The San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants meet Sunday in MLB action at Oracle Park.
The San Diego Padres look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Padres have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Padres have won four of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Manny Machado leads the Padres with 68 hits and 47 RBI while Fernando Tatis Jr. and Wil Myers have combined for 117 hits and 83 RBI. The San Diego Padres didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Giants have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Giants have won six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Donovan Solano leads the Giants with 62 hits and 29 RBI while Mike Yastrzemski and Wilmer Flores have combined for 107 hits and 66 RBI. Drew Smyly gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 3.38 ERA and 32 strikeouts this season. Smyly is 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Drew Smyly has allowed five earned runs and 10 hits in his last 13 innings, and he's allowing a .207 batting average on the season with 32 strikeouts and eight walks. In 9.1 innings at home this season, Drew Smyly has a 2.89 ERA and .200 allowed batting average. In 62 at bats against current Padres hitters, Drew Smyly is allowing a .107 batting average with .116 on base percentage and 16 strikeouts. The San Diego Padres didn't announce a starting pitcher at the time this article was published, but I'm going to assume it will be a bit of a throwaway game, as they want to have all their key pieces on deck for the upcoming playoff series.
I'll take a shot with the Giants in this spot.
