The San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres will play a 3-game series at the Oracle Park. The Giants won their last series against the Rockies while the Padres beat the Phillies 2 of 3 times.
San Diego Padres
The Padres get here with a 24-14 record and have won 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.34 runs per game with a .227 at bat while allowing 3.87 runs. Manny Machado is leading the team with 7 home runs and 24 RBI and a batting average of .355.
Darvish (4-1) struck out five, walked none, allowed six hits and continued a run of solid starts. But it was the veteran right-hander's work in the sixth inning that helped the Padres win the series against the Phillies.
Sean Manaea (2-3, 3.77 ERA) will be on the mound for the Padres in the 1st game of the series. Manaea struck out 12 batters in seven innings Saturday against Atlanta, giving up three runs on six hits and two walks. He did not factor into the decision. He has a 2.77 ERA in his last 3 starts aginst the Giants.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants get here with a 22-15 record and have won 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 5.11 runs per game while allowing 4.16 runs. Wilmer Flores leads the team with 20 RBI and batting for an average of .267. Joc Pederson has 7 home runs.
Logan Webb leads the team with a 3.48 ERA and 28 strikeouts, recording 5 wins for the Giants.
Jakob Junis (1-1, 1.74 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 1st game of the series. DeSclafani won't be eligible to return until late June, and while the Giants usually have viable options for rotation depth, Junis should be able to stick in the rotation if he continues to pitch well over the next month. He has a 1.74 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 18:4 K:BB in 20.2 innings over four starts.
San Diego are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games against San Francisco.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of San Francisco's last 9 games.
