Rockies bash 4 homers, crush Giants to end losing streak in MLB The Show 20 – The Denver Post

With the start of the Major League Baseball season postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we here at The Denver Post took a look at how the Rockies would fare in MLB The Show 20 on PlayStation 4. We will have a story for every game that had been scheduled until real-life baseball returns. Here’s a look at the virtual Rockies’ preseason preview. Entering Friday’s game, the Rockies were 35-20.

SAN FRANCISCO — After losing five straight, it seems like a change of scenery was what the Rockies needed.

German Marquez was masterful on the mound and Colorado hit four home runs to beat the Giants, 12-1, Friday at Oracle Park.

Marquez (7-4) allowed just one run on four hits and struck out four in eight innings. He had plenty of help as Ian Desmond, Elias Diaz, Garrett Hampson and Trevor Story all went deep in their at-bats.

Giants starter Jeff Samardzija (2-4) gave up seven hits and five runs — three earned — in the 4 2/3 innings of work.

Colorado (36-20) increases its lead in the National League West to three games over the Dodgers (33-23). The Giants fall to 26-31. Jon Gray (8-1) takes the mound for the Rockies Saturday against Dereck Rodriguez (3-4).
