Carlos Asuaje, Yangervis Solarte, Christian Villanueva, Cory Spangenberg and Hunter Renfroe each added base hits of their own in the win for San Diego.

The San Francisco Giants will try to finish the year on a high note after dropping game two on Saturday. Hunter Pence went 1 for 5, accounting for both Giants runs in the loss. Buster Posey went 2 for 4, while Denard Span, Pablo Sandoval and Ryder Jones each chipped in a base knock as none of the Giants’ six hits as a team went for extra bases in the losing effort. Matt Cain went five scoreless innings in his final career start, giving up just two hits while striking out four. Reyes Moronta received a blown save, while Sam Dyson gave up the game-tying and game-winning RBIs, taking the loss to fall to 4-10 this season with his 7th blown save. Johnny Cueto will start the finale and is 8-8 with a 4.43 ERA and 134 strikeouts this season. In his career, Cueto is 8-4 with a 3.09 ERA and 98 strikeouts against San Diego.
San Diego is 1-5 in their last 6 games overall and 2-9 in Perdomo’s last 11 division starts while the over is 5-1 in Perdomo’s last 6 starts against a team with a losing record. San Francisco is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 1-5 in Cueto’s last 6 home starts while the under is 8-2 in their last 10 division matchups. San Francisco is 5-1 in Cueto’s last 6 starts against San Diego.
With this game being strictly for pride and bragging rights, I’d advise putting your money elsewhere, but for the sake of a pick, the Giants have had success against San Diego with Cueto on the bump, and I think the Giants will want to send their fans home happy after such a poor season, so I’d lay the juice with San Fran if I had to.
