Game two of the doubleheader, which means San Francisco is playing its ninth road game in the last 12 contests. The Giants are forced to go with Yusmeiro Petit, who has been relieving all season. The last three years he has an ERA of 5.29 in Coors Field in 17 innings there. The Giants' offense lost top players in the offseason to free agency, which happens to teams that win the World Series. The are #21 in runs scored and #24 in homers. David Hale goes for the Rockies with a career WHIP of 1.42 and the Giants are 36-16-2 UNDER the total against a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. Hale has a career 56.7 percent groundball rate in the majors, which helps in a place like Coors Field. Last year Hale had a 2.96 ERA in Coors Field, shutting out a better Giants offense than this one in four innings. Colorado has had a long homestand and the Rockies are 4-1 at home against a team with a winning road record. The UNDER is also 12-4-3 when these teams meet at Coors Field, so grab the home team in a lower-scoring game than oddsmakers anticipate. Take Colorado and the game total UNDER.
