The Giants aim for a three-game road sweep of the Rockies this afternoon, and MLB expert Mike Spector weighs in with his best play for the NL West matchup.

Colorado Rockies vs. San Francisco Giants Prediction: Will the Giants Continue to Dominate This Rivalry?

Do you want to know what pure dominance in the sport of baseball looks like? Look no further than the recent head-to-head series between the San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies. 

After winning the first two games of this current three-game series, the Giants have now won 12 consecutive games in this rivalry, including a home sweep at Oracle Park earlier this year. Even before this current series began, San Francisco’s ten consecutive wins over Colorado was its longest winning streak against one opponent since they beat Cincinnati in ten straight meetings in 1933-34. Now at 12, it is the longest streak in franchise history since beating the Phillies in 12 straight in 1945-46.

The Giants have outscored Colorado 95-41 during this streak and have recorded at least ten hits in 11 of the 12 wins and at least nine hits in all 12. Will San Francisco’s dominance over its division rival continue today, or will this be the day that Colorado ends its futility in this head-to-head series? Read on for our best play and odds in the series finale between the Giants and Rockies.

Colorado Rockies vs. San Francisco Giants Prediction

It will not be easy for Colorado to end its losing streak against San Francisco today, considering the pitcher they are opposing. Giants righty Logan Webb (5-1, 3.48) enters the day as one of just two pitchers with five wins (Justin Verlander is the other). Webb has been a budding star in the making, with his first breakout year coming last year, going 11-3 with a 3.03 ERA. His success is largely because he keeps the ball in the yard, with one home run allowed through 41.1 innings. In fact, his 0.2 HR/9 rate leads the league. Webb has also avoided the big inning, with three or fewer earned runs allowed in six of seven starts.

The Giants rank eighth in the league with a .712 OPS against left-handed pitching and should fare well offensively against Colorado’s Kyle Freeland (1-4, 4.91), whose 1.582 WHIP through seven starts is on pace to be the worst of his career. Freeland’s 43.7% hard-hit percentage is also on pace to be his worst ever, and he has consistently found trouble despite his ground ball to fly-ball ratio (1.08) being his best since his rookie year in 2017.

San Francisco has won eight straight games at Coors Field and eight of its last ten overall. Yet, somehow, we are still getting a great price on the red-hot Giants with one of its best pitchers on the mound, and we would be foolish to oppose them and back the underdogs now.
