San Francisco Giants vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

I'm not running to the window to back either the Giants or Rockies, but I have to side with San Francisco if forced to pick. The Rockies are one of the worst teams in baseball, and playing at home hasn't helped much. It's a shame because Winn has had his struggles on the road, and he was awful in his last start. Cal Quantrill is also a decent enough pitcher to give a look as an underdog. Still, I'm banking on the Giants being the better team for a third time in this series. Give me the Giants to complete the sweep on Thursday afternoon.
