The San Diego Padres and the San Francisco Giants will meet on Saturday for game two of their series from sunny San Diego. All odds for all games are constantly updated at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Padres have been competitive and played hard most of the season, but were the opposite of that in a loss on Friday. They had just four hits and only scored one run and their pitching was dreadful as well. They will look to bounce back behind the arm of Eric Stultz tonight. Stultz has won his last two starts and will be returning to the rotation from a stint in the bullpen. In just 44 innings of work Stultz is pitching to a 2.45 ERA.
The Giants on the other hand are back in first place in the NL West after their win on Friday. They scored 10 runs on 15 hits and Matt Cain was brilliant on the mound to raise his record to 12-5 on the season. Tonight the Giants will start Barry Zito who as usual has had an up-and-down all season. He is pitching to a 4.29 ERA in 134 innings of work.
San Diego is 4-1 in their last five home games, 0-4 in their last four games overall, and 2-6 in their last eight game two of a series. San Francisco is 6-1 in their last seven games against the NL West, 6-1 in their last seven games against a team with a losing record, and 4-1 in Zito’s last five starts against the NL West. San Francisco is 18-6 in their last 24 games against the Padres.
We expect a pretty close game and the odds dictate that. Give us the Giants as the slight road favorite in this game at online sportsbook usa.
