The Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants begin a four-game series Thursday at AT&T Park.
The Colorado Rockies look for a nice road win to get back to a .500 record. The Rockies have scored six runs in their last three games and have scored more than three runs in five of their last eight games. The Colorado Rockies have won 10 of their last 15 games when scoring more than three runs. Carlos Gonzalez leads Colorado with 35 hits, Nolan Arenado has 25 RBI and Trevor Story has 10 home runs. Chris Rusin gets the ball, and he’s 1-0 with a 1.69 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. Rusin is 2-1 with a 2.35 ERA and 19 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants look for another win after winning six of their last nine games. The Giants have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. The San Francisco Giants have won seven of their last 11 games when scoring more than three runs. Brandon Belt leads San Francisco with 30 hits, Hunter Pence has 23 RBI and Buster Posey has four home runs. Matt Cain takes the hill, and he’s 0-3 with a 7.00 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. Cain is 17-9 with a 3.41 ERA and 202 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 46-94 in their last 140 road games and 2-10 in Rusins last 12 road starts. The Giants are 5-1 in their last 6 vs. a team with a losing record and 16-35 in Cains last 51 starts. The Giants are 7-2 in Cains last 9 home starts vs. Rockies.
The Rockies can obviously put runs on the board, and Cain has given us nothing this season to back with heavy juice. We're talking about a pitcher who has won just 16 of his last 51 starts. No, thanks. I'll take the Rockies and the plus money here.
