Colorado salvaged the final game of their four game set with the Padres, taking Thursday's contest 7-3. That snapped a five-game losing streak for the Rockies. The Rockies will start German Marquez today who is 6-9 in his 20 starts with a 5.29 ERA. Arizona has lost five of their six games after Thursday's setback at Cleveland, 4-7. They will send veteran Madison Bumgarner to the hill today. Bumgarner is 6-10 in his 21 starts with a 3.83 ERA. He's been slightly better at home with a 5-3 record and 3.03 ERA. The Rockies haven't done well on the road, going 17-36 over their last 53 away games. That includes teams with losing records as they are just 5-13 in their last 18 on the road vs those clubs. Both these clubs have been decent under plays this season. They have also gone 2-5-1 O/U in their last eight meetings in Arizona. Your free play for Friday is on the UNDER.
FRANK’S CUTTING ROOM FLOOR FOR FRIDAY, 8/5:
My “Cutting Room Floor” plays are the situations I considered the closest to being worthy of investment but did not make the “final cut” for my official plays today for subscribers. The last play I cut for Friday is with the Arizona Diamondbacks with the money-line versus the Colorado Rockies listing both starting pitchers Madison Bumgarner and German Marquez. Arizona (46-58) has lost five of their last six games after their 7-4 loss at Cleveland on Wednesday. The Diamondbacks have won 14 of their last 22 games after losing four of their last five games. They return home to Coors Field where they have won 5 of their last 6 games. Colorado (47-61) snapped their five-game losing streak with a 7-3 win at San Diego yesterday. But the Rockies have lost 4 in a row after winning their last game. They have also lost 13 of their last 18 road games against teams with a losing record. Take Arizona with the money-line listing both starting pitchers. Best of luck — Frank.
