The Giants return after a long ten-game road trip. Tonight they begin a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies before three games with the Dodgers and three with the Royals, making this a nine-game home stand. The Rockies, it seems they do this every year, started off quite well but have fallen back down to Earth. Inertia is a bitch if you play Major League Baseball in Denver!
The Rockies are now 23-31, good for dead last in the National League West Division. They have lost four in a row and seven of their last ten.
Tonight the pitching matchup will be German Marquez against Carlos Rodon. First pitch is scheduled for 6:45 PM, Willie Mays Field time. For the game on Wednesday night it will Antonio Senzatela versus Alex Wood. For the series finale on Thursday afternoon the pitching matchup is Austin Gomber versus Alex Cobb.That game will start at 12:45 PM.
