The Colorado Rockies are back in town, and the San Francisco Giants will try and pick up where they left off, when the swept Colorado a few weeks ago.

Another sweep would be nice, but you can’t sweep a series if you don’t win the first game so ... let’s start at the very beginning. A very good place to start and all.

When: 6:45 p.m. PT

Notes

Short bench: The Giants are hoping that Mike Yastrzemski can avoid hitting the 10-day Injured List, but he’s going to miss a few games, and Brandon Crawford is sidelined until at least tomorrow. Which means the Giants only have three position players on the bench: Tommy La Stella, Jason Vosler, and backup catcher Curt Casali.


Enjoy the baseball, friends.
