The San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies meet Wednesday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The San Francisco Giants look for another win to build on their four-game winning streak. The Giants have scored 29 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The San Francisco Giants have won four of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 87 hits and 50 RBI while Brandon Crawford and Joe Panik have combined for 142 hits and 65 RBI. Shaun Anderson gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 4.48 ERA and 40 strikeouts this season. This will be Anderson’s first career game against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Rockies have scored seven runs in their last three games and four or more runs in three of their last six games. The Colorado Rockies have lost two of their last three games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 111 hits and 70 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl have combined for 205 hits and 112 RBI. Jon Gray gets the ball, and he is 9-6 with a 3.83 ERA and 121 strikeouts this season. Gray is 1-3 with a 4.38 ERA and 37 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 6-0 in their last 6 vs. National League West, 5-16 in their last 21 Wednesday games and 1-5 in their last 6 during game 4 of a series. The Rockies are 9-3 in their last 12 during game 4 of a series, 11-5 in their last 16 Wednesday games and 5-1 in Gray's last 6 starts. The Giants are 6-20 in the last 26 meetings in Colorado and the under is 14-5-1 in the last 20 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Gray's last 4 starts overall. The over is 4-1 in Anderson's last 5 starts overall.
Anderson has struggled this month, allowing 12 hits and eight runs in his last nine innings, and he's allowing a .283 batting average on the season. Gray has allowed just 16 earned runs in his last 49.1 innings, and he has an impressive 3.24 ERA in 50 innings at home this season. While the Rockies have the pitching edge for this game, it's the Giants that are playing better team baseball and actually are consistently putting up runs offensively. Even last night when the Giants blew the game in the ninth, they came back and closed the deal again with their offense. These Giants have a pep in their step. I'll take a shot with the big plus money.
