Rockies Vs. Giants: Alex White, Barry Zito Clash On Sunday For Series Victory

The Colorado Rockies and the San Francisco Giants will battle on Sunday afternoon for the series victory at AT&T Park. Colorado enters the game with a 9-3 loss on Saturday, a huge letdown following Friday's 3-0 victory.

The Rockies will have Alex White (2-6, 5.75 ERA) on the mound for the possible series victory. White's last start saw him throw four scoreless innings and allow just one hit, but he reached 80 pitches after 12 outs. He had trouble locating the strike zone, walking five. He might have been able to go a couple more innings if not for that. This will be just his third start with the Rockies since returning on Aug. 2, when he 5.1 innings of two-run ball.

Barry Zito (9-8, 4.19 ERA) hasn't faced the Rockies since Coors Field Opening Day on April 9. It's a game the Rockies would like to forget. Zito threw a four-hit complete game shutout. In August, Zito has been on opposite ends of the spectrum for his two starts. He allowed seven runs in 4.1 during his first start, but he came back with two runs allowed in 6.2 innings on Tuesday.

This game is scheduled to begin at 2:05 p.m. MT. ROOT Sports will have the television broadcast while the radio call can be heard on 850 KOA.
