Colorado Rockies (87-75) (Jon Gray) vs Arizona Diamondbacks (93-69) (Zack Greinke)
Rockies key to winning: Gray can’t let up more than 2 runs in 5 innings. Their bullpen is their strength. If they can hand the game off to the pen within 2 runs, its an even game. There is a good chance this could be a lopsided game favoring the D-backs, so Colorado is going to need to keep their composure. With some sneaky speed in the lineup, stolen bases may be key to every run.
D-backs key to winning: Got to pounce early then let the crowd take over. Scoring 3+ runs off of Gray and 7+ innings out of Greinke will for sure win the game. If early runs are produced by big home runs it will lift the crowd even more so.
Prediction: 7-3 D-backs
