The Colorado Rockies look for consistency after splitting their last six games. The Rockies have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 11 games. The Colorado Rockies offense continues to show up daily, and they’ve won six of their last nine games when scoring more than three runs. DJ LeMahieu leads Colorado with 165 hits, Nolan Arenado has 117 RBI and Charlie Blackmon has 23 home runs. Jorge De La Rosa takes the hill, and he’s 8-7 with a 4.88 ERA and 92 strikeouts this season. De La Rosa is 11-7 with a 3.85 ERA and 126 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 21-10 in their last 31 during game 3 of a series and 2-5 in Suarezs last 7 starts on grass. The Rockies are 3-7 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series and 59-20 in De La Rosas last 79 home starts. The Rockies are 10-3 in De La Rosas last 13 home starts vs. Giants.
The Giants have to get a run going here if they're going to gain some seperation in the playoff standings and their win Tuesday should build some confidence heading into this contest. The Rockies continue to play inconsistent ball and De La Rosa can be hit. I'll take the better team and the plus money.
