The San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies face off in a National League West showdown at Oracle Park. These two squads have faced off seven times so far this season with the Rockies come away with victories in five of the games.
The Rockies can’t be happy with how they have performed their season and the biggest issue has been with their inconsistency. For a week their offense will be hot and running up the score against everyone, and then the next week the offense will struggle to score, even at a hitters ballpark like Coors Field. Coming into this game Colorado has won two games in a row and the offense has looked good in each of the last two games. Charlie Blackmon has been the best offensive player hitting six home runs and driving in 38 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup are the Giants who have also been super inconsistent but two games ago against the A’s they did put up 14 runs. That was impressive, but it was also after back to back games where they couldn't get a run to cross the plate. In that high scoring game, Darin Ruf and Brandon Crawford both drove in four runs.
Kyle Freeland will get the start for the Rockies and coming into this game he sits with a 2-2 record and an ERA of 3.75.
Drew Smyly is going to get the start for the Giants and coming into this game he sits with a 0-0 record and an ERA of 3.94.
The under is 7-2-1 in the Rockies last ten games on grass. The Rockies are 2-7 in tiger last nine games as an underdog. The over is 9-3 in the Giants last 12 games as an underdog. The over is 7-3 in the Giants last ten games as a home favorite. The under is 21-10-3 in the last 34 meetings between the Rockies and Giants.
Freeland has been impressive this season and it’s going to happen again in this game. Look for Freeland to lock down and that will lead to the Rockies coming away with the victory.
