Rockies at Reds 6/7/18 - MLB Picks & Predictions

The Colorado Rockies will go for the sweep when they face the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday afternoon from the Great American Ball Park. Last night, Ian Desmond blasted a two-run home run to power the Rockies to a 6-3 victory. SP Jon Gray allowed three runs over five frames to earn the win for Colorado, who moved into a tie with Arizona for the NL West Division lead.

Twenty-eight year old southpaw Tyler Anderson (3-1 5.07 ERA) will take the mound for the Rockies in this matchup. Colorado has lost each of Anderson’s last three starts and he has given up 13 runs over his last 16 plus frames.
