Tuesday, September 19th 8:15pm: German Marquez (10-7 4.41) vs. Johnny Cueto (7-8 4.58)
This is a good chance for Marquez to rebound after a bad start to his September as he faces the lowly Giants. In his last three starts, he has gone six innings only once and has allowed four runs in each start. He faced the Dodgers once and the Dbacks twice, either of which is a team he would possibly face in the playoffs, so Marquez really needs to dominate the Giants to prove he is ready for some high leverage situations. Cueto has had a down year by his standards and has had two good starts out of three this year against the Rockies. Playing at AT&T definitely doesn’t help Colorado, but they have been known to have some good games there.
Wednesday, September 20th 1:45pm: Tyler Chatwood (8-12 4.57) vs. Matt Moore (5-14 5.39)
Chatwood was excellent in his home start, where he had struggled, so coming to San Francisco should play well for the hard throwing sinker baller. Moore has been one of the worst pitchers in the league and against the Rockies he has struggled in each start. He has given up five, six, and eight runs against the Rockies this year so they should have a good chance for an offensive showing during their afternoon game. This is a quick two game set for the Rockies and they should be able to take both games before heading off to San Diego.
