There is a reason why the line on this game is right around EVEN for both teams (Arizona is the -110 favorite, Colorada at +100).

The Diamondbacks are 12-3 in their last 15 road games and 16-5 in Robbie Ray's last 21 road starts.  The Rockies are 5-1 in Kyle Freeland’s last 6 home starts.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Diamondbacks LH Robbie Ray (3-1, 5.23 ERA) vs. Rockies LH Kyle Freeland (8-6, 3.18)

After giving a strong performance in his return from an oblique injury, Ray has struggled in his last two outings, surrendering 10 runs on 13 hits - five homers - and five walks over 9 1/3 innings. The 26-year-old Tennessean escaped with a no-decision against San Diego on Saturday after yielding four runs on four hits.

Freeland had his streak of six straight outings of six or more innings snapped at Seattle on Saturday as he lasted only five and came away with a no-decision despite allowing just one run on five hits and four walks.  

Freeland fell to 1-2 with a 4.74 ERA in four career starts against Arizona on June 10, when he surrendered four runs on four hits and as many walks in six inning.

Arizona is 8-2 in the last ten meetings between these two teams.
