Giants Look To Take Rubber Match On The Road

Trying to help the club take the rubber match will be veteran righty, Ross Stripling. In 10 games, the 33-year-old is 0-2 with a 6.88 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, and he has 29 strikeouts in 35.1 innings. In his last three starts, he has given up a combined eight runs in 9.2 innings of work.

Offensively, the Giants rank 10th in the majors, averaging 4.83 runs per game. They are better on the road this year as they average 5.43 runs per game away from home.

Leading the offense is outfielder Michael Conforto. Despite hitting just .236/.333/.422, he leads the team with 12 home runs. He also has 42 runs batted in and 39 runs scored.

Mets Trying To Shake Disappointing First Half


The New York Mets might be one of the most disappointing teams in all of baseball. Despite going on an offseason spending spree, the Mets sit in fourth in the NL East, a whopping 18.5 games behind the Braves. They will try to shake their disappointing season at home, where they are 19-19 thus far.

Lefty David Peterson will take the ball in this one. In nine games, the 27-year-old is 2-6 with a 7.00 ERA, 1.69 WHIP, and he has 50 strikeouts in 45 innings. Peterson did pitch well in his last start, going six scoreless innings in a victory over the Brewers.

Pete Alonso continues to lead the charge in the Mets’ offense. In 277 at bats, he is hitting .217/.311/.505 with a team-leading 24 home runs and 55 runs batted in.

Francisco Lindor is also having a nice season, hitting .225/.305/.450 with 17 home runs and 55 runs batted in.

Take The Giants To Win


The Giants come into this one having gone 14-5 in their last 19 games. They are also 13-3 in their last 16 games against National League teams.

For the Mets, they are just 3-8 in their last 11 games and 2-6 in their last eight games at home.

While neither of these starting pitchers exactly inspire confidence, it is the Giants who have been playing better ball both lately and in the season as a whole. For that reason, take the Giants to continue their better play Sunday and to win the series.

Take the Giants to win straight up at -102.
