San Francisco has scored just 11 runs over its current five-game losing streak, which includes a 4-1 setback to Colorado as +127 road underdogs Friday, while going UNDER the betting total for a second consecutive contest.  “They’re trying to get out of this slump, and it’s human nature to start pressing,” commented Giants manager Bruce Bochy.  The club is 9-16 in June, and now find itself four games back in the division standings.  San Francisco is 6-8 on the road with a money line of -100 to -125, with the OVER going 9-5 in that situation.

Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain (5-4, 4.54 ERA) will look to bounce back from a 7-2 home loss to the Miami Marlins last time out, as he allowed three runs and six hits over six frames.  The right-hander is 2-2 with a 4.76 ERA in eight road outings, with opposing batters hitting .238 against him.  In 30 career games versus the Rockies, Cain has tallied a 17-7 record and 3.30 ERA, including a 7-3 home victory on May 26.

Colorado snapped a three-game losing streak in the season opener, while going UNDER the betting total for a third consecutive contest.  Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer continues to perform at a high level at the plate, as he extended his club-record hit streak to 27 games.  Offensively, the team is hoping that leadoff hitter Dexter Fowler is able to return to the fold, as he continues to be bothered with a sore right hand and wrist.  Colorado is 22-15 versus division opponents.

Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa (8-4, 3.19 ERA) earned a 7-6 road victory over the Washington Nationals last time out, as he allowed two runs and seven hits over six innings of work.  The left-hander is 5-1 with a 3.40 ERA in seven home outings, surrendering just a single home run in 39.2 combined frames.  In 17 career games (14 starts) versus the Giants, De La Rosa has compiled a 8-4 record and 3.74 ERA, including a 10-9 home win on May 17.

Sports bettors will likely back the Rockies due to their 27-3 record in De La Rosa’s last 30 home starts with a total of 9 to 10.5.
