LHP Lowry takes mound for Giants hoping to prevent history

May 27, 2007 - 2:01 PM Colorado (22-27) at San Francisco (24-24) 4:05 pm EDT

SAN FRANCISCO (Ticker) -- Noah Lowry takes the mound in hopes of preventing the San Francisco Giants from getting swept at home by the Colorado Rockies for the first time ever.

Lowry (5-4, 2.69 ERA) the right man to have on the mound in the series finale on Sunday.

The 26-year-old lefthander has been dominant at home, having won a career-high four straight here to post a 4-1 record with a 1.93 ERA in five starts.

In addition to that, Lowry has two runs or less in each of his last four starts. In his last time out he allowed just six hits in seven shutout innings as San Francisco beat Houston, 4-0, on Monday.

The one caveat is that Lowry is 2-5 with a 6.87 ERA in 10 career starts vs. Colorado. He lost, 5-3, to the Rockies on May 10, and beat them, 9-5 on April 30.

Colorado, which has won a season-high four straight, has not won three straight in San Francisco in its 15-year history.

Taylor Buchholz (2-2, 5.94) will be looking to change that as he takes the mound for the Rockies. Buchholz was tagged for a season-high eight runs and 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings his last time against San Francisco, but is coming off a win against Kansas City on May 19. In that game the righthander allowed one run and five hits in seven innings.

Barry Bonds went 0-for-4 on Saturday and has now gone five straight games without a hit, and 14 straight without a homer. That is the second longest homer-less drought in his career. The lefthanded slugger has not homered since May 8, and remains 10 shy of Hank Aaron's all-time record.
