The San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres will play the second game of the series at the Petco Park on Friday night. The Padres took the win on Thursday's game in a very close game. San Diego won it in the 10th on pinch-hitter Jorge Alfaro's bases-loaded single.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants get here with a 41-40 record and have lost 7 of their last 8 games. The team is averaging 4.7 runs per game and they're batting for .236 AVG, 377 runs scored in 627 hits and 93 home runs, ranking #6 in offense in the league behind the Atlanta Braves. Joc Pederson leads the team with 17 home runs and 41 RBI. Yastrzemski is batting for an average of .269.
Defensively they are allowing 4.45 runs per game and rank #20 in the league. Carlos Rodon leads the pitching staff with a 2.87 ERA, 112 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded.
Sam Long (0-1, 1.78 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 2nd game of the series. Long earned his first career save with the final out on Wednesday in Arizona, and he's now set to start Friday's game. He pitched three scoreless frames in his previous outing on Sunday, which tied him for his longest outing of the season, so he's unlikely to last much longer as a starter. He has an ERA of 0.00 in 2 appearances against the Padres in his career.
San Diego Padres
The Padres get here with a 48-36 record and have lost 5 of their last 7 games. The team is averaging 4.45 runs per game and they're batting for .241 AVG, have 369 runs scored in 678 hits and 68 home runs, ranking #14 in offense in the league behind the Colorado Rockies. Manny Machado is leading the team with 12 home runs and 46 RBI and a batting average of .316.
Defensively they are allowing 3.87 runs per game and rank #5 in the league. Joe Musgrove leads the pitching staff with a 2.25 ERA, 92 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded for the Padres.
Blake Snell (0-5, 5.13 ERA) will be on the mound for the Padres in the 2nd game of the series. In a no-decision against the Dodgers on Friday, Snell allowed one run on four hits and four walks while striking out 12. He has a record of 1-0 with an ERA of 4.30 and 19 strikeouts in 3 appearances against the Giants in his career.
San Francisco Giants are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of San Francisco's last 6 games when playing on the road against San Diego.
The total has gone OVER in 14 of San Diego's last 21 games against San Francisco.
San Diego Padres are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games at home.
As expected, both offenses struggled against the two aces yesterday and scored only 3 runs combined in the game. The Giants will send Sam Long as a starter but he'll most likely pitch around 3 innings. The Padres are sending Blake Snell to the mound who's coming from a great game against the Dodgers were he allowed only 1 run across 5 innings pitched. With both offenses still struggling I think the best play for this game is the under.
PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
