The San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies meet Sunday in MLB action at Coors Field.

The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Giants have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 100 hits and 57 RBI while Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford have combined for 167 hits and 84 RBI. Tyler Beede gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 5.01 ERA and 66 strikeouts this season. This will be Beede’s second career game against the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies could use a win after losing eight of their last 12 games. The Rockies have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Colorado Rockies have won four of their last six 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 236 hits and 123 RBI. Kyle Freeland gets the ball, and he is 2-9 with a 7.48 ERA and 62 strikeouts this season. Freeland is 5-3 with a 3.09 ERA and 35 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The Giants are 5-0 in their last 5 Sunday games, 16-36 in their last 52 during game 3 of a series and 4-1 in Beedes last 5 road starts. The Rockies are 2-6 in their last 8 Sunday games, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 0-4 in Freelands last 4 starts. The Giants are 7-20 in the last 27 meetings in Colorado, 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and the Rockies are 5-1 in Freelands last 6 home starts vs. Giants. The over is 7-3 in Freelands last 10 starts overall. The under is 6-2 in Giants last 8 overall.

Beede has allowed 34 hits and 12 runs in his last 32.1 innings, but he has a 5.73 ERA and .279 allowed batting average on the road this season. Freeland has allowed 26 hits and 17 earned runs in his last 17.2 innings, and he has a 10.31 ERA and .346 allowed batting average in 36.2 innings at home. I'm not sure why we're getting plus money with the San Francisco Giants here  given that they're still in the thick of the playoff race and going up against a pitcher who has gotten tattooed all season long. I won't ask any questions and just take the Giants. 

Pick:
San Francisco Giants +120
