The Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants meet Tuesday in MLB action at Oracle Park.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Rockies have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last nine games. The Colorado Rockies have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 180 hits and 118 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 347 hits and 165 RBI. Jeff Hoffman gets the ball, and he is 2-6 with a 6.71 ERA and 61 strikeouts this season. Hoffman is 0-0 with a 4.02 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Giants have scored five runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The San Francisco Giants have won four of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 152 hits and 84 RBI while Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford have combined for 234 hits and 115 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 9-9 with a 3.86 ERA and 194 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 16-8 with a 3.21 ERA and 201 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series, 8-20 in their last 28 games following a loss and 1-4 in Hoffmans last 5 starts. The Giants are 4-10 in their last 14 home games, 9-2 in Bumgarners last 11 home starts and 12-5 in Bumgarners last 17 starts. The Rockies are 7-15 in the last 22 meetings in San Francisco, 2-5 in the last 7 meetings and the Giants are 5-0 in Bumgarners last 5 starts vs. Rockies. The over is 5-1 in Bumgarners last 6 starts overall. The under is 4-1 in Hoffmans last 5 starts overall.
Hoffman has allowed 23 hits and 11 runs in his last 21.1 innings, and he has a 6.75 ERA and .266 allowed batting average on the road. Bumgarner has allowed 28 hits and 15 runs in his last 24 innings, and he has a 2.80 ERA and .211 allowed batting average at home. Hoffman has been rocked all season long, and that includes his games against the Giants. Bumgarner has been improved these last couple of months, and you can expect a packed house with this possibly being his second to last start in San Francisco. It’s all about finding the small edges as we enter the final week of the regular season. I’ll take the San Francisco Giants and the reasonable price.
