The San Francisco Giants look to solidify their playoff hopes with a win at the San Diego Padres on Tuesday.
The San Francisco Giants begin the stretch drive looking to go on a season ending hot streak. The Giants knocked off Arizona 5-1 Sunday to avoid getting swept at home. Veteran Tim Hudson came up big with a four hits shutout over six frames to even his record at 8-8 and the offense didn’t waste the effort. SF mustered six hits and walked four times with Buster Posey clubbing a three run bomb while Matt Duffy scored twice. Christopher Heston gets Tuesday’s start against the Padres for the 4th time this year. Heston did not get a decision in a 9-8 loss to Cincinnati with three runs scored on three hits and four BB in five frames.

The San Diego Padres had held out hopes of finishing the season at .500 but that would be a stretch right now. The Padres will be shooting for consecutive victories following a 10-4 win at Coors Field on Sunday. Everything went well with starter James Shields holding the Rockies to four runs on two hits and four BB through 6.2 innings. The offense amassed 15 hits with Matt Kemp, Yangervis Solarte, Cory Spangenberg and Jedd Gyorko each slamming long balls. Tyson Ross gets the series opening start against San Francisco for the third time on the year. Ross did not receive a decision in a 6-4 loss at Arizona with a lone run allowed over six innings.
San Francisco are 5-16 in their last 21 road games. The over is 8-1 in San Diego’s last 9 vs. National League West and is 16-5-1 in their last 22 games following a win while going 36-13-2 in their last 51 overall. San Francisco are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in San Diego. I’m not real fond of this because I’m taking Ross who can lose if he throws a no hitter…
