Colorado Rockies San Francisco Giants
Team Matchup: San Francisco Giants looks better this season in offense. Their pitching stuff is one of the best in the league. In first 5 games this season San Francisco won only once and that was against Colorado Rockies this year. They won by 7-0. On other side we have Colorado with totally different story. Their offense is one of the best IMO in NL, but they don’t have enough pitching quality. They also didn’t start this seaon as they wanted. They won only twice this season. They lost series against weakest team in MLB – Houston Astros. Colorado scored 2 runs/game (before yesterday’s game) on other side San Francisco Giants scores 5 runs/game. The differnece is that San Francisco is more consistent in the offense, they didn’t score less than 4 runs this season. On other side Colorado scored only once more than 4 runs (and yesterday of course – 17).

Pitching matchup: Jamie Moyer is the oldest pitcher in the game. He will be 50 years old this year. He lost first game against Houston and i think he will have tough time tonight. Moyer record against Giants is 3-4, ERA 4.43. On other side we have Baumgraner, one of the best pitching talents in the game. He will be ace for sure in the next years. In fact he is ace right now. His record against Colorado Rockies is 2-3, ERA 2.25. He has negative record because of lack of offense by Giants, but like I said Giants offense looks better this season. Bullpen is on Giants side. They have one of the best bullpens in last years.
Key trends: Giants are 12-3 in Bumgarner’s last 15 starts as a favorite. Giants are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Colorado. Giants are 8-2 in the last 10 meetings. Giants are 4-1 in Bumgarner’s last 5 starts vs. Rockies.
Reason for pick: We have rising star with Baumgarner and we have 50 year old guy. The only concern in the past for San Francisco Giants was offense. They always had good pitching stuff. But this season, they look better. With better pitcher, better bullpen and better or at least even at the moment – offense, i think playing on Giants is the right thing.
