The Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants meet Tuesday in MLB action at Oracle Park.
The Colorado Rockies look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Rockies have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Colorado Rockies have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 97 hits and 62 RBI while Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story have combined for 177 hits and 97 RBI. Chi Chi Gonzalez gets the ball, and he was 0-2 with a 8.71 ERA and seven strikeouts during his 2016 season. This will be Gonzalez’s first career game against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants could use a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Giants have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The San Francisco Giants have lost five of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 67 hits and 37 RBI while Joe Panik and Steven Duggar have combined for 118 hits and 49 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 3-7 with a 4.28 ERA and 93 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 15-8 with a 3.07 ERA and 188 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 5-1 in their last 6 Tuesday games and 3-8 in their last 11 road games vs. a team with a losing record. The Giants are 4-1 in their last 5 home games, 16-43 in their last 59 vs. a team with a winning record and 3-9 in Bumgarners last 12 starts vs. a team with a winning record. The Rockies are 3-9 in the last 12 meetings in San Francisco and the Giants are 10-3 in Bumgarners last 13 home starts vs. Rockies and 9-4 in Bumgarners last 13 starts vs. Rockies. The over is 5-2-1 in Bumgarners last 8 home starts. The over is 7-2-1 in Rockies last 10 overall.
Gonzalez will pitch in a major league game for the first time since July of 2016 with the Texas Rangers. In 76.1 innings in the Triple-A this season, Gonzalez has an ERA over five with 69 strikeouts and 33 walks. Uh, no thanks. The San Francisco Giants are back to being dreadful offensively and Bumgarner isn't himself, but the Giants at home should have the edge over a pitcher who hasn't stepped on a major league mound in three years. While the Rockies offense is capable of digging deep and pulling this out, I'll side with the Giants in this spot.
