Yesterday we predicted that the Minnesota Twins would defeat the New York Yankees in a pitcher’s duel by a 3-2 score. Instead, both starters performed poorly but the Yankees bullpen proved the deciding factor in an 8-4 win. This makes our post-season prediction record 0-1.
For tonight, we’ll predict that the Diamondbacks come out of the gate hot and score runs early, giving Zack Greinke plenty of slack to work with. Arizona will defeat Colorado 7-1 behind a 103-pitch Greinke complete game with six strikeouts, one walk, and six hits. Jake Lamb will hit a home run, double, and single while driving in four but will fall a triple short of the cycle. The sole Rockies run will come from a solo shot by Carlos Gonzalez.
