The San Francisco Giants look for another victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Giants have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The San Francisco Giants have won four straight games when scoring more than three runs. Buster Posey leads the Giants with 15 hits and eight RBI while Joe Panik and Andrew McCutchen have combined for 24 hits and 10 RBI. Ty Blach gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 4.11 ERA and six strikeouts this season. Blach is 0-2 with a 3.65 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres are in need of a victory after a brutal 4-10 start to the MLB season. The Padres have have allowed 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 13 games. The San Diego Padres are 3-9 this season when allowing more than one run. Offensively, Jose Pirela leads the Padres with 18 hits and five RBI while Eric Hosmer and Freddy Galvis have combined for 31 hits and eight RBI. Tyson Ross gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 5.25 ERA and nine strikeouts this season. Ross is 3-4 with a 3.61 ERA and 57 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 20-41 in their last 61 road games, 5-11 in their last 16 during game 2 of a series and 1-7 in Blachs last 8 starts. The Padres are 4-11 in their last 15 vs. National League West, 1-5 in Ross' last 6 home starts and 1-7 in Ross' last 8 starts. The Giants are 2-4 in the last 6 meetings in San Diego, 10-20 in the last 30 meetings and 0-4 in Blachs last 4 starts vs. Padres.
Neither one of these pitchers have gotten off to the best of starts, but there's no way I'm putting my money on the Padres, who started the season finding creative ways to lose and are now just getting beat up. The San Francisco Giants have been in pretty much every game this season, but the offense wasn't showing up. Well, we're now starting to see signs of the bats waking up, as they've scored four or more runs in five of their last eight games. Give me the Giants and the cheap price.
