The MLB is back in action today as the Colorado Rockies will clash with the Chicago Cubs. This is game one of a three-game series. These teams split the six-game series last year.
Colorado Rockies Form
The Rockies are not consistent this season. However, they have improved lately as they have 8 wins in a row. Moreover, they have 9 wins in their last 10 games. But, in this case, they are playing away and their form on the road is not good enough. Their away record stands at 13-15. Therefore, they will need to improve if they want to get something from this game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rockies score an average of 5.47 runs per game, while also ranking 4th in hitting at .265 and 16th in homers with 77. On the mound, their ERA stands at 4.97, WHIP at 1.42 and K’s at 476.
Chicago Cubs Form
The Cubs are one of the better teams this season. However, their recent away form was not good enough as they have a recent record 1-5. But this is a good team and they managed to get back to winning ways as they beat the Angeles in their last game. Nevertheless, their recent drop of form resulted with 7 defeats in their last 8 games. And as a result, the Brewers took over the top spot from them in the NL Central.
On the offensive side of the game, the Cubs score an average of 5.211 runs per game.
Their hitting stands at .254 and they have 96 homers so far. On the mound, their ERA is at 3.85, while also ranking 17th in WHIP at 1.35 and 18th in K’s with 506. The bullpen ranks 8th in the league with a 4.06 ERA.
The Rockies are a good team but their away form is not good enough at the moment. On the other side, the Cubs have been struggling lately. However, they are a good team and they will surely bounce back.
And this will be the game that will start their winning run again. Take Chicago in this one.
