The Colorado Rockies and the San Francisco Giants meet in an NL West division matchup in MLB action from Oracle Park on Sunday afternoon.
The Colorado Rockies will look to bounce back from a 4-3 loss to the Giants on Saturday. Ryan McMahon led the charge, going 2 for 4 with a two-run home run while Raimel Tapia went 2 for 3 with an RBI as well to cap off the scoring for the Rockies in defeat. Trevor Story went 2 for 4 at the dish and Charlie Blackmon had a double while Josh Fuentes and Chi Chi Gonzalez each had a base hit as well in the losing effort. Gonzalez allowed one run on four hits over five innings of work, not factoring in the decision. Ben Bowden took the loss in relief to fall to 0-2 on the year. German Marquez will start here and is 0-0 with a 3.60 ERA and 7 strikeouts this season. In his career, Marquez is 4-4 with a 5.53 ERA and 50 strikeouts against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants will look to keep the ball rolling after their win over the Rockies on Saturday. Brandon Crawford had a three-run home run to lead the way for San Fran while Alex Dickerson had an RBI to cap off the scoring for the Giants. Tommy La Stella went 2 for 3 with a double and Evan Longoria added a base hit as the Giants cranked out just five hits as a team in the victory. Logan Webb gave up three earned runs on eight hits with six strikeouts over five innings of work, not factoring in the decision. Caleb Baragar got the win to improve to 2-0 on the year while Jake Mcgee picked up his 4th save of the season. Anthony DeSclafani will start here and is 0-0 with a 1.80 ERA and 4 strikeouts this season. In his career, DeSclafani is 1-1 with a 4.24 ERA and 15 strikeouts against Colorado.
Colorado is 22-47 in their last 69 road games and 21-48 in their last 69 games as a road underdog while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record. San Francisco is 2-6 in their last 8 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 division games while the under is 4-1-2 in their last 7 Sunday games.
I get the case that could be made for either side and I think that Sunday’s matchup is going to be just as good as Saturday’s. With that said, I’m expecting an under-the-radar pitchers duel here, as DeSclafani and Marquez have both been decent to start their respective seasons. I could easily see another 4-3 game here, so give me the under.
