Tonight the Padres are back at Oracle Park for game three of four in this NL West divisional battle.  The Padres lost games one and two and find themselves in a 5 game hole where they're averaging a paltry 1.2 runs per game.  They've been both shut out and held to a single run on two occasions each during this five-game losing run.  They need a response if they're to have any hope of joining the two teams ahead of them in the division who have both sealed playoff spots. The Giants have dominated the first two games of this series winning 9-1 on Monday and 6-1 last night.  They're now on a nine-game winning streak and show no signs of letting up as they aim to dethrone the Dodgers as the champions of the NL West.  The Dodgers themselves have now booked their place in the playoffs, but are only three games behind the Giants in the race for the division crown and automatic berth. 

Pitching matchup


Joe Musgrove (10-9, 2.93 ERA) Joe Musgrove is slated to start his 28th game of the season for the Padres.  Musgrove is 10-9 with a 2.93 and a 1.01 WHIP and is the joint leader for shutouts in the MLB this season with two.  He's already played the Giants twice this season pitching a total of ten innings and surrendering 12 hits for nine ERs and also claimed 13 strikeouts compared to only walking two.


Dominic Leone (3-3, 1.41 ERA) Dominic Leone will start for only the 4th time this season.  Leone has played 46 games in 2021 and has a 1.41 ERA along with a 1.03 WHIP over 44.2 innings pitched.  He also gave up 26 hits for only seven ERs and walked 20 batters while striking out 41.  He gave up a single hit for no ERs across one innings in his only game against the Padres this season. 


This series has gone as expected so far with full domination by the Giants who are the best team in baseball right now.  The Padres bats are too cold right now to mount a serious challenge in this series. It'll be another Giants win at home tonight.

PICK: Giants run line +1.0 (-137)
