The Colorado Rockies look for another victory to get back to a .500 record. The Rockies have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 13 games. The Colorado Rockies have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring more than two runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 93 hits and 60 RBI while Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 175 hits and 95 RBI. Antonio Senzatela gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 6.23 ERA and 14 strikeouts this season. Senzatela is 3-0 with a 4.24 ERA and 16 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 6-13 in their last 19 Tuesday games, 5-2 in Strattons last 7 road starts and 11-5 in Strattons last 16 starts. The Rockies are 4-10 in their last 14 home games, 4-0 in Senzatelas last 4 Tuesday starts and 6-2 in Senzatelas last 8 home starts. The Giants are 8-20 in the last 28 meetings in Colorado and the over is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Senzatela hasn't pitched since late April, and he wasn't good when we last saw him, as he has an ERA over six with an allowed batting average of .311 in 17.1 innings. Stratton has had his struggles as well, but nothing to the level of the Rockies starter, and the Giants have won 11 of the last 16 games in which he's pitched. The fact we're getting plus money to fade Senzatela seems like a smart bet for Tuesday's card.
