Corbin Carroll and the Diamondbacks square off against the Rockies and Kyle Freeland at home tonight. Which DBack takes Freeland deep?

How can you not be romantic about baseball? Yesterday featured Liam Hendricks returning from Stage 4 cancer to pitch again, Mike Soroka starting for the Braves after 3 years of rehab, and 31 year old Mike Mayers taking a perfect game into the 8th inning against the team that drafted, then gave up on him.
The latter, of course, was bad for me since I had the Over on that game, but what can you do? My Rangers Run line, and DBacks/Rockies over hit easily.

2-1 yesterday, 86-75 on the season (13-5, last 6 day):
Pick #1
Rays @ Cubs, Rays -1.5 Run Line, -110
McClanahan is still undefeated. Kyle Hendricks looked pedestrian in his 2023 debut last week. Stroman acting like he was the first pitcher to ever through a complete game yesterday adds to the Rays fuel for today.
Pick #2
Reds @ Red Sox, Total Under 9.5, -120
Brayan Bello can certainly contain the Reds lineup, and Reds’ starter Ben Lively has been solid in 2 starts. The Red Sox have one of the worst offenses in baseball over the last 2 weeks, as some of the overachieving role players have fallen to earth.
Pick #3
Rockies @ Diamondbacks, DBacks -1.5 Run Line, -120
It’s not a great day for betting in MLB and I kind of had to force myself into a third pick. Here is how I rationalized this: It’s Zac Gallen day. That’s it. he hasn’t been quite himself of late, but a home game against a Rockies team that is 9-17 on the road should help. Kyle Freeland WILL give up a home run, so I’ll throw half a unit at Corbin Carroll +700 to hit one as well.
