Rockies' Anderson picks up win vs. Padres in last start

Tyler Anderson picked up his third win of the season while allowing three earned runs in 5 2/3 innings against the Padres on Monday. Anderson gave up seven hits, and he struck out three while walking one. Not exactly a dominating start for the southpaw, but he was able to work into the sixth inning and got enough run support to pick up the win. He now has a 4.30 ERA on the season, and he's struck out 43 in 44 innings of work over nine starts. He'll be back on the bump for the Rockies on Sunday against the Giants in San Francisco.

Giants' Blach hurt by defense in no-decision vs. Reds

Ty Blach gave up three runs over four innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Tuesday. Only one of the runs was earned, and Blach walked one while striking out just one hitter as well. As usual, the left-hander limited the self-inflicted damage, but he just doesn't have the stuff to miss bats, as seen in his 26 strikeouts in 53 innings pitched. He'll be back on the mound against the Rockies on Sunday.

MLB Betting Trends

Colorado

The Rockies are 2-6 in their last eight games against the Giants in San Francisco.

San Francisco

The Giants are 4-1 in Blach's last five starts but are just 2-8 in his last 10 outings when he faces the rest of the National League West.

Prediction:

The under is 5-1-1 in the last seven meetings between these two teams in San Francisco and is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings overall. Blach isn't an imposing pitcher but he limits damage by keeping the ball on the ground. The Rockies aren't as potent offensively away from Coors Field so I envision Colorado's hitters being frustrated by Blach enough to keep the score down. On the other side is Anderson, who is opposite from Blach in that he generates plenty of swings and misses but he's more of a flyball pitcher. Pitching in AT&T Park should suit him.

The Pick: Rockies/Giants under 8
