The Seattle Mariners and San Francisco Giants face off on Tuesday in an interleague showdown at Oracle Park.The last time these two teams faced off was in 2018 and each team came away with two victories.
The San Francisco Giants haven’t had the best season but they come into this game playing well having won four games in a row over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Although the offense wasn’t great in any of the games, they did get good pitching, and that was enough to find success. At times the GIants have had to lean on their pitching a little too much. The Giants have used a balanced attack on offense with five different players putting up at least 21 RBI’s.
On the other side of the matchup is the Seattle Mariners who are one of the hottest teams in baseball right now winning six games in a row. Much like the Giants, this is a squad that has really leaned on their pitching staff to find success. Only twice during the winning streak have they scored six or more runs. The best player for the Mariners in the last game was Dylan Moore who had two hits and drove in four RBI’s.
The under is 8-2 in the Mariners last ten games played on Tuesday. The Mariners are 30-61 in the last 91 road games.The over is 6-2 in the Giants last eight games as a favorite. The Giants are 8-3 in their last 11 home games.
Ljay Newsome will get the start for the Giants and coming into this game he sits with a 0-0 record and an ERA of 2.57. Newsome has pitched seven innings so far this season.
On the mound for the Giants will be Logan Webb who comes into this game with a 2-3 record and an ERA of 4.71. On the season Webb has had 35 strikeouts.
These are two squads who have leaned on their pitching and that will be the case again in this one. Look for a low scoring game that stays well under the posted total.
