The Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants meet Sunday in MLB action at AT&T Park.
The Colorado Rockies could use a win here to snap an eight-game losing streak. The Rockies have allowed nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Colorado Rockies have lost 12 straight games when allowing at least one run. Offensively, Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 15 hits and six RBI while Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 26 hits and 13 RBI. German Marquez gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. Marquez is 0-3 with a 6.33 ERA and 24 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look for another win after winning four of their last five games. The Giants have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. The San Francisco Giants are 6-3 this season when scoring at least three runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 15 hits and six RBI while Brandon Crawford and Brandon Belt have combined for 25 hits and nine RBI. Derek Holland gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. Holland is 1-2 with a 6.23 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 4 of a series, 1-6 in their last 7 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 vs. a team with a losing record. The Giants are 9-1 in their last 10 during game 4 of a series, 0-7 in their last 7 Sunday games and 2-6 in Holland's last 8 starts. The Rockies are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in San Francisco and 1-4 in Marquez's last 5 starts vs. Giants. The under is 11-4-1 in Holland's last 16 starts overall. The under is 12-3-2 in Marquez's last 17 starts overall.
Marquez has been really good in two of his three starts and goes deep into games to be one of the rare pitchers who gives the Rockies a chance to win. With that said, we're getting plus money to fade the Rockies, a team that's lost 12 straight games when allowing at least run and seems to find creative ways to lose whenever they take the field. The San Francisco Giants have put a little something together these past few days, and the confidence as well as the offense has picked up. I'm just not laying juice with the Rockies in their current form. I'll take the Giants as an underdog.
