The San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants meet Friday in game one of an MLB doubleheader at Oracle Park.
The San Diego Padres need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Padres have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Padres have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs. Manny Machado leads the Padres with 67 hits and 47 RBI while Fernando Tatis Jr. and Wil Myers have combined for 114 hits and 79 RBI. Dinelson Lamet gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 2.07 ERA and 89 strikeouts this season. Lamet is 1-1 with a 2.70 ERA and 23 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Giants have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last five games. The Giants have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Donovan Solano leads the Giants with 60 hits and 29 RBI while Mike Yastrzemski and Wilmer Flores have combined for 99 hits and 59 RBI. Tyler Anderson gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 4.53 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 2-2 with a 2.56 ERA and 40 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Dinelson Lamet has allowed five runs and 16 hits in his last 27 innings while Tyler Anderson has allowed eight earned runs and 18 hits in his last 17.2 innings. The San Diego Padres need a feel good victory to break out of this recent slump, and it's safe to say they have the more consistent starting pitcher on the mound in game one of this doubleheader. Dinelson Lamet is allowing a .166 batting average on the season and is averaging 12.3 strikeouts per nine innings.
I'll take the San Diego Padres to draw first blood in this two game contest on Friday night.
