Colorado Rockies vs. Texas Rangers Prediction: Can the Rockies Continue Hot Start?

If you're a Colorado Rockies fan, you're likely feeling really good after the first weekend of baseball. The Rockies defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in a three-game series at home with a revamped lineup that ultimately didn't make sense to the public before the season began.

However, now things are starting to click with the Rockies. Colorado has a bunch of powerful bats that can smack any lefty they face. With the Texas Rangers sending out a lefty, are the Rockies the play?

Here are our picks, predictions, and odds for Monday's game between the Colorado Rockies and the Texas Rangers.

Colorado Rockies vs Texas Rangers Prediction

The Colorado Rockies have a wicked lineup against left-handed pitchers. Colorado proved that against Julio Urias and the Dodgers last night after scoring six runs on six hits and two walks.

The Rockies didn't strike out once and got a home run from C.J. Cron in the second inning.

Now the Rangers are sending out Taylor Hearn, who is a much less polished lefty than Urias. Hearn had a 5.06 xFIP last season with 9.4% walks. He was able to strike out 21.4% of batters but only got 40.6% ground balls while allowing 44.4% hard contact and over 20% line drives.

Hearn was much worse against righties last season, allowing righties to hit a .336 wOBA with an ISO of .181. Righties struck out just 18.7% of the time and walked nearly 10% of the time last season against Hearn.

The expected lineup for the Rockies will include eight righties in the lineup including a stack of four hitters between Connor Joe, Kris Bryant, Brendan Rodgers, and C.J. Cron. Those four hitters absolutely smoked lefties last season, all averaging a .255 ISO or better and a .390 wOBA or better.

Newly acquired outfielder Randall Grichuk also had a .208 ISO while Garrett Hampson had a .194 ISO last year against lefties. Basically, from top to bottom, the Rockies have plenty of power against left-handed pitchers.

The Rockies will send out their lefty in Austin Gomber. Gomber has shown some promise but ultimately had a 4.46 xFIP last season while walking 8.5% of batters. Gomber struck out 23.3% of batters but struggled to limit power from righties, giving up an ISO of .195 to righties in 351 plate appearances.

Just like the Rockies, the Rangers will likely have eight righties in the lineup and many of them are line-drive hitters. Strikeouts will likely be higher though and there's no stack in the lineup like the Rockies at the top of their order.

I like runs from both sides but would be much more confident on taking the Rockies over 2.5 in the first five innings.
