Giants' Bumgarner sharp in no-decision vs. Rockies
Madison Bumgarner allowed two hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over seven scoreless innings in a no-decision Wednesday against the Rockies. Bumgarner threw 66 of his 101 pitches for strikes, including 16 first-pitch strikes to the 25 batters he faced, dropping his ERA to 2.51. That's three straight quality starts, and four quality starts in five outings since making his season debut on June 5. The Giants have averaged just 3.4 runs of support through his five appearances so far. He'll get another crack against the Rockies at Coors Field on Monday night in a rematch with Kyle Freeland.
Rockies' Freeland suffers no-decision despite pitching well
Kyle Freeland allowed just four singles and a walk over seven scoreless innings with four strikeouts in a no-decision Wednesday in San Francisco. It was a tough result for Freeland and his fantasy owners, as the game ended up being a 1-0 loss thanks to a walk-off homer in the ninth inning by Brandon Crawford. IT was his finest outing on the road this season, and his seventh consecutive quality start on the road. He'll match up with the Giants and Madison Bumgarner again next Monday night at Coors Field to kick off a two-start week.
MLB Betting Trends
The Giants have won seven of their last eight games against the rest of the National League West.
The Rockies are just 5-12 in their last 17 games when facing a team with a winning record.
Believe it or not, the Giants have not been profitable when Bumgarner starts. They're 2-9 in his last 11 road starts, are 6-16 in his last 22 outings overall, and are 3-11 in his last 14 starts against the division. The Rockies, meanwhile, are 4-1 in Freeland's last five home starts and played with a renewed energy over the weekend at Dodger Stadium despite falling on Sunday.
The Pick: Colorado Rockies +105
