Colorado Rockies vs New York Yankees

Where: Yankee Stadium

When: Friday, July 19, 2019, 7:05 pm Eastern

We have an inter-league matchup in an American League ballpark when the Colorado Rockies face the New York Yankees in game one of their three-game scheduled series. This preview was written prior to the conclusion of Thursday night MLB action and all opinions are based on stats from Wednesday night MLB contests.

Colorado is last in the National League West and plans for lefty Kyle Freeland to make the start against the Yankees. New York is first in the American League East and their probable starter against the Rockies is southpaw J.A. Happ. I’m the Flash and will be discussing this game with you today.

Rockies Four Game Losing Streak

The Rockies are really struggling and have lost eight of their last ten games and enter Friday night hoping to end a four-game losing streak. Colorado has been outscored by 29 runs and has a 20-26 record away from Coors Field. Infielder Trevor Story leads Colorado with 22 home runs, infielder Charlie Blackmon leads the club with a .318 batting average and infielder Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 71 RBI this season.

Freeland (2-6, 7.39 ERA) has a 1.61 WHIP and his 5.35 xFIP suggests some positive regression could be in store for the lefty at some point this season. Freeland allowed five earned runs over four innings pitched in his first appearance since coming off the IL and strikes out 7.39 per nine innings pitched with 3.55 walks and 2.27 home runs per nine innings pitched this season.

New York averages 5.16 runs per game with 83 bombs at Yankee Stadium this season with 31 home runs against left-handed pitching in 2019.

Yankees First in American League East

The Yankees seem to be healthy and have a six-game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League East standings. New York has won six of their last 10 games and enters Thursday night hoping to continue a one-game winning streak. The Yankees has outscored their opponents by an American League-leading 122 runs and boasts a 34-16 mark at Yankee Stadium this season. Catcher Gary Sanchez leads the Yankees with 24 home runs and infielder D.J. LeMahieu has a team-high .331 batting average and leads New York with 65 RBI.

Happ (7-5, 4.93 ERA) has a 1.26 WHIP and his 4.91 xFIP suggests what we see is what we get from the veteran southpaw this season. Happ has allowed 17 earned runs over his last 24.2 innings pitched and strikes out 7.20 per nine innings pitched with 2.18 walks and 1.89 home runs allowed per nine innings pitched.

Colorado averages 4.23 runs per game with 50 home runs away from Coors Field this season and has blasted 45 bombs against lefties this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Rockies is a horrible road team and the Yankees should stomp them on Friday night. Happ hasn’t been that good at home this season but is up against a bad Colorado road offense and Happ should have a brilliant night Friday.

Cash with the Flash and play the Yankees to beat the Rockies.

Prediction: Yankees

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

No idea what Vegas has for a total but there shouldn’t be that many scored Friday night. The Yankees have been known to score a few runs but seem to struggle a bit against lefties leaving us with little choice except to play the Under on Friday night.

Cash with the Flash and play the UNDER on Friday evening.

Prediction: Under
