|Doc's MLB 10* Thursday Run Line Side Smash|
10-Unit Play. Take #906 Colorado (-1.5 RL) over San Diego (3:10 p.m. Thursday, August 23)
Colorado's playoff chances are alive and well in the National League West and for the Wild Card. Beating the weakest team in your division at home to win a series is a must though if you intend to make the playoffs. Luckily for the Rockies, Kyle Freeland will be on the mound. Freeland surprisingly has pitched better at Coors Field than he has on the road this season going 7-2 with a 2.22 ERA through 11 starts in Colorado, with one of those wins being an 8-0 win against the Padres on April 24th. Joey Lucchesi will be on the mound for the Padres and he has an ERA over 4.5 over his last 7 starts averaging less than 5 innings per start. Freeland meanwhile has been on his game over his last 5 starts going 3-1 with a 1.72 ERA allowing just 1 home run over 31 1/3 innings. I think the Rockies offense will produce off Lucchesi and take the series with a win today.
Best of Luck - Doc's Sports
