When the Giants visit Denver on Monday night, they will be trying to cool down one of the hottest teams in baseball. The Rockies are third in the NL in team batting and have been carried by star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to eight wins in their last nine games. The surge can be traced back to a series in New York the team began a week ago. Tulowitzki entered that four-game set with a .214 batting average; 10 hits, four home runs, and eight RBI later he left town batting .364. The Rockies left town with a sweep of the Mets, and stayed hot over the weekend, taking two of three from the Cubs. Tulowitzki now leads the majors with seven homers, and is tied for second in the NL with 14 RBI. Baseball scores.

For the visitors, Giants ace Tim Lincecum takes the hill. He is 7-5 in his career against the Rockies with an ERA of 3.35. He has won his last two starts against Colorado, with the most recent triumph being a brilliant gem last September 24 during the height of the pennant race, when he allowed one run on two hits over eight innings, striking out nine and walking none. Lincecum is 1-1 on the young season, with a measly ERA of 1.86. The Giants were riding a four-game winning streak when they dropped the final game of its series Sunday afternoon to Arizona, 6-5, in 12 innings. The Giants offense is being led by a slimmed down Pablo Sandoval (.340 BA, 4 HR) and catcher Buster Posey, who has a team-leading 11 RBI. Baseball lines.

Esmil Rogers will take the mound for Jim Tracy’s team. Rogers is 0-1 when starting against the Giants with an ERA of 5.40 and a WHIP of 1.500. His team’s record is 0-2 in these starts. In two starts last season against Frisco, Rogers totaled 10 innings, allowing seven runs (six earned) , nine hits, two homers, and six BB. The longest he made it in either start was six innings. Rogers (2-0, 2.77 ERA) was brilliant in his season debut against Pittsburgh, allowing one run on four hits over 7.1 innings, but less impressive last week against the Mets, when he lasted just 5.2 innings, allowing three runs on seven hits, while walking four. As the opposing starting pitcher to Lincecum, Tracy will need Rogers to regain the near flawless form he showed against the Pirates if his team is to triumph over the Giants’ two-time Cy Young winner.

The pick here is for Lincecum to cool down the Rockies. The FoxSheets highlight that SAN FRANCISCO is 54-40 (+15.9 Units) against the money line vs. NL teams scoring 4.8 or more runs/game on the season over the last 3 seasons. The average score was SAN FRANCISCO 4.8, OPPONENT 4.0 – (Rating = 1*) Baseball betting lines.

The FoxSheets also highlight that SAN FRANCISCO is 86-53 (+19.9 Units) against the money line when the money line is -100 to -150 over the last 3 seasons. The average score was SAN FRANCISCO 4.4, OPPONENT 3.2 – (Rating = 1*)
