The Colorado Rockies hope to throw a Monkey Wrench in to the postseason plans of the San Francisco Giants.
The San Francisco Giants have been putting the pressure on the Dodgers in the National League West with plenty of scoring and pitching getting on the same page. The Giants rode a late offensive surge to knock off Colorado 12-7 Tuesday to keep pace with the Dodgers who also won. Starter Yusmeiro Petit was pounded for six runs over four frames before five relievers saved the day with scoreless baseball. The Giants amassed 16 hits with Buster Posey and Andrew Susac going deep and driving in seven. The Giants give the ball to Ryan Vogelsong who takes on the Colorado Rockies for the third time in 2014. Vogelsong is looking to duplicate his 13-2 decision over Milwaukee where he gave up both runs in seven frames.

The Colorado Rockies might be out of the postseason but that makes them a dangerous team with the roster expanding and plenty of playoff squads to play which makes them a perfect spoiler. The Rockies appeared to be heading for the win Tuesday before the SF offense came to life with six runs scored on Jordan Lyles and four more plated on Matt Belisle. Corey Dickerson paced Colorado with three RBI's while Josh Rutledge and DJ LeMahieu knoked in two apiece. The Rockies once held a 6-0 through four innings before the pitching struggled. Christian Bergman makes his 6th career start when he takes the bump against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday. Bergman is 1-2 with a 5.74 ERA with a 1.61 WHIP covering 26.2 innings pitched.
The Giants are tough to go against when hitting the ball as they have. I don't think we know enough about Bergman so I'm leary about going with what my numbers say...
