Pick

The Giants were able to pick up a huge win in Game 1 of this series and they really could use two more wins to finish the series. San Francisco is a couple of games behind the Diamondbacks for the last NL Wild Card spot and they have two teams in between them as well. San Francisco is starting Logan Webb, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in two straight starts. Colorado is starting Chase Anderson, who has allowed five earned runs in his last three starts (15 IP). Anderson has been much better in recent outings and I like the Rockies +1.5 in this game.
