ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll stick with the Giants in this one. Webb is doing pretty well these days. Over his last three starts, Webb is 2-1 with five earned on four walks and 21 hits in 21.1 total innings. As for Pfaadt he’s struggled with 9.2 innings and 13 earned over his first pair. On Saturday San Francisco had a couple of bad innings and really didn’t cash in on any offensive opportunities. The Giants will need a good effort with the bats here, but I think they can get it done.
