MLB: Sunday, August 20, 2017 at 3:10pm EST

Line: Colorado -142/Milwaukee +132

Total: 12.5

The Colorado Rockies and the Milwaukee Brewers will wrap up a three game series Sunday afternoon from Coors Field. The Brewers will give the call to 29-year old right-hander Chase Anderson, and the Rockies will counter with 24-year old left-hander Kyle Freeland. The Rockies lead the season series 4-1.

Anderson Slides Back into Rotation after Long Trip on DL

Chase Anderson is back on the mound after a lengthy stint on the DL and will make his 17th start of the season. Anderson injured his oblique back on June 28th and will provide a nice boost to the Brewers rotation. The third-year right-hander is having a tremendous season, sporting a stifling 2.89 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP to go with a 6-2 record in 90.1 innings of work. He faced the Rockies early in the year and held them to one run in six innings, and sits at 3-3 with a 4.92 ERA in 11 career starts against Colorado. Nolan Arenado is 8 for 25 with 10 RBI’s against Anderson, while DJ LeMahieu is 4 for 20, and Carlos Gonzalez is 2 for 20. Keon Broxton has found his power swing, smashing six home runs along with eight RBI’s over his last 10 games. The 27-year old centerfielder is having a solid first full season in the Majors, hitting .229 with 20 home runs and 45 RBI’s. Broxton is 2 for 10 with one RBI against the Rockies this season.

The Brewers are scoring an average of 4.63 runs per game, ranking them 19th in the Majors, and are hitting .251 as a team. The Milwaukee pitching owns a solid 4.18 team ERA, placing them 11th in the Major Leagues.

Freeland Notches Quality Start in No Decision Against Braves

Kyle Freeland will take the mound for the 24th time of the season, targeting win number 12. Freeland notched the Quality Start in his previous appearance, allowing three runs in six innings to the Braves, and finished with the no decision in a contest the Rockies lost. The rookie right-hander is having a very promising season, posting a 3.74 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP to go with a 11-7 record in 127.2 innings of work. Freeland, who will be making his first career start against the Brewers, has not lost a start since July 4th. Trevor Story is swinging a hot bat after a slow few weeks, smashing three home runs along with seven RBI’s over his last four games. The 24-year old shortstop is having a solid season, currently hitting .223 with 18 home runs and 56 RBI’s. Story has collected a hit in 3 of 18 at bats against the Brewers this season.

The Rockies dangerous lineup is scoring an average of 5.25 runs per game, good for third in the Majors, and feature a .275 team batting average. The Colorado pitching has been mediocre, posting a 4.63 team ERA, positioning them 21st overall.

Trends:

The Milwaukee Brewers are:

  • 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.
  • 4-1 in their last 5 games on grass.

The Colorado Rockies are:

  • 1-4 in their last 5 games against a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.

I am taking the Brewers in this matchup. Anderson was dominating before going down with his injury, posting a minuscule 1.33 ERA over his last seven starts, plus he limited the Rockies to only one run in six innings in his lone start against them this season, so I am very confident backing him. Furthermore, right now the Rockies are not playing good baseball while the Brewers are looking strong, and overall I like Anderson over Freeland.

Pick: Milwaukee Brewers +132
