The Colorado Rockies are set to travel to Tropicana Field at St. Petersburg, Florida for an interleague matchup against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Colorado Rockies come into this matchup with a 2-2, and they will be looking to break a 2-game losing streak after recently losing on the road to the Miami Marlins, 3-0. Jon Gray got the starting nod for the Colorado Rockies, and while he struck out 10 batters in 6.2 innings, he was also responsible for 3 earned runs. No Colorado hitter recorded more than 1 hit, and they will look to get Nolan Arenado back on track after going 0 for 4.

The Colorado Rockies are set to start Chad Bettis who went 5-2 with a 5.01 ERA in 20 starts during the 2018 regular season. Chad Bettis did not record a start against the Tampa Bay Rays last season, but he had the bulk of his success on the road as he went 5-1 with a 2.88 ERA in 10 starts.
The Tampa Bay Rays come into this matchup with a 3-1 record, and they will be looking to continue their 3-game winning streak after recently winning at home against the Houston Astros, 3-1. Yonny Chirinos got the win for the Tampa Bay Rays as he went 7 innings giving up only 1 earned run. Austin Meadows contributed all 3 runs for the Tampa Bay Rays as he hit a HR in the 3rd inning and drove 1 guy in with a single during the 1st inning.

The Tampa Bay Rays are set to start Ryne Stanek who has appeared in 1 game this season where he went 2 hitless innings while striking out 1 batter. Ryne Stanek did not record a start against the Colorado Rockies during the 2018 season, but he did have the bulk of his success at home as he went 1-0 with a 1.54 ERA in 31 appearances.

Tampa Bay Rays -135

The Tampa Bay Rays have been a super early surprise through the first series of the season as they beat arguably the World Series favorite, 3-1. Ryne Stanek looked very good last season as he split time in the bullpen and in the starting rotation. Tampa Bay has also proven that they have depth in the back end of their bullpen which has allowed them to shut the door close on opposing teams. Colorado looked loss in their last 2 losses against the Miami Marlins as they were not able to hit any of their minor league pitchers, and I think we see a similar result in this one. Tampa Bay wins, 4-2.
