San Francisco, California
The Line: San Diego Padres -132 / San Francisco Giants +110 -- Over/Under: 7.5
The San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants meet Tuesday in MLB action at AT&T Park.
The San Diego Padres look for another win after winning four of their last five games. The Padres have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The San Diego Padres have won four straight games when scoring more than one run. Wil Myers leads the Padres with 12 hits and five RBI while Eric Hosmer and Manny Machado have combined for 20 hits and 11 RBI. Joey Lucchesi gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. Lucchesi is 2-0 with a 2.20 ERA and 24 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants need a victory here after losing five of their last six games. The Giants have allowed 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants are 1-7 this season when allowing three or more runs. Offensively, Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 10 hits while Steven Duggar and Brandon Belt have combined for 18 hits and 13 RBI. Derek Holland gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 5.00 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season. Holland is 1-3 with a 6.29 ERA and 34 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 7-21 in their last 28 during game 2 of a series, 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 2-6 in Lucchesi's last 8 starts with 5 days of rest. The Giants are 2-9 in their last 11 vs. National League West, 1-6 in their last 7 home games and 1-6 in Holland's last 7 starts. The Padres are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and the under is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 18-7-1 in Holland's last 26 starts overall. The over is 9-4-1 in Padres last 14 road games.
The San Diego Padres have their offense going these last couple of days, and they're throwing out a hot Lucchesi who has yet to give up a run in 10.1 innings and has 13 strikeouts. The San Francisco Giants just look like the same team from the last two seasons and they've lost eight of the last nine games in which Holland has pitched. As long as this lackluster baseball from the Giants continue where good at bats are hard to come by, I'll continue to back the other side. Give me the Padres on the road.
