In yesterday’s game between these teams the Giants beat the Rockies 7-2.
San Francisco Giants
While the Giants have been known for their pitching in the last several years, and they have been legit this season ranking 9th in team ERA, their offense has led them so far this season. The Giants have scored the most runs in the bigs.
Buster Posey missed yesterday’s game, but his replacement Trevor Brown hit a couple of 2 run HR. Posey leads the Giants in hitting and in his last 4 games he is hitting .500. He is a question mark for today’s game.
Jake Peavy gets the start for the Giants and in his first start of the season he was not great giving up 4 runs in 5 innings, but the offense bailed him out in his no decision in a 12-6 win over the Dodgers.
Peavy went 2-0 with a 3.38 ERA in two starts against the Rockies last season.
The Giants have only won 1 of their last 5 road games when Peavy has gotten the starting nod.
The Giants are 3-1 on the road this season.
It’s the same old song and dance for the Rockies so far on the season, as they have a solid offense, but their pitching has struggled. They rank 10th in the Majors in runs scored, but dead last in team ERA.
Trevor Story has been THE story so far for the Rockies, as the rookie has began the season red hot with 7 HR and 12 RBI. However, he was 0-4 in yesterday’s game with 3 strikeouts.
Jordan Lyles goes for Colorado tonight and in his first start of the season he was less than stellar only lasing 3 innings and giving up 5 runs, as the Rockies were crushed by the Padres losing 13-6.
In Lyles’ last 2 starts facing the Giants he has been tagged up for 12 runs in only 10 innings of work.
The Rockies are only 1-6 in their last 7 games with Lyles on the hill including their last 4 at home.
It is only 1 game, but things are not looking good already for the Diamondbacks, as Greinke was shelled last night and their All Star Gold Glove CF A.J. Pollock may be lost for the season with an elbow injury.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER the Number
Tough Over to take with a posted total of 11.5 runs, but neither pitcher in this match up had a solid first outing and both offenses can light up the scoreboard. Also, have to go with the hot Giants in this one with their bats on fire.
