Rockies' Gray evens record at 7-7 after beating Marlins
Jon Gray allowed one earned run while scattering eight hits with no walks and a season-high 12 strikeouts over seven innings in a win Friday against Miami. Gray leveled his record at 7-7, throwing 69 of his 99 pitches for strikes. He has logged at least nine strikeouts across each of his past three outings. Gray entered Friday's outing with batters hitting .301 against him, and he allowed eight hits in this one. He has a 5.52 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through 16 starts, so he needs a lot of run support to tick off wins for his fantasy owners.
Giants' Stratton edged by visiting Padres in last start
Chris Stratton allowed three runs - two earned - and nine hits with no walks and three strikeouts over six innings in a loss Friday against San Diego. Stratton threw 68 of his 98 pitches for strikes in the quality start, and he was let down by his defense when battery mate Nick Hundley uncorked an errant throw. Despite the loss he was able to log another quality start. He'll look to get back into the win column Thursday against Jon Gray and the visiting Rockies. He beat the Rockies on May 19 in his first appearance against the divisional rivals.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rockies are just 3-13 in their last 16 games against the rest of the National League West.
The Giants have won 14 of their last 16 games versus a right-handed starter.
It took nearly nine full innings last night for one of these two teams to scratch across a run. I see tonight also being low-scoring, especially with Mark Wegner behind the plate. In his last 18 games, the under is 13-5. The under is also 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams at AT&T Park, is 4-0 in the Giants' last four games, and is 4-1 in their last five contests coming off a win.
The Pick: Rockies/Giants under 8
