The Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants meet Monday in MLB action at Oracle Park.
The Colorado Rockies look for a winter splitting their last 12 games. The Rockies have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Colorado Rockies have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 96 hits and 62 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 176 hits and 97 RBI. Jon Gray gets the ball, and he is 7-5 with a 4.18 ERA and 97 strikeouts this season. Gray is 0-3 with a 5.18 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Giants have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 66 hits and 37 RBI while Joe Panik and Steven Duggar have combined for 116 hits and 49 RBI. Drew Pomeranz gets the ball, and he is 2-7 with a 7.09 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. Pomeranz is 2-0 with a 1.89 ERA and 23 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 8-2 in their last 10 during game 1 of a series, 10-4 in their last 14 vs. National League West and 5-1 in Grays last 6 starts. The Giants are 6-0 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series, 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 16-43 in their last 59 vs. a team with a winning record. The Rockies are 3-9 in the last 12 meetings in San Francisco and 2-5 in Grays last 7 starts vs. Giants. The over is 8-3-2 in Giants last 13 home games. The over is 7-2 in Rockies last 9 overall.
The Colorado Rockies enter this game red hot offensively, and they're now going up against a pitcher in Pomeranz who has allowed 29 earned runs in his last 24.2 innings. While his ERA is only 4.21 at home this season, Pomeranz is giving up a .308 batting average on the season and has had an issue with both keeping the ball inside the park and control overall. I really want nothing to do with Pomeranz on the hill, so I'm forced to side with the Rockies in this contest.
