Colorado Rockies Odds
Losers in six of their past eight games, the Colorado Rockies will try to regain their winning touch on Tuesday before the current home-and-home series with the Houston Astros heads to Denver.
The free-flowing Colorado offense was held to just two hits against the Astros on Monday, with Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon collecting one each. Story hit his seventh home run while Blackmon saw his batting average drop to .437 after a lone single in four at-bats.
Nolan Arenado is 1-for-16 over his past four games. The Rockies will send right-hander Antonio Senzatela (3-0, 3.91 ERA) to the mound for his first appearance against the Astros.
Houston Astros Odds
The Houston Astros will enter their Tuesday home matchup with the Colorado Rockies on a season-best, five-game winning streak. Following the afternoon contest, the teams will head to Colorado for two more games against each other.
Houston’s winning ways also include six victories in the past seven games, a run that followed a five-game losing streak. Designated hitter Yordan Alvarez has missed two consecutive games with a sore right knee. Alvarez has played just two games all season after returning from a positive test for COVID-19.
The Astros will start right-hander Zack Greinke (1-0, 2.53 ERA) to the mound after he gave up a combined one run in 12 1/3 innings over his past two outings.
