Games at Coors Field tend to be adventures for pitchers. That'll certainly be the case for Suarez, who'll be making his 7th MLB start and 4th on the road. His ability to command pitches in the mile-high atmosphere likely will determine how he fares.

The Giants, as well as Samardzija himself, have been awaiting a "breakout" performance in which he regains everything -- his velocity as well as his command -- at once.

Career stats

Every game is an exercise in concentration for Holland, who lacks overpowering stuff and thus must rely on guile and control. He has worked at least six innings in each of his last three starts, demonstrating the effectiveness of his approach.
