Preview

The Giants are in Colorado for another divisional matchup against the Rockies.  San Francisco had won 4 of their last 6 games despite being on a one-game losing streak.  They won both of their last series 2-1.  The Giants have already booked a postseason spot and are just trying to keep the Rockies at bay.  The Rockies have no chance of making the playoffs and only have revenge on their minds.  The last time played the Giants at home they were swept 3-0.

Pitching matchup

Giants

Alex Wood (10-4, 3.99 ERA) Alex Wood will make his 25th start of the season for the Giants.  The veteran left-handed pitcher is a career 3.52 ERA pitcher and is 3.99 this year.  He's been sub 4.00 in ERA for all his years in the majors since 2013 except his last two where he was 5.80 in 2019 and 6.39 in 2020.  Both of those seasons were less than 10 games though.  In 3 games against the Rockies this season, Wood has a 3.06 ERA through 17.2 and has given up 14 hits for 6 ERs.  

Rockies

Peter Lambert (0-0, 0.00 ERA) Peter Lambert is slated to make his first start since 2019.  He missed the entire 2020 season due to Tommy John surgery and is about to make his return to the majors.  The last time Lambert played he had a 7.25 over 19 games.  Back then he gave up 119 hits for 74 ERs and walked 36 batters while striking out 57. 

Prediction

Even with their one-game losing streak, the Giants have been very good recently.  The Rockies have nothing left to play for and have been inconsistent recently as well, but there's a big disparity between the runs they concede. The Giants have conceded the second least with a 3.75 average while the Rockies have given up 4.88 runs per game.  Expect Colorado to struggle at home tonight.
