The Colorado Rockies face off against the road-weary San Francisco Giants for a four-game series beginning Thursday night at Denver’s Coors Field.

More from Colorado Rockies News

The Colorado Rockies are in the middle of a tough stretch of games without a day off, made tougher by a doubleheader earlier this week with the Arizona Diamondbacks. (Of course, the Dbacks swept both ends of that doubleheader.)

Now, the club faces off against the San Francisco Giants for four games at Coors Field — and the Giants really need these games after suffering through a brutal series in Los Angeles against the Dodgers, where they lost considerable ground in their chase for an NL West title.

So while these games aren’t necessarily important from the Rockies’ perspective, they are important for the opponents — and the thought of playing spoiler against the Giants must be satisfying for anybody and everybody.
