After last night’s thrilling six run comeback and Charlie Blackmon walk-off, the Rockies (11-19) will have the opportunity to win their first series of the year against the NL West first place San Francisco Giants (18-12). Overall, the pitching yesterday for the Rockies was not particularly good at any point but it was fun to see the offense with that kind of momentum late in the game. Hopefully the dramatics won’t be needed today.
For the Giants, it’ll be the 24-year-old right hander Logan Webb (1-2, 4.13 ERA) making his sixth start of the year. Webb primarily throws a sinker and a changeup combination with an occasional slider mixed in. In his last start against the Padres, Webb gave up three runs on seven hits in six total innings of work. So far this season, he has really struggled against left-handed hitters, who are hitting .420 off of him and are responsible for eleven of his thirteen runs given up this year.
On the mound for the seventh time this year for the Rockies will be Jon Gray (3-2, 3.15 ERA). Gray is coming off of a rough start that saw him give up a season high five runs (four earned) and nine hits to the Arizona Diamondbacks. This will be his first time facing the Giants this year, which historically has not gone well for Gray with an ERA of 6.16 across twelve starts against them. I’m sure he’s aware of this and will be looking to lower that number today.
