TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASEBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15TH
#957 SAN FRANCISCO RUN-LINE with Webb (-1′ -142) Colorado with Anderson at 8:40 PM EST
Checking in on a sizzling 5-1 run and off Wednesday’s 6-5 home win over the Guardians, the Giants will travel to Coors Field and have no trouble extending the margin against the hapless Rockies. Colorado takes the field off back-to-back home dog wins over Chicago (Cubs) and manager Bud Black, and his boys are in prime position to fall.
Strong right-hander Logan Webb will hit the hump for the visitors. Battling the Rockies, Cubs, and Reds in his last three performances, No. 62 was nicked for only five earned runs and 15 hits in 18.2 innings of work. Logan fanned 14 and issued two free passes on his way to a 1-2 tally with a reliable 2.41 ERA. With three starts completed against the Rocks this season, Webb surrendered just four earned runs and 18 hits in 20.1 innings frames. That shakes down to a 2-0 tally with an outstanding 1.77 ERA.
Picking up the pill for the home team will be righty Chase Anderson. In September, No. 45 made two starts against the Blue Jays and Giants and been assaulted for eight earned runs and 10 hits in 7.1 innings. Chase whiffed six and walked four on his way to an 0-1 tally with a lofty 9.82 ERA. At night this year, Anderson appeared in 10 games (eight official starts) and was zapped for 29 earned runs and 46 hits in 40.2 frames. That’s bad enough for an 0-3 record with a stiff 6.42 ERA.
Technically speaking, this is an ideal spot to fade the Rockies. Colorado has slipped in 92 of its last 145 overall this season, 32 of its last 41 against division foes, 66 of its last 100 against right-handed starters, and 58 of its last 91 when playing under the lights. On the other side of the field, San Francisco has tasted victory in 22 of its last 36 against NL West foes.
The Giants are currently resting in the third and final NL Wild Card spot and they can’t afford a blemish to the worst team in the National League right now. Take San Francisco on the run-line with Webb. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
