Giants' Stratton beat up by Rockies in last start
Chris Stratton surrendered five runs in four innings Thursday against the Rockies. Stratton's eight wins lead the Giants by three, but his hold on a rotation spot could be tenuous with Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija close to returning. His ERA is back up to 4.45 after this one, and if a spot comes down to him and Andrew Suarez, it seems likely that the Giants would pick Suarez.
Rockies' Senzatela set to replace Jon Gray
Antonio Senzatela is the natural replacement for Jon Gray, who was demoted to Triple-A on Saturday. He's scheduled to pitch on Tuesday for Albuquerque, but the two will likely switch places. Senzatela has shown flashes of brilliance with the Rockies, but he owned a 6.23 ERA over 10 relief appearances for Colorado before being demoted in May.
MLB Betting Trends
The Giants are a perfect 4-0 in their last four games coming off a loss.
The Rockies have won seven of Senzatela's lat eight starts versus the rest of the National League West.
The money line price on the Rockies isn't that expensive and I'm banking on them sustaining the momentum that they created last night in the later innings. They beat up Stratton in his last start and have won four of five overall. They're also 6-2 in Senzatela's last eight home starts while the Giants have dropped seven of eight on the road when facing a team with a losing record.
The Pick: Colorado Rockies -120
