The Colorado Rockies face the San Francisco Giants on Monday, September 21st at Oracle Park for game one of a four-game series.
The Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants will wrap up their season series when they play four games at Oracle Park to start this week. The Rockies lead the season series currently by four games to two, but everything could change when these next four in San Francisco are said and done. The Rockies head into this series on the road with an overall record of 23-29. The Rockies have played far better on the road than they have at home, as Colorado is 11-11 away from Coors Field, and 12-18 at home. The Giants enter this series with a record of 26-26 overall and an impressive 16-9 record at Oracle Park this season. The Giants are right in the mix for a postseason spot in the National League, and this home series will be important in terms of lowering their magic number to clinch.
The Colorado Rockies are set to bring right-hander German Marquez to the mound to face the Giants. Marquez is 2-6 with a 4.33 ERA through 68.2 innings this season with the Rockies. Marquez allowed three earned runs through 6.2 innings while striking out six against the Oakland Athletics in his last start. Marquez has pitched through at least 5.0 innings in his last five starts, but he has also allowed at least two earned runs in all five of those starts as well.
The San Francisco Giants are projected to send right-hander Johnny Cueto to the bump for Monday's contest. Cueto is 2-1 with a 4.78 ERA through 52.2 innings this season with the Giants. Cueto allowed four earned runs through 5.1 innings in his most recent outing against the San Diego Padres.
There have been some interesting score lines in this season series, including a 23-5 route that the Giants put on at Coors Field. I believe that the Giants are playing for far too much to let a game like this slip, especially with Cueto on the mound. The price is right for me to take the Giants on the money line at home.
