The San Francisco Giants play the second part of today’s double-header against the Colorado Rockies tonight at Coors Field.

Scott Alexander will be starting things off tonight for the bullpen. Alexander enters tonight’s game with a 4.53 ERA, 3.35 FIP, with 11 walks to 29 strikeouts in 45.2 innings pitched. This will be his eighth time getting the starting role, he usually goes for about an inning. His last appearance was in the Giants’ 3-1 loss to the Cleveland Guardians on Tuesday, in which he pitched a clean inning and two thirds with a strikeout.

He’ll be facing off against Rockies’ left-hander Kyle Freeland, who enters today’s game with a 5.07 ERA, 5.34 FIP, with 41 walks to 93 strikeouts in 152.2 innings pitched. Freeland’s last start was in the Rockies’ 5-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Monday, in which he allowed three runs on eight hits with two strikeouts in six innings.
