Coors Field is no friend to Matt Moore, Giants

Matt Moore is no fan of pitching at Coors Field.

Most pitchers aren’t as the home of the Colorado Rockies is the friendliest to hitters in the league. But the San Francisco Giants lefty particularly feels the pain whenever he throws there.

After allowing six runs on nine hits over four innings in a losing effort on Saturday, Moore now carries a 12.34 ERA at the high-altitude stadium.

And his team lost, 12-3, dropping the Giants’ record to 6-12.

Making matters worse, starting center fielder Denard Span was forced to leave the contest after crashing into the wall to make a catch. Span suffered a mild shoulder sprain in the collision and will receive X-rays.
