For the Giants, Anthony DeSclafani (12-7, 3.23 ERA) will make the start. DeSclafani has been a reliable starter for San Francisco throughout the year, posting an ERA+ of 128 over his 29 starts. In seven career starts against the Rockies, DeSclafani has posted a 4-1 record with a 2.83 ERA over the course of 411⁄3 innings. Colorado will look to get to DeSclafani early, as they did in the last meeting on September 8th, driving him out of the game after 41⁄3 innings after he allowed three runs on seven hits.
For the Rockies, Jon Gray (8-11, 4.17 ERA) will take the mound. Gray has had some ups and downs over the course of the year, but on the whole his season has been mostly positive. Gray has posted an ERA+ of 116 over his 27 starts in 2021 and has been a pitcher that the Rockies can count on being competitive when his turn comes up in the rotation.
Gray has largely struggled against the Giants in his career and has gone 2-7 with a 5.85 ERA against them. His last outing facing San Francisco was also on September 8th, facing DeSclafani, and neither pitcher ultimately factored into the outcome. Gray allowed three runs on six hits with one walk and eight strikeouts over five innings in the contest.
