Preview

The Padres begin their four-game tilt against the division-rival Giants at Oracle Park tonight.  San Diego is still very much in the Wild Card running sitting just outside the second spot behind the Dodgers and Reds.  They were swept by the Dodgers 3-0 in their last series which included two shutouts and need to get back on track in order to keep their playoff hopes alive.  The Giants have won seven in a row and 9 of their last ten and have put some distance between themselves and the Dodgers in the race for the division title.  

Pitching matchup

Padres

Yu Darvish (8-9, 3.95 ERA) Yu Darvish is in line for his 27th start of the season.  The experienced pitcher who was the joint league leader for wins by pitchers in 2020 is currently 8-9 with a 3.95 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 2021.  In two games against the Giants this season, Darvish has a 1.46 ERA through 12.1 innings pitched where he surrendered only seven hits for two ERs and has struck out 19 batters and walked four.

Giants

Dominic Leone (3-3, 1.48 ERA) Dominic Leone will start his third game of the season.  Leone is in his first season as a Giant and has a 1.48 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP.  He gave up 12 hits for seven ERs off 42.2 innings pitched so far and has 40 strikeouts compared to 20 walks. He's yet to play the Padres in 2021. 

Prediction

The Giants are on a hot streak and their batting is red hot averaging 8.86 runs per game in their current seven-game winning run.  The Padres have been having trouble with their batting recently and lost 2-1 the last time they were in Oracle.  Expect them to struggle against the Giants again. 

PICK: Giants -1.5 (+185)
