Chi Chi Gonzalez gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA and eight strikeouts this season. Gonzalez is 0-2 with a 4.62 ERA and 19 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The Rockies are 2-5 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 22-52 in their last 74 road games. The Giants are 8-1 in their last 9 Tuesday games and 7-2 in their last 9 games as a favorite. The under is 5-1 in Rockies last 6 road games. The under is 8-2-2 in Giants last 12 home games. The Rockies are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in San Francisco and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings.
You can make a case for either the Rockies or Giants, two teams playing well recently, but it's the Giants who have been money at home and last nights blowout win only increases the confidence. Also, Aaron Sanchez has allowed just four runs in 19.2 innings while striking out 14. It's still early, but Sanchez is pitching at an All-Star level through four games. Somewhat of a steep price, but I'll lay it anyway with the Giants.
