The San Francisco Giants look for another victory to get back to a .500 record. The Giants have scored 13 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in five of their last eight games. The San Francisco Giants have won 11 of their last 12 games when scoring more than three runs. Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 48 hits and 19 RBI while Brandon Belt and Evan Longoria have combined for 92 hits and 48 RBI. Ty Blach gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 4.05 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. Blach is 1-1 with a 3.33 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 2-5 in their last 7 Sunday games, 5-0 in Andersons last 5 road starts and 5-1 in Andersons last 6 starts. The Giants are 4-0 in their last 4 Sunday games, 5-16 in their last 21 during game 4 of a series and 4-1 in Blachs last 5 starts. The Rockies are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in San Francisco, 13-6 in the last 19 meetings and the under is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings.
Both of these pitchers have been hit or miss this season and honestly I don't trust either one of them. Anderson has an ERA over four on the road and has a hard time keeping the ball in the park. Blach has been awful at home this season, allowing a .302 batting average and also has an ERA over four. The difference here is the Giants have consistently been a tough team to play at home and usually produces well offensively. If I have to pick between these pitchers, I'm taking the Giants at home due to the bats consistently coming alive.
