The Rockies will try to rebound tonight after dropping a 5-3 decision to the Phillies yesterday. They will charge Tyler Anderson (0-3, 3.03 ERA) with the task of pitching against Jared Eickhoff (6-9, 3.30 ERA) and the Philadelphia Phillies.
- Philadelphia is 9-1 ATS in its last 10 road games.
- The total has gone UNDER in 4 of the last 5 games in this matchup.
- Colorado is 5-1 in its last 6 games vs the Phillies.
Eickhoff has shown plenty of promise through his two years in the Majors but has struggled a bit on the road. He has a 4.53 ERA in eight starts away from home this year and could be in trouble tonight as he pitches in the thin air of Denver.
Rockies rookie Tyler Anderson will make his sixth career start tonight and the trends don’t look good for him. In every start he has made so far, he has given up progressively more runs as Major League hitters have started to figure him out. He has, however, pitched pretty well at home. In three starts at Coors Field, Anderson has posted a 2.50 ERA and struck out 20 batters in 18 innings.
