The Line: San Francisco Giants / Colorado Rockies -- Over/Under:
The San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies meet Monday in game two of a MLB doubleheader at Coors Field.
The San Francisco Giants look to stay hot after winning nine of their last 12 games. The Giants have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The San Francisco Giants have won nine of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 83 hits and 48 RBI while Brandon Belt and Joe Panik have combined for 133 hits and 56 RBI. Dereck Rodriguez gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 5.27 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season. Rodriguez is 0-1 with a 1.56 ERA and 16 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing seven of their last nine games. The Rockies have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Colorado Rockies have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 109 hits and 70 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl have combined for 203 hits and 112 RBI. The Colorado Rockies didn't list a starting pitcher at the time this article was posted.
The Giants are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 7-3 in Rodriguez's last 10 road starts and 3-12 in Rodriguez's last 15 starts. The Rockies are 5-1 in their last 6 Monday games, 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 0-4 in their last 4 vs. National League West. The Giants are 18-40 in the last 58 meetings in Colorado and the under is 15-5-1 in the last 21 meetings. The over is 9-3 in Rockies last 12 home games. The under is 15-7-1 in Rodriguez's last 23 starts overall.
It's always tough to predict how game two of a doubleheader is going to go without knowing the outcome of the first game, but Rodriguez has very limited reps under his belt these last two months and he's allowing a .278 batting average with one home run in 54 at bats against current Rockies. Rodriguez also has an issue with control this season, walking 14 batters in his last 25.1 innings. The Colorado Rockies should have success against this Giants pitching staff here, so I'll take a stab with the home team.
