The San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres will play the 2nd game of the series at the Petco Park on Tuesday night. The Giants took the win 1-0 in the first game of the series. Alex Wood held San Diego to three singles in 6 1/3 innings and the Giants benefited from an overturned call at the plate to beat the struggling Padres.

The Giants get here with a 54-55 record and have won their last 3 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.

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 Cobb (3-6, 4.38 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 2nd game of the series. Cobb was tagged with the loss against the Dodgers on Wednesday, pitching 6.1 innings and allowing three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out eight batters. He has a record of 1-0 with an ERA of 4.66 and 23 strikeouts in 2 appearances versus the Padres in his career.
San Diego Padres
The Padres get here with a 61-51 record and have lost 5 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: Joe Musgrove (8-5, 3.00 ERA)
Musgrove will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Padres. Musgrove allowed six earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six across 4.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Rockies. He has a record of 3-3 with an ERA of 3.66 and 50 strikeouts in 9 appearances versus the Giants in his career.
San Francisco Giants are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of San Francisco's last 9 games when playing on the road against San Diego.
San Diego Padres are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games at home.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of San Diego's last 9 games when playing at home against San Francisco.
The continue to struggle offensively as they haven't scored in their last 24 innings played but honestly I think that bad streak will end tonight. Alex Cobb will take the mound for the Giants and he hasn't been bad but the Giants have lost in 4 of his last 5 starts and has allowed 8 runs in 18 innings while Joe Musgrove will start for the Padres who has absolutely dominated the Giants this season as he hasn't allowed a single run across 14 innings pitched. Expect a reaction from the Padres and to finally get a win.
PICK: Padres -1.5 (+115)
