Rockies' Gray allows 10 hits, six runs vs. Braves
Jon Gray allowed six runs on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Brewers. It's an odd line for Gray, who also struck out 10 in the effort. Basically, if the Brewers put it in play they were likely getting on base, but they had some trouble putting it in play against the right-hander. It was an unusual turn for Gray as well after he'd allowed just one run in his previous three starts combined. Gray will take a 4.85 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into Saturday's contest against the Giants.
Giants' Stratton notches win despite struggling vs. Reds
Chris Stratton was able to pick up a win despite giving up four runs in five innings against the Reds on Monday. This was not Stratton at his best, as he gave up nine hits against the Cincinnati lineup, and he also walked two while striking out just one. The right-hander has given up five runs or more in three of his past four starts, and his ERA has ballooned from 2.32 at the end of April to 4.88 in the process. Stratton will be hard to trust as a streaming option when he faces the Rockies on Saturday.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rockies are 13-6 in their last 19 games versus the Giants overall but have dropped five of seven in San Francisco.
The under is 5-0-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams in San Francisco and is 3-0-1 in the last four meetings overall.
The Giants have actually been successful with Stratton on the hill. They're 6-2 in his last eight starts overall and have won eight of his last nine home outings. He's not as talented as Gray but the Rockies are 3-9 in Gray's last 12 starts coming off five days of rest and are 4-9 in his last 13 road starts versus a team that owns a losing record. I'll take a flier on the Giants here despite their issues.
The Pick: San Francisco Giants +110
