The San Diego Padres look to win back-to-back games for the second time this month. The Padres have allowed 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The San Diego Padres have lost 13 of their last 16 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Wil Myers leads the Padres with 109 hits and 60 RBI while Manuel Margot and Cory Spangenberg have combined for 205 hits and 79 RBI. Travis Wood gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 6.03 ERA and 56 strikeouts this season. Wood is 1-3 with a 2.96 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 6-2 in their last 8 Wednesday games, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 1-5 in Blachs last 6 road starts. The Padres are 9-21 in their last 30 vs. National League West, 0-4 in their last 4 games vs. a left-handed starter and 1-4 in their last 5 home games. The Giants are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings and the over is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Blach has allowed a combined 16 runs in his last three games and Wood is giving up nearly a .300 batting average this season and has an ERA of 5.33 in the month of August. No, thank you. You can't find much of an advantage in either one of these guys with how hard they've been hit this season. Once again I'm going to side with the over between these two teams.
