Colorado Rockies game no. 16 thread: German Márquez vs. Derek Holland

New, comments

Can the Rockies stop the skid?

It’s been a rough stretch for the Rockies, who are in the midst of an eight-game slide and have lost 12 of their last 13. They are off to a franchise worst start of 3-12. Losing an 18 inning marathon on Friday night and then having to go up against Madison Bumgarner on Saturday certainly didn’t help.

Today, German Márquez looks to right the ship. In his last start, Márquez pitched five innings and gave up five earned runs on seven hits while only recording two strikeouts. The last time Márquez struck out less than seven batters in a regular season game was September 15, 2018 — also in San Francisco. He will go up against Giants’ lefty Derek Holland, who has only given up six earned runs this year. However, three of them have been home runs — one per game. He has also struck out 21 over three starts. Fingers crossed for a good outing from Márquez (and the offense too) today!
