San Francisco Giants vs. Colorado Rockies, second game of the series of 4 games at home, the first was won by the Rockies 3-5, the Giants offense could not do anything against Chad Bettis who was throwing a game with great precision. For this second game of the series the Giants have a better strategy and expect the offense to work with the hitters.
San Francisco Giants: The home record has improved and will continue like this.
The Giants at home this season that began just a month ago have cocked 12 wins and 9 losses, the home ERA is over 57.1%. The first series of the season tied it against the Mariners, after that series the Giants won most of the series at home against the Dodgers, Nationals, Padres and Reds.
At home the Giants are scoring 4.90 runs per game, it’s not a bad number but the defense allows up to 4.95 runs to the visitors, that’s a weak point. The Giants hitters make up to 9.29 hits per game, but also suffer 8.90 strikeouts. The only good thing is that at home they have an average of 1.05 home runs per game.
Derek Holland will be the starting pitcher, for him this season has not started well and probably will not end well, Holland has been heavy in the last 3 years, his last good season was with Texas Rangers in 2011 with 16 wins and 5 losses. Currently with the Giants, Derek Holland has 2 wins and 4 losses, and 4.79 ERA.
Colorado Rockies: Imparables on the road.
The Rockies have only one goal this season, to reach the post season with a good record and win the most games on the road no matter who the rival team is. On the road the Rockies have 17 wins and 9 losses with a powerful 65.4% efficiency, in addition the Rockies are scoring an average of 3.77 runs on the road and 7.08 hits per game.
Kyle Freeland will be in the mound tonight against the Giants, it has not been a bad season for Freeland, he’s a pitcher in his second year, this season he only has 3 wins and 4 losses, the era for freeland is 3.42, 1,183 WHIP, this season will surely be better than the previous one.
The Rockies can win this game, they have chances and they are scoring more runs than the Giants, but likewise the Giants at home are dangerous, they have always been a team with an offense that comes off as a surprise if necessary.
