The San Diego Padres have have lost 12 of their last 14 games when scoring less than four runs.

The Giants are 5-1 in their last 6 Tuesday games, 3-10 in Moores last 13 road starts and 7-17 in Moores last 24 starts. The Padres are 4-0 in their last 4 Tuesday games, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 5-2 in Perdomos last 7 home starts. The Giants are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in San Diego and the over is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings.
Good luck picking this game. Not only are both of these clubs struggling and don't string wins together, but Moore has an ERA over six on the road and Perdomo has an ERA over five with a .273 batting average at home. The numbers indicate this is going to be a heavy offensive game, so instead of trying to decide which pitcher will stink less, I'll go ahead and side with the over on the reasonable total.
