A night after their surprising win over Madison Bumgarner, the Rockies will offer up Jorge De La Rosa (5-5, 5.98 ERA) in a pitching matchup with Johnny Cueto (12-1, 2.57 ERA) as the Giants attempt to salvage a series win.
- The total has gone OVER in 12 of the Rockies’ last 16 games as underdogs against the Giants.
- The total has gone OVER in five of the Giants’ last six games.
- The Giants are 12-1 in their last 13 games with Cueto as their starting pitcher.
Cueto has been nothing short of spectacular for his latest team. He has been going deep in games and getting wins for San Fran. Although he got a little roughed up his last two outings, Cueto is putting up numbers this year that rival some of his career best when he was hurling with the Reds. In two starts vs the Rockies this year, Johnny is 1-0 with a 0.63 ERA – that one win came at Coors by the way.
De La Rosa is living in Bizzaro World this year and is actually pitching much better at home (4.41 ERA), in the thin air of Denver, than on the road (8.22 ERA). This stat doesn’t bode well for the lefty as he heads into AT&T Park tonight against the NL West-leading Giants.
