SAN FRANCISCO -- Bruce Bochy said after yesterday's 14-3 loss that while the offense is still sputtering for the Giants, he wasn't planning any big lineup changes. True to form, here's the Giants' lineup for tonight's game against the Colorado Rockies. Andres Torres gets the start in left against left-hander Jorge De La Rosa. Otherwise, it'll look familiar:
And the Rockies' lineup against Bumgarner:
P De La Rosa
A quick note from yesterday's game, courtesy of the Giants' game notes: While Matt Cain had the ignominious distinction of being the first Giants starting pitcher since 1902 to allow nine runs in an inning, you don't have to go as far back to find the last pitcher to give up nine runs in an inning for a defending World Series champion. That was Andy Pettitte of the Yankees, who gave up nine in the second inning of a 13-2 loss to Baltimore on Sept. 29, 2000. So there's that.
After their starters allowed no earned runs in their first 26 innings, Ryan Vogelsong and Cain have allowed 14 in the last two games. Bumgarner gets a chance to right the ship tonight against a team that he has pitched pretty well against in the past. In his last six starts against the Rockies, Bumgarner is 5-0 with a 1.91 ERA in 37 2/3 innings.
