The Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants meet Saturday in MLB action at AT&T Park.
The Colorado Rockies could use a win here to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Rockies have allowed 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Colorado Rockies have lost 11 straight games when allowing at least one run. Offensively, Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 13 hits and six RBI while Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl have combined for 24 hits and 10 RBI. Kyle Freeland gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 5.40 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Freeland is 5-2 with a 2.61 ERA and 27 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look for another win after winning three of their last four games. The Giants have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The San Francisco Giants have lost six of their last eight games when scoring five or less runs. Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 13 hits and one RBI while Brandon Belt and Steven Duggar have combined for 23 hits and 13 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 3.32 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 13-8 with a 3.04 ERA and 173 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 1-4 in their last 5 Saturday games, 6-2 in Freeland's last 8 road starts and 23-8 in Freeland's last 31 starts. The Giants are 3-8 in their last 11 home games, 4-11 in their last 15 Saturday games and 0-5 in Bumgarner's last 5 starts. The Giants are 9-3 in Bumgarner's last 12 home starts vs. Rockies and the Rockies are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings in San Francisco. The under is 21-10-3 in Bumgarner's last 34 starts overall. The under is 44-18-3 in Freeland's last 65 starts overall.
This is about a 12 hour turnaround with last nights 18-inning marathon ending at nearly four in the morning on the east coast. It's a lot easier to return to the field after a victory and it's even easier when waking up in your own bed. This game should heavily favor the San Francisco Giants. The Colorado Rockies still can't score runs and they have to feel even worse with the way they lost last night with the catcher not having his foot on home plate. Just everything going wrong for the Rockies right now. I'll take the Giants for a third straight victory.
