The Colorado Rockies face the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday, September 23rd at Oracle Park for game three of a four-game series.
The San Francisco Giants defeated the Colorado Rockies by the final score of 5-2 on Tuesday night in game two of this series. The Giants started the game off with a bang, as the lead-off hitter in the bottom of the inning, Austin Slater, hit a solo shot to give the Giants the early lead. With the score 2-1 San Francisco in the seventh, a Kevin Pillar double for the Rockies drew the game even at 2-2. The Giants would score three runs in the bottom half of that seventh inning to take a 5-2 lead and earn their 27th win of the season. The Giants are now back to .500 at 27-27, as their postseason hopes remain alive at the moment. The Colorado Rockies are now 24-30 with six games left in their regular season; therefore, things do not look good for the Rockies regrading any playoff chances.
The Colorado Rockies are set to bring right-hander Ryan Castellani to the mound to face the Giants. Castellani is 1-3 with a 5.59 ERA through his first 38.2 innings of the season with the Rockies. Castellani is coming off one of his worst outings of the season where he allowed seven earned runs through 4.1 innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers on September 18th. Castellani will look to bounce back from that awful start in this one.
The San Francisco Giants will send right-hander Logan Webb to the bump for Wednesday's contest. Webb is 2-4 with a 5.73 ERA through his first 48.2 innings of the season with the Giants. Webb allowed six earned runs through 3.1 innings against the Oakland Athletics in his most recent outing on September 18th.
Both pitchers are coming off bad starts, and with two teams that can hit the ball well, I think the best bet in this game is on the over. The total is only set at nine runs, but I could see each team easily scoring five runs in this one. I will take the over in game three of this series.
