For the Tuesday game, the Giants will be bringing out LHP Ty Blach. In his 150.0 innings and 8-11 record this year, Blach has a 4.68 ERA with 70 Ks and 36 BBs.
San Francisco has some notable hitters this year. Buster Posey entered this set with 134 hits, 55 runs, 12 homers and 57 RBI while Joe Panik had 115 hits, 46 runs and 43 RBI. Posey posted a hit on Monday; Panik had a solo homer, three hits and two RBI.
Over on the Rockies’ side, they’re going with RHP Tyler Chatwood on Tuesday. In his 122.1 innings and 6-12 record this year, Chatwood has a 5.00 and 100 Ks.
Colorado has some big hitters as well. Carlos Blackmon entered this series with 186 hits, 120 runs, 32 homers and 85 RBI; DJ LeMahieu had 160 hits, 83 runs and 56 RBI. Blackmon and LeMahieu combined for five hits, two RBI, two runs and a homer on Monday.
The Giants are 5-2 in their last seven Tuesday games, and 0-4 in their last four during game two of a series. San Francisco is also 0-4 in Blach’s last four starts and 0-4 in Blach’s last four starts with five days’ rest.
Meanwhile, the Rockies are 16-7 in their last 23 home games versus a left-handed starter and 2-5 in their last seven during game two of a series. Colorado is also 1-4 in their last five games versus a left-handed starter and the under is 10-1 in the Rockies’ last 11 Tuesday games.
After giving up 12 earned in the span of 11.1 innings, Blach has surrendered seven earned on 11 hits in his last 10.2 innings over two starts. That doesn’t bode very well for his chances in the rare air of Colorado, so I’ll take the Rockies for the win.
