Giants-Rockies Free Memorial Day Play

Rockies minus $1.21 hosting Giants

Colorado is a disappointing 9-12 at home this season. Traditionally, though, the Rockies are tough at Coors Field. I’m expecting the Rockies to start playing better at home. They’ve been showing signs of that putting up a combined 25 hits during their last two games while scoring 18 runs in winning two of three from the Reds at Coors.

Now the Rockies catch the Giants, who are 1-4 during their current road trip and coming off a Sunday night loss to the Cubs. San Francisco lost nine of 10 games to the Rockies at Coors last year. This is the Giants’ first visit to Colorado this year.

It’s a bad spot for the Giants.

Not only did they have to play in the ESPN Sunday Night Game, but they are starting rookie Andrew Suarez. The Giants are 1-5 in his six starts this season. Suarez’s ERA is 5.68. He’s been particularly bad in his last three starts with a 9.00 ERA. The Giants were forced to use him because of injuries to Madison Bumgarner and Johnny Cueto.

The Giants also have been missing Buster Posey, Joe Panik, Hunter Pence and Allen Hanson, who was playing his best ball of his career until going down with a hamstring injury.

Chad Bettis has plenty of experience pitching at Coors Field unlike Suarez, who is likely going to be overmatched. The Rockies are 14-4 in Bettis’ past 18 home starts.
