The San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies meet Wednesday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Giants have scored 24 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants have won eight of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 35 hits and 18 RBI while Brandon Crawford and Evan Longoria have combined for 54 hits and 21 RBI. Derek Holland gets the ball, and he is 1-4 with a 5.34 ERA and 40 strikeouts this season. Holland is 1-3 with a 6.18 ERA and 19 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies could use a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Rockies have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The Colorado Rockies have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 45 hits and 27 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 80 hits and 44 RBI. Jon Gray gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 4.22 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season. Gray is 0-3 with a 5.18 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 1-4 in Holland's last 5 road starts and 1-6 in Holland's last 7 starts. The Rockies are 4-0 in their last 4 Wednesday games, 3-7 in their last 10 during game 2 of a series and 4-0 in Gray's last 4 starts. The Giants are 17-39 in the last 56 meetings in Colorado, 5-2 in the last 7 meetings and the Rockies are 2-5 in Gray's last 7 starts vs. Giants. The under is 8-2 in Gray's last 10 home starts. The under is 7-2-1 in Holland's last 10 road starts.
Holland has had issues with control and has gotten rocked through 32 innings, and he's making his first start in over a week due to battling a finger bruise. Gray has allowed 10 earned runs in his last 10.2 innings and has allowed five runs in three of his last six games. The Giants have had scoring issues all season, but last night showed that pretty much anything goes when hitting in Coors. Both of these pitchers have had issues, so I'm going to side with the over 10 runs.
