The D’Backs open up a series tonight at Coors Field and will send a Zach Greinke (10-3, 3.54 ERA) to the mound that has rediscovered his all-star form, winning his last seven decisions. The Rockies will turn to a less than dominant Eddie Butler (2-6, 6.26 ERA) and will hope stop the streaking Greinke.
- The Diamondbacks are 7-0 in their last 7 games with Zack Greinke as the starting pitcher.
- The total has gone UNDER in the Diamondbacks’ last 5 games.
- The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Rockies’ last six games against their division.
Butler, like most pitchers, has struggled at Coors Field. He has posted a 9.37 ERA in four appearances in Colorado so far this season. In his last outing, Butler was knocked around for six earned runs and lasted just 3.1 innings.
If you’re playing daily fantasy, check out Carlos Gonzales. He has hit four home runs and has an OPS of 1.295 in 31 career at bats vs Greinke.
