San Francisco Giants Odds
The San Francisco Giants have won three in a row, including a 23-5 blowout in the opener of the current two-game series at Colorado. The 23 runs tied for the third most in the majors since 2010 and matched San Francisco-era franchise record, set in a 23-8 win over the Braves in June 1990.
The run total was seven more than the Giants amassed in a four-game series at Colorado in August. Alex Dickerson went 5-for-6 with three homers and two doubles in the win.
Right-hander Logan Webb (2-3, 4.35 ERA) will start Wednesday, having limited the Rockies to two runs (one earned) in five-plus innings in a 4-3 win on Aug. 5. That was his first career appearance vs. Colorado.
Colorado Rockies Odds
The Colorado Rockies have lost three in a row overall, and they are coming off a 23-5 drubbing in the opener of their two-game series against the San Francisco Giants. It was the third time in Rockies history that they allowed 23 or more runs.
Colorado’s Wednesday starter, left-hander Kyle Freeland (2-1, 3.43 ERA) is 6-3 with a 3.21 ERA in 13 career starts vs. San Francisco. He took a no-decision against the Giants on Aug. 6 when he gave up three runs in 6 2/3 innings.
Freeland’s latest outing was poor, as he yielded four runs on 11 hits in 4 1/3 against the San Diego Padres on Friday. Garrett Hampson had two homers in the Tuesday loss, doubling his season total.

Giants at Rockies Best Bet
It says here that the Giants’ 23-5 win will impact the quick-turnaround game on Wednesday, but probably not how you think. You see, Giants manager Gabe Kapler rubbed salt in the wound late in the one-sided opener, challenging an umpire’s call in an unlosable game. You could see the smoke rising from rival skipper Bud Black’s head. It’s revenge time.
