Colorado Rockies (50-86) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (70-67)

Colorado Rockies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks 9/4/23 – As the MLB regular season nears its conclusion, two National League West teams from Colorado – the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks – will face off for what should be an intriguing contest at Chase Field at 4:10 PM ET and broadcast live by MLB.TV. Both clubs currently stand with 50-86 records compared to 70-67 records respectively – two teams facing different ambitions and challenges this season.


The Colorado Rockies have had an dismal season, languishing at the bottom of the standings with an underwhelming batting average of 0.249 and an embarrassing 5.61 ERA reflecting their subpar play. Though they’ve collected 1148 hits and 135 homers compared with an OBP (On Base Percentage) (OBP) rate of 0.31 leaves much to be desired; their 1.53 WHIP with 485 walks has struggled to keep opposing bats quiet with an opponent batting average of 0.286 being evidence of that struggle resulting in 11 losses over 13 games overall and more specifically against Arizona resulting in six defeats of seven encounters against them.


Conversely, the Diamondbacks remain in contention for a wildcard spot this season, boasting improved stats: a batting average of 0.253 and 639 runs scored to date; their pitching stats, featuring 4.65 ERA/1.35 WHIP give Arizona an edge against their counterparts; additionally, they’ve been strong at home, winning eight out of 11 games at Chase Field since July; in particular, they’ve shown dominance against the Colorado Rockies when playing at home, boasting a perfect five-game win streak against them since July 1!
