The pitching matchup for Thursday looks good for San Francisco. Chris Stratton (4.14 ERA) is due up for the Giants. He’s sixth overall on the money charts at press time with +8.48 units in earnings on a team record of 11-5.

The Rockies will respond with Jon Gray (5.52 ERA). He is +3.85 units in the hole after leading Colorado to seven wins in 16 starts. The Over is checking in at 9-5-2.

The Giants are also the hotter team of the two after winning five of their last six outings. Colorado comes into this series after dropping two of three to the Miami Marlins. The Fish sit in last place in the NL standings.

A rash of bullpen injuries has the Rockies scrambling to close out games; their relievers rank dead-last in the majors with a combined 5.56 ERA.

This and That

  1. Giants INF Pablo Sandoval is hitless in 12 at-bats during the four-game winning streak.
  2. Colorado 3B Nolan Arenado is 0-for-7 in the series after having five homers and 13 RBIs over his previous six games.
  3. San Francisco C Buster Posey is hitless in six at-bats in the series and is batting .244 with two homers and seven RBIs in June.
