The San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies meet Thursday 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. Dereck Rodriguez gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 5.75 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. Rodriguez is 0-1 with a 1.76 ERA and 15 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. Kyle Freeland gets the ball, and he is 2-5 with a 5.90 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. Freeland is 5-3 with a 2.87 ERA and 32 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The Giants are 6-2 in their last 8 vs. National League West, 6-22 in their last 28 during game 3 of a series and 3-11 in Rodriguezs last 14 starts. The Rockies are 5-2 in their last 7 Thursday games, 14-3 in Freelands last 17 home starts and 1-5 in Freelands last 6 starts. The Rockies are 4-1 in Freelands last 5 home starts vs. Giants and the Giants are 18-39 in the last 57 meetings in Colorado. The under is 46-19-4 in Freelands last 69 starts overall. The under is 40-18-3 in Giants last 61 vs. National League West.

Freeland has gotten rocked in his last two starts and doesn't have great numbers on the season, but the Rockies have a ton of success with him on the mound, especially at home. The San Francisco Giants scored a ton of runs in the first game between these clubs, but this is a squad that struggles to score with any consistency and that's going to be a serious problem if those issues appear in this stadium. I'll give the Rockies the edge based on the success they have at home when Freeland is pitching.
