You know the setting well. September baseball in San Francisco. These are the series when the Giants fans all show up, bundled up in their orange and black sweaters and jackets, and make AT&T Park the last place any opposing team wants to play baseball. Even in a massively disappointing season for the Giants, it is never a friendly destination for the Rockies. This season is no different, as Colorado enters tonight’s game with a 25-47 record away from Coors Field.
We’ve watched enough games where the Rockies struggle to find any offensive pop in San Francisco with their #1 lineup; do we really expect much from this lineup? Of course this is the lineup that Tim Lincecum gets to face. Of course it is.
Speaking of Lincecum, here is the lineup he will have behind him, which is full of familiar names:
You know what’s going to happen in this game, right? Lincecum is going to pitch well and strike out like eight or nine Rockies. Crawford is going to go like 4-for-4 with a couple doubles and the deciding home run late. Don’t fight it. You know it’s true.
