by a score of 11-4. Beating the Brew Crew had been a real problem for the Rockies previously. They are just 3-10 vs. Milwaukee since the start of last year, most notably getting swept in LY's NLDS. (They were also 0-2 previously in this series). Scoring as many runs as they did yday on Milwaukee is even rarer. The Rocks scored just four runs the previous two games and had not topped five runs against the Brewers in their L11 tries! Remember, Dorothy, we're not in Coors Field anymore. Take the Under this afternoon.
The Under has gone 9-3-1 those L13 meetings and is 13-5-2 the L20. As I just said, the first two games of this series (5-1 and 4-3 wins by Milwaukee) both stayed Under. Colorado is seeing its usual dip on the road offensively this season as they are hitting a collective .210. That's the 4th lowest team batting average on the road in all of baseball. In the first two games of the series, the Rockies had just eight hits. For yday, please note the Brewers had to make a late change w/ reliever Jacob Barnes starting in place of Chase Anderson, who was scratched due to a callus on his right middle finger.
The Brew Crew may not be too confident in today's starter, Freddy Peralta, as his numbers this season are less than ideal. But was that because of injury? He's been on the DL since April 16th with a shoulder. Colorado may be the ideal opponent for Peralta to face right now as he's 2-0 w/ a 1.54 ERA against them. Earlier this year, Peralta did have an 11 strikeout game vs. the Reds where he gave up no runs (just two hits) in 8 IP. The Rockies go w/ Jon Gray here. Gray has been solid (as per usual) and won't have to deal w/ Christian Yelich, who is set to miss a 4th straight game due to a back injury. Before getting roughed up some in Atlanta last week, Gray had allowed 1 ER or less in three consecutive outings. 8* Under Rockies/Brewers
