Colorado Rockies vs Philadelphia Phillies Predictions 4/22/2023

 

Philadelphia had trouble scoring in the first game of this series as they were unable to get their bats going in a 3-0 loss at home on Thursday night.

 

The Phillies had an 8-12 record as of Friday and were fourth in the NL East, 6.5 matches behind the Braves who were leading the division standings.

 

Only six hits were recorded by Philadelphia on Thursday, and no player had more than one in the contest. The Phillies struggled mightily against the inferior Rockies, going just 1 for 7 with men in scoring position. 

 

On the mound, Matt Strahm (1-2) suffered the defeat after tossing 5.1 innings and surrendering three runs on three hits, two walks, and 11 strikeouts.

 

For the Phillies’ opening game of the year, Cristopher Sanchez will start in the circle after being activated from the injured list due to a triceps strain.

 

He pitched for Triple-A Lehigh Valley of the International League in two rehab starts this year, posting no records, a 1.04 ERA, a 0.692 WHIP, three walks, and 11 strikeouts in 8.2 innings of work. 

 

  • The total remained UNDER in 4 of Philadelphia’s last 5 matches.
  • The Philadelphia Phillies are 4-2 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Philadelphia’s last 7 contests with Colorado.

Colorado Rockies vs Philadelphia Phillies. The MLB pick for this game is the Colorado Rockies.. The Rockies were able to secure the victory in the first game of this series by taking an early lead and riding it the rest of the way.

 

Although Freeland’s most recent start against the Pirates was terrible, at least he pitched in the major leagues this year. Sanchez made just two rehab starts at Triple-A after being placed on the IL late in spring training.

 

The Phillies needed an additional arm because this is their sixth game in five days, so he is throwing.

 

It’s difficult to have faith in Philadelphia after watching how they performed poorly against Feltner, a starter who was below average.

 

Here, Freeland reverts to form, and the Rockies eke out a victory. The Colorado Rockies will win to a predicted score of 6-5.
