It was a rough outing for Bettis in his last start as he got the no-decision against the Milwaukee Brewers. He went five innings giving up seven earned off of 10 hits while striking out three and walking three.
Prior to this dud performance, Bettis had put in quality starts in four of his five previous starts where he went at least seven innings and giving up two runs or less in those starts. His 81.1% LOB% has contributed to his 3.12 ERA, but once his .257 BABIP begins to regress, we should see that ERA drop more towards his 4.36 FIP.
Colorado has hit a rough patch in the last week winning only two of their seven contests. In that span their lineup is slashing .233/.297/.425 to go with 22 extra-base hits and 24 RBI.
San Francisco Giants
Samardzija was roughed up by the Pittsburgh Pirates in his last outing as he went 5.2 innings giving up five earned off of six hits while he struck out five and walked two. He also gave up two home runs in this outing, which makes it four home runs given up in his last two starts.
In five starts, Samardzija has posted a 7.71 K/9, a high 5.79 BB/9, a high 1.93 HR/9 to go with a 6.94 ERA and 6.28 FIP. All of this is going on while he has a .290 BABIP, which is right around his career average of .295, so this stat doesn’t bode well for Samardzija’s season.
San Francisco has been flirting with mediocrity in the last week winning three of their last seven contests. In that span their lineup has been hitting the ball well slashing .284/.335/.460 while they have hit 28 extra-base hits and 33 RBI.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction: Colorado takes out San Francisco on the road
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rockies +115 & UNDER 8 Runs
Samardzija’s current form is very concerning as he’s walking nearly as many batters as he is striking them out. Bettis may give up a couple runs as well, but he should be able to have a bounce-back performance in the pitcher-friendly confines of AT&T Park. Look for Colorado to edge out San Francisco in a low-scoring affair. Colorado has gone 16-9 on the road this season.
