Colorado Rockies pitcher tonight: Jon Gray
In five starts, Gray struggled in August with an 0-4 mark and 6.55 ERA. He gave up 29 hits in 22 innings of work as opponents hit .315 against him in the month.
He missed the Braves series in Denver because of right forearm tightness that landed him on the 10-day injured list. He came back and gave up six hits in five innings at home on September 8 against the San Francisco Giants, but also struck out eight and walked just one.
Gray has scuffled a bit more on the road than at home this season, with a WHIP of 1.54 and an ERA of 4.68 in 12 road starts while posting numbers of 1.15 WHIP and 3.79 ERA in 13 starts at Coors Field.
Colorado Rockies vs. Atlanta Braves prediction
Until recently, the Rockies on the road was a welcome sight for any team hosting them. However, including three of four games won against the Phillies on the first leg of this three-city, 10-game road trip through Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Washington, Colorado has taken four of its last five and six of its last 10 games away from altitude.
In its last four road wins, Colorado has plated more than four or more runs, making the over on Rockies runs scored (3.5) certainly an interesting bet.
We are predicting a high-scoring game in Atlanta, despite Colorado’s 21-51 road record.
