The San Francisco Giants got out to an early start and they never let the Mets in the game on Friday to get the win. Hunter Pence, Buster Posey, and Pablo Sandoval each had hits as the Giants scored five runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong had it working as he allowed two hits and a run while striking out five over the full 9.0 innings to get the win. For Saturday’s game the Giants start Jake Peavy who makes his second start since being traded from Boston. In his first outing for San Francisco Peavy allowed six hits and four runs, three earned, over 6.0 innings to take the loss against the Dodgers.
New York is 5-1 as a home favorite, 5-2 in their last seven home games, and 4-0 in deGrom’s last four starts. San Francisco is 7-2 against a right-handed starter, 6-2 in their last eight road games, and 2-6 in their last eight games. San Francisco is 5-1 in their last six games in New York.
I am not expecting a lot of offense in this one so even with the low number I like the under. My Stronger play is on the winning side and I will post that Pick in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
