The San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants meet Friday in MLB game two of an MLB doubleheader at Oracle Park.
The San Diego Padres need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Padres have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Padres have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs. Manny Machado leads the Padres with 67 hits and 47 RBI while Fernando Tatis Jr. and Wil Myers have combined for 114 hits and 79 RBI. Chris Paddack gets the ball, and he is 4-4 with a 4.23 ERA and 55 strikeouts this season. Paddack is 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Giants have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last five games. The Giants have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Donovan Solano leads the Giants with 60 hits and 29 RBI while Mike Yastrzemski and Wilmer Flores have combined for 99 hits and 59 RBI. The San Francisco Giants didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Chris Paddack has allowed five runs and nine hits in his last 9.2 innings, and he has three walks and 13 strikeouts during that span. On the season, Chris Paddack has a .246 allowed batting average and a .288 on base percentage. On the road this season through 24.2 innings, Paddack has a 4.38 ERA and a .258 allowed batting average. Not a horrible season, but Paddack has been more than hittable and isn't a guy I'm running to the window to back right now. The San Diego Padres have gone ice cold as of late and I'm nut sure I trust Paddack on the road.
I'll give the Giants the slight edge at home in game two of this doubleheader.
