Mike Lundin‘s Giants vs. Rockies Free Pick
Start Time: June 17, 2017, 3:10 PM
We won with the Colorado Rockies as a premium play on Friday, and I’m going back to the Rockies Saturday afternoon when they host the San Francisco Giants for Game 3 of a four-game series.
Colorado has won eight of nine meetings on the season and hands the ball to left-hander Kyle Freeland (7-4, 3.57 ERA) who was knocked around for five runs (four earned) in 5 2/3 innings in a 7-1 loss at Pittsburgh his last time out. I’m not worried about Freeland though, he’s pitched well throughout the season and will most likely receive plenty of run support, plus the fact that San Francisco has struggled against southpaws all season.
Matt Cain (3-5, 5.22 ERA) will take the ball for the Giants, and he was tagged with five runs and seven hits through just 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against Minnesota in his last start. Cain is a pathetic 0-3 with an 8.40 ERA in six starts on the road this season, and pitching at Coors Field will do him no favors.
The Giants are 0-4 in Cain’s last four starts vs. the Rockies and 3-12 in their last 15 vs. a team with a winning record.
