|Date & Time||Friday August 2, 2019, 8:40 PM (EDT)|
The Line: San Francisco Giants -114 / Colorado Rockies +106 -- Over/Under: 13
The San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies meet Friday in MLB action at Coors Field.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Giants have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The San Francisco Giants have split their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 99 hits and 57 RBI while Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford have combined for 163 hits and 82 RBI. Shaun Anderson gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 5.06 ERA and 53 strikeouts this season. This will be Anderson’s second career game against the Rockies.
The Colorado Rockies need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Rockies have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The Colorado Rockies have won four of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 125 hits and 81 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl have combined for 234 hits and 123 RBI. Peter Lambert gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 5.67 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. This will be Lambert’s second career game against the Giants.
The Giants are 10-1 in their last 11 vs. National League West, 5-1 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series and 5-1 in Andersons last 6 starts. The Rockies are 1-4 in their last 5 games following an off day, 1-10 in their last 11 vs. National League West and 0-7 in Lamberts last 7 starts. The Giants are 7-19 in the last 26 meetings in Colorado and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 5-0 in Rockies last 5 overall. The under is 5-1 in Giants last 6 overall.
Anderson has allowed 32 hits and 20 runs in his last 23.1 innings, and he has a 5.65 ERA and .306 allowed batting average in 43 road innings. Lambert ha sallowed 26 hits and 11 runs in his last 21.1 innings, and the Rockies haven't won a game with him on the mound since June 11. At Coors this season in 23.2 innings, Lambert is allowing a 7.61 ERA and .323 batting average. Just an awful pitching matchup and playing in Coors doesn't help the issue. I'll still back the San Francisco Giants because they're playing much better baseball and are in the thick of the playoff race. The Rockies watched their season slip away weeks ago.
