Colorado (K Freeland) – Arizona (A Young) Match Prediction | 20-08-2019

A delay of over three hours due to rain and lightning disrupted whatever routine Freeland might have been trying to put together before his first big-league start since May 30, but despite the fairly quick exit after 74 pitches (53 strikes), there were some positive takeaways from his performance -- namely that he kept the ball in the yard on a night when the two teams combined for six homers. Freeland's next start will come on the road Friday against the Yankees, posing another tough test for his sinker.

Freeland will get to face the Diamondbacks on the road next week. The 26-year-old has a 7.01 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 27:11 K:BB over 34.2 innings across his seven starts since rejoining the Rockies' rotation after the All-Star break. Freeland got into trouble immediately by giving up two runs in the first inning, but he settled down for four scoreless frames before surrendering three more runs in the sixth.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Colorado Rockies Betting Tip, Prediction & Preview

Freeland held the Nationals offense in check and was a tough-luck loser. He started only 11 of the 24 batters he faced with a strike and generated just seven swinging strikes on 109 total pitches, but this was his first quality start since May 14. He still has a disastrous 7.00 ERA and 1.58 WHIP across 73.1 innings for the season, though he'll look to string together another strong start in his next outing Tuesday against the Dodgers. He did allow three extra-base hits -- all doubles -- but managed to strand them by holding the Nationals hitless with runners in scoring position.

After finishing fourth in NL Cy Young voting last season, Freeland took such a significant step backwards this year that he was sent to the minors in late May after recording a 7.13 ERA in 12 starts. His performances for Triple-A Albuquerque give little reason to believe that things will be any better in the second half, as he posted an 8.80 ERA in six starts.

Baltimore will have a chance to pick up the offence in this match. However, the downside is that the Orioles lost five straight games and are looking to get back on track soon. Baltimore Orioles will be on their way to Colorado to face-off against the Rockies on Saturday at the Coors Field in Denver, Colorado. The Rockies are playing at home, but Denver has been known for the balls flying from good hitters.

The 26-year-old will carry a 70:35 K:BB over 88 innings into his next start against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. He still has unsightly ratios -- 7.06 ERA, 1.61 WHIP -- but he has allowed three runs or less in three of his last four starts. Freeland can't fully be blamed for the loss, as the Rockies mustered only six hits and didn't score until the ninth inning.

While he entered the inning having allowed only two earned runs, he hadn't been particularly sharp in surrendering three free passes and allowing a two-run home run to Tyler Austin. He'll look to improve on his 5.84 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in his next start, though he'll draw a tough Boston lineup at Fenway Park. Though this start came at Coors Field, Freeland hasn't pitched well on the road either, posting only one quality start -- which came against Miami on Opening Day -- in four chances. Freeland imploded in the fifth inning by allowing three runs, though his defense behind him didn't help by committing two errors in the frame.

The 26-year-old left-hander hasn't been able to find his groove since returning to the rotation, surrendering five runs in each of his last two outings. He would then give up his fifth run of the game in the fourth on a single to left field. Freeland tossed two scoreless frames to start his day, but he found trouble later on, allowing a grand slam in the third inning.

After posting a 2.85 ERA last season, Freeland hasn't been able to figure it out in 2019, as he's now sporting a 7.48 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP over 77 innings. Freeland gave up just one unearned run to the Nationals over six frames in his last start, giving some hope he was set to right the ship in what has been a nightmare season. However, he was issued a big setback in this contest, as the Dodgers battered him for three long balls and eight runs before chasing him before he could make it out of the third inning.

Freeland had a 7.13 ERA in 59.1 innings before getting sent down at the end of May, and his struggles had continued in his two outings for the Isotopes before this contest, so hopefully the quality start is a sign he's set to get on track. Freeland opened the game with five scoreless frames and retired 15 of 18 batters during one stretch in a sorely needed strong outing for the struggling left-hander.
