Over: 9.5 (-110) / Under: 9.5 (-110)
The San Francisco Giants and the Baltimore Orioles meet in the rubber match of their three game interleague set from Camden Yards in MLB action on Sunday.
The San Francisco Giants will look to win the series after picking up a win in game two on Saturday by a final score of 8-2. Brandon Belt went 2 for 3 with a double and four RBIs while Buster Posey had a solo home run and Evan Longoria, Mike Yastrzemski and Joe Panik each had an RBI to round out San Fran’s scoring as a team in the win. Kevin Pillar and Pablo Sandoval each had a double with Pillar adding a pair of two-baggers in the victory. Shaun Anderson got the win to improve to 1-1 on the year after giving up two runs on five hits while striking out four over seven innings of work. Jeff Samardzija will start game three and is 2-4 with a 3.83 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. In his career, Samardzija is 0-1 with a 5.49 ERA and 18 strikeouts against Baltimore.
The Baltimore Orioles will look to bounce back and take the set after dropping game two on Saturday. Renato Nunez had a solo home run while Austin Wynns added an RBI of his own to round out Baltimore’s scoring as a team in the losing effort. Trey Mancini went 2 for 4 at the plate while Rio Ruiz chipped in a base hit as well in the defeat. David Hess took the loss, falling to 1-7 on the year after allowing seven runs on six hits while walking three and striking out four over four innings of work. Gabriel Ynoa will start game three and is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. This will be Ynoa’s first career start against San Francisco.
San Francisco is 2-8 in Samardzija’s last 10 road starts and 27-55 in their last 82 games overall while the over is 9-4 in their last 13 road games. Baltimore is 14-38 in their last 52 games overall and 16-39 in their last 55 home games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a right-handed starter.
Samardzija is the more experienced pitcher here as Ynoa just has 21.2 innings under his belt this season and in all honesty, Ynoa has been shelled in quite a few of his appearances this season. However, Samardzija is coming off of his worst start of the season in his own right and isn’t worth being a road favorite even against Baltimore. Instead, I’m going to side with the over as we’ve seen both teams wake up offensively in the first two games of the set and I think given the pitching matchup, we could be in store for another high-scoring affair on Sunday.
