Rockies Vs. Giants Final Score: San Francisco Takes 4-2 Victory

Madison Bumgarner was excellent for San Francisco, going 7-1/3 innings and allowing just four hits and one run in the process. The Giants took a 4-1 lead into the bottom of the ninth and nearly gave it all away as Brian Wilson struggled to take care of the Rockies.

Troy Tulowitzki led off the ninth with a double, Michael Cuddyer followed with a single, and after a Wilin Rosario strikeout, pinch hitter Jason Giambi loaded the bases with a single of his own. After a Todd Helton lineout, Tyler Colvin drew a walk to plate the second run of the day for Colorado. But they got no closer, as Marco Scutaro followed that up with a flyout to end the game.

Rockies Vs. Giants Lineups: Cuddyer At No. 5 While Helton Rests

The Colorado Rockies (2-3) take on the San Franciso Giants (1-4) on Thursday afternoon, but will be without one of their top run-producers as 1B Todd Helton takes a rest.

Here is a look at today's lineup, courtesy of MLB.com:

  1. 2B Marco Scutaro
  2. CF Dexter Fowler
  3. LF Carlos Gonzalez

Pacheco made his major league debut in the 2011 season and hit 2 home runs in 88 PA with a .286/.318/.369 slash.

Giants Vs. Rockies: Jamie Moyer On The Mound In Rubber Match With San Francisco

After the Colorado Rockies (2-3) turned a Tim Linecum start into a slugfest on Wednesday night and emerged with a 17-8 victory over the San Francisco Giants in the second game of the set, they now get a chance claim the series in the rubber match on Thursday afternoon. The responsibility falls on 49-year old lefty Jamie Moyer, who makes the start opposite 22-year old southpaw Madison Bumgarner.

Giants' star catcher Buster Posey is expected to return to the lineup after missing Tuesday with a case of shingles, but Rockies manager Jim Tracy is just happy Colorado's offense finally busted out of their early funk with authority (via MLB.com):

"That put a smile on a lot of people's faces. The offensive side of things tonight, I don't know if we can do it any better in any aspect of the game."

Giants Vs. Rockies: Colorado To Face Tim Lincecum

The Colorado Rockies currently sit at 1-3, and to get their second win they'll have to get past a two-time NL Cy Young winner. Tim Lincecum will take the hill for the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night, and though his name still carries plenty of weight, Lincecum started the 2012 with some doubts about his ability to be elite this year, and his Opening Day start against the Arizona Diamondbacks didn't do much to alleviate those concerns.

Lincecum's fastball velocity was down in the opener and he's all but scrapped his slider in order to relive stress on his arm. That combination played a role in him allowing five earned runs in 5.1 innings pitched to Arizona, though he did strike out seven. For his career, Lincecum has done just fine at Coors Field, posting a 3.61 ERA in ten career starts there. The Rockies will counter with new acquisition Jeremy Guthrie, who will be making his home debut on Wednesday night. In his first game as a Rockie on Opening Day, he allowed three earned runs in seven innings in Colorado's 5-3 victory over the Houston Astros.

Game date/time: Wednesday, April 11, 6:40 p.m. MT
