Arizona -115 vs Colorado (10½)

All of a sudden both Colorado and Arizona are some five games behind the LA Dodgers in the NL West. Neither team has played especially well through the first two weeks, which makes the Rockies a live dog with Jason Marquis. The righthander has won both his starts since coming over from the Chicago Cubs. Maybe he can finally break the jinx at Chase Field, where he has hit (.211) better than he’s pitched (0-3). Arizona starter Jon Garland is 1-1 since coming over from the Angels. Colorado has averaged 4.9 runs per game, while the D’backs just 3.3. That’s a sizable difference especially with a hot pitcher on the mound. COLORADO.
