Bettis Has Been Phenomenal Away From Coors Field

Chad Bettis of the Colorado Rockies in action against the New York Mets

We are all well aware of just how big an effect the thin air of Coors Field can have on a pitcher and Chad Bettis might be the perfect example. The Colorado Rockies righty has a 6.89 ERA at home this season compared to a 1.35 ERA on the road. Bettis has also posted a 0.99 WHIP while holding opponents to a .197 batting average in unfriendly territory this season. Bettis will take the bump for the Rockies when they open a four-game set against the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park on Thursday.

  • Jeff Samardzija has allowed 13 hits and 8 ERs in 8.2 innings at AT&T Park this season.
  • Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu – who slashed .417/.475/.458 vs the Giants last season – will not play.
  • The Rockies are 0-5 SU and ATS in their last 5 games on the road against the Giants.

It will be Jeff Samardzija’s go-around in this one for the Giants, something that is likely concerning to San Fran fans. Samardzija has a 6.94 ERA and has not made it out of the sixth inning once in his five starts this season. It is not like Bruce Bochy wants to pull him early in games but “The Shark” has been throwing an alarming number of pitches to get not very deep into games.

This will be the first time these NL West rivals clash this season. The Rockies held superiority over the Giants last season – not saying that was a difficult feat – winning 12 of the 19 games between the two squads in 2017. Colorado mashed San Francisco, slashing a collective .288/.343/.778 against the Giants. However, it is worth noting that Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu – who dominated the Giants last season – is on the DL with a thumb injury.
