Rockies Vs. Giants: After Shutout Victory, Colorado Looks For 2nd Win Against San Francisco

The Colorado Rockies picked up a 3-0 victory against the San Francisco Giants -- a major surprise -- and will look to follow that up on Saturday with a new winning streak. The Rockies entered this series by taking two of three from the Los Angeles Dodgers, but they lost the finale on Wednesday. Colorado can now start a new winning streak.

Drew Pomeranz (1-6, 4.76 ERA) picked up a no-decision earlier in the week against the Dodgers when he threw four shutout innings and struck out seven. He reached 84 pitches after the final out of the fourth inning, triggering a move to Adam Ottavino for the next three innings. The Rockies won the game, 2-0.

The Giants counter Pomeranz with Matt Cain (10-5, 3.01 ERA), who is looking to get his August back on track. On Monday, Cain surrendered five runs in 5.2 innings to the St. Louis Cardinals, a game the Giants lost, 8-2. He did take the loss in his Aug. 1 start, but he allowed just two runs in five innings during the 2-1 loss to the New York Mets.

This game will be played at 2:05 p.m. MT. It can be heard on 850 KOA and viewed on ROOT Sports.
