    Rockies/Giants Tues May 20th

    Tuesday May May 20th 6:35 MT-TV: FSN-HD | Radio: KOA 850
    TV: CSN-BA | Radio: KNBR 680

    _______Rockies 18-27 vs Giants 17-29_______

    _______Aaron Cook 6-2 2.82era vs Tim Lincecum 5-1 1.92era_______

    Rockies: Cook had set a record with wins in six straight starts until he was by the Diamondbacks on Thursday night at Chase Field. Cook was in decent shape after four innings, having held the D-backs to one run and given them a fighting chance against Brandon Webb. However, Cook gave up a three-run homer to Chris Snyder during a four-run fifth inning. He gave up five runs and 10 hits in five innings. Cook stopped the Giants on April 29, holding them to two runs and 10 hits in seven innings of a 3-2 victory.

    Giants: Lincecum received a no-decision although he appeared bound for a victory in his most recent start last Thursday against Houston. He struck out 10 in six innings and left with a 7-3 lead. But the bullpen allowed Houston five runs in the final two innings, dooming the Giants to an 8-7 loss. It marked the 10th time in Lincecum's relatively brief career that he had struck out at least 10 in one game. Asked what pitches were working for him, Lincecum replied that sometimes it was his fastball, sometimes his changeup and sometimes his curveball, reflecting the breadth of his skill.

    SS Clint Barmes has an 11-game hitting streak. Barmes is hitting .500 (20-for-40) during that stretch. ... The Rockies entered Sunday's game against the Minnesota Twins with just seven home runs in the month of May - the fewest in the National League. Barmes added to the tally with a solo shot in the third, and 1B Todd Helton did the same in the sixth. Colorado went 42 innings between home runs.

    The defending NL champion Rockies (18-27) have won three straight, but still have the league’s third-worst record despite featuring largely the same roster that helped the franchise to its first World Series appearance in October.

    Entering a rebuilding season, the Giants (17-29) didn’t have high expectations like the Rockies, but they weren’t expecting their current slump. They’ve lost 12 of their last 15, including six straight for their longest losing streak since they dropped eight in a row from June 13-22.

    Lincecum (5-1, 1.92) could be the pitcher to snap the club’s current skid. The right-hander leads the NL in ERA and the majors in strikeouts (63), and is the only San Francisco pitcher with more than two wins.
