The San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres will meet again to play a 3-game series at the Petco Park. The Giants won their last series against the Athletics while the Padres were swept by the Dodgers on the road. The Padres lead 6-4 in the last 9 head to head games this season vs Giants.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants get here with a 53-55 record and have lost 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.57 runs per game and they're batting for .235 AVG, 471 runs scored in 798 hits and 118 home runs, ranking #9 in offense in the league behind the Milwaukee Brewers. Joc Pederson leads the team with 17 home runs and 44 RBI. Thairo Estrada is batting for an average of .262.
Defensively they are allowing 4.37 runs per game and rank #18 in the league. Carlos Rodon leads the pitching staff with a 2.95 ERA, 161 strikeouts and 10 wins recorded.
Alex Wood (7-9, 4.42 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 1st game of the series. Wood took the loss during Tuesday's 9-5 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing six runs on nine hits and one walk with six strikeouts in 5.1 innings. He has a 5-3 record with an ERA of 3.12 and 87 strikeouts in 19 appearances against the Padres in his career.
San Diego Padres
The Padres get here with a 61-50 record and have lost 4 games in a row. The team is averaging 4.37 runs per game and they're batting for .240 AVG, have 449 runs scored in 835 hits and 89 home runs, ranking #15 in offense in the league behind the Houston Astros. Manny Machado is leading the team with 19 home runs and 60 RBI and a batting average of .289.
Defensively they are allowing 4.08 runs per game and rank #9 in the league. Joe Musgrove leads the pitching staff with a 3.00 ERA, 120 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded for the Padres.
Probable Pitcher: Blake Snell (4-5, 4.16 ERA)
Snell will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Padres. Snell earned the win over Colorado on Wednesday, allowing one run on four hits and no walks while striking out nine batters over six innings. He is 2-0 with an ERA of 3.48 and 30 strikeouts in 4 appearances versus the Giants in his career.
San Francisco Giants are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of San Francisco's last 8 games when playing on the road against San Diego.
San Diego Padres are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of San Diego's last 7 games against an opponent in the National League.
The renewed Padres team was dominated by the Dodgers in the weekend series taking the sweep but are 6-4 against the Giants so far this season. Blake Snell will take the mound for San Diego who has been solid in his last 3 starts allowing 1 run or less and dominated the Giants earlier this season. The Giants have been up and down this season and have lost 7 of their last 9 games on the road. Alex Wood struggled in his last start allowing 6 runs vs Dodgers but pitched 7 scoreless innings the last time he faced the Padres. This should be a close game and with the Padres struggling offensively I think the best play is the under.
PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
