The Rockies have started their usual second half surge. Colorado is 6-1 in their last 7 games, hitting .286 while scoring 5.7 runs/game in the process. This team has been known for their late-season heroics over the past few years, never giving up. That’s what makes them such a safe bet at this point in the season because they haven’t made many roster changes, with the same players are feeding off of one another. Jorge De La Rosa gets the ball for Colorado, and he’s 1-1 with a 3.20 ERA in his last 3 starts.

With De La Rosa on the mound, it’s pretty easy to see why I’m backing the Rockies tonight. De La Rosa is 6-0 with a 2.12 ERA and 0.964 WHIP in 7 career starts vs. San Francisco, and the Rockies are a perfect 7-0 in those 7 contests. Jonathan Sanchez has struggled mightily against the Rockies. Sanchez is 3-4 with a 5.64 ERA and 1.614 WHIP in 10 career starts vs. Colorado. De La Rosa is 10-0 against the money line vs. poor baserunning teams - averaging 0.5 or less SB’s/game in the second half of the season over the last 2 seasons. Take the Rockies Monday.
