Colorado Rockies vs Cincinnati Reds Prediction

I’m on the Reds here. I just think that they’re playing the better baseball right now and while the Rockies have had a tendency to provide value and play their better baseball at home, they’re just not in that mode right now and I’m not sure Dakota Hudson is going to be a guy to bring it out of them. The Reds have outplayed the Rockies in this series and I think they complete the sweep. Give me Cincinnati.
