The Line: Colorado Rockies / San Francisco Giants --- Over/Under: Click Here for the Latest Odds
The San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies meet Tuesday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after winning nine of their last 12 games. The Giants have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 11 of their last 13 games. The Giants have won nine of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Mike Yastrzemski leads the Giants with 37 hits and 24 RBI while Donovan Solano and Wilmer Flores have combined for 70 hits and 39 RBI. Kevin Gausman gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 4.54 ERA and 48 strikeouts this season. Gausman is 0-1 with a 6.97 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing three of their last four games. The Rockies have scored six runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The Rockies have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Charlie Blackmon leads the Rockies with 47 hits and 28 RBI while Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado have combined for 75 hits and 39 RBI. Jon Gray gets the ball, and he is 2-3 with a 5.45 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. Gray is 1-5 with a 5.30 ERA and 47 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Kevin Gausman has allowed 13 earned runs and 25 hits in his last 27.1 innings, and he has 38 strikeouts and seven walks during that span. Jon Gray has allowed 19 earned runs and 29 hits in his last 26 innings, and he has 16 strikeouts and seven walks during that span. In 120 career at bats against current Giants hitters, Gray is allowing a .355 batting average and .420 on base percentage with seven homers. There's no way I can back Gray in this spot given his struggles this season and the way the Giants have hit him in his career. The Giants are also playing the better ball overall right now.
Give me the Giants on the road and whatever the line is.
