The San Francisco Giants are looking to go on a run to chase down the National League West leading Dodgers. The Giants couldn’t get their 4th straight win Sunday as the work on the mound and at the plate came up short against visiting St Louis. Starter Ryan Vogelsong was charged with four runs on seven hits and a trio of free passes through 4.2 innings to absorb the loss. Mike Broadway allowed two 9th inning runs and the Giants seven hit, three walk attack wasn’t enough to stay competitive. Gregor Polanco had two hits and Kelby Tomlinson walked two times while Brandon Belt had a hit and BB. Christopher Heston draws his second consecutive start against the visiting Cardinals. Heston had control issues in a 2-1 defeat where he gave up a run on four hits and five BB over 4.1 innings.
The over is 6-1-2 in St Louis last 9 road games and is 5-1-3 in their last 9 overall while the over is 5-1-3 in their last 9 on grass. The under is 7-0-1 in the Giants last 8 Sunday games and is 5-1-2 in their last 8 games as an underdog while San Francisco are 21-6 in their last 27 home games. The over is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings. Right now I’m leaning Cardinals but I can’t find a big edge anywhere…
