Starting Pitching Matchup
Bailey Falter will start for Philadelphia and is 0-6 with a 5.75 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. Alex Wood will start for San Francisco and is 0-0 with a 2.45 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season.
San Francisco’s 5-3 win back on September 4th, 2022, made it three straight wins for the Giants and six wins in the last seven meetings over Philadelphia in this head-to-head matchup.
Philadelphia is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall and 2-5 in their last 7 road games while the under is 6-1-1 in their last 8 games against a team with a left-handed starter. San Francisco is 1-4 in their last 5 games overall and 5-11 in their last 16 games following a loss while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a left-handed starter.
I’m backing the Giants here. This is a tough turnaround for the Phillies after a game at Coors Field on Sunday and there’s rumblings that the Phillies could be without Bryce Harper after his little dustup with the Rockies on Sunday. I’m also not a fan of Bailey Falter and the Phillies haven’t been able to win with him on the mound so far this season. All in all, I think the Giants find a way to get it done here so give me San Francisco.
