The San Francisco Giants are playing .500 baseball the past few weeks which has been good enough to maintain first in the National League West. The Giants have won two of three following a 1-0 victory at Miami on Wednesday behind a strong performance on the mound. SF starter Jeff Samardzija was at his best with 5.2 scoreless innings to improve to 10-8 with four relievers holding the Marlins off the scoreboard. The Giants managed six hits and five walks with Brandon Crawford connecting on his 11th homer. Veteran Matt Cain hopes to stay hot when he opposes visiting Baltimore on Friday night. Cain has not allowed a run on five hits and seven BB covering ten frames (two starts).
The under is 24-4 in Baltimore’s last 28 overall and is 21-5 in their last 26 on grass while the Orioles are 13-5 in their last 18 interleague games. The under is 18-7-1 in San Francisco’s last 26 on grass and is 18-7-1 in their last 26 overall while the Giants are 21-10 in their last 31 home games. Cain looks unbeatable right?
