The San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres meet Wednesday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The San Francisco Giants need a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Giants have scored 33 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The San Francisco Giants have won seven straight games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 77 hits and 46 RBI while Joe Panik and Evan Longoria have combined for 125 hits and 56 RBI. Shaun Anderson gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 3.86 ERA and 29 strikeouts this season. This will be Anderson’s second career game against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Padres have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The San Diego Padres have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 97 hits and 60 RBI while Manny Machado and Franmil Reyes have combined for 152 hits and 99 RBI. Cal Quantrill gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 4.66 ERA and 32 strikeouts this season. This will be Quantrill's first career game against the Giants.
The Giants are 16-35 in their last 51 during game 3 of a series and 5-17 in their last 22 Wednesday games. The Padres are 11-5 in their last 16 Wednesday games, 1-8 in their last 9 during game 3 of a series and 5-2 in their last 7 home games. The Giants are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-1-3 in Padres last 8 overall. The over is 6-1 in Giants last 7 road games.
Anderson has been solid lately, allowing three or less runs in each of his last six games, and he's been better on the road than at home where he has a 3.65 ERA and .253 allowed batting average. Quantrill has been hit or miss in his limited rookie action, but he has a little bit of a walk issue and is allowing a .300 batting average in 17.1 innings at home this season. Not thrilled about this pitching matchup, but we're getting plus money with a Giants team that's all of a sudden found some offense. I can't believe I said that. I'm taking advantage of hot bats in San Francisco while I still can.
