This is it. The final homestand of Bruce Bochy's managerial career with the Giants.

San Francisco opens up a three-game series against the Rockies at Oracle Park on Tuesday night, which marks the official beginning of Bruce Bochy Appreciation Week. Bochy enters the series with a career record of 2,001-2,025, including a perfectly even 1,050-1,050 career record with the Giants.

The Giants must win all of their remaining games beginning Tuesday to avoid finishing the season with a losing record.

It's only fitting that Madison Bumgarner (9-9, 3.86 ERA) will get the start against the Rockies on Tuesday, as Bochy is the only major league manager he has ever played for. Bumgarner has had tremendous success against Colorado throughout his decorated career, going 16-8 with a 3.21 ERA in 34 career starts. He's been particularly dominant against the Rockies as of late, winning each of his last four decisions against them while allowing only four runs over 26 innings.

Jeff Hoffman (2-6, 6.71) will take the mound for Colorado, looking to provide his bullpen with some relief. He has failed to reach the seventh inning this season, but held the Giants to two runs over 6 2/3 innings in his only previous start in San Francisco back in 2017.

Mike Yastrzemski will slide back into the lead-off spot for the Giants, while Buster Posey will bat second and take his spot behind the plate.
