The San Diego Padres will host the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night. The Giants won the first game of the series 3-2 on Monday night.

Not only did the Padres lose on Monday, but shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. went down with an injury and it is unclear how long he will be out for. As a team they managed to get 8 hits but were just 1-7 with runners in scoring position, stranding 12 on base. The bullpen pitched well, going 5 innings with just 1 run allowed. To start the year the the Padres have a .265 batting average. Eric Hosmer leads the team with 2 HR, 6 RBI and a .467 batting average.

Starting for the Padres on Tuesday is righty Yu Darvish. In 2020 he was 8-3 with a 2.01 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 93 strikeouts. In his one start this year he gave up 4 runs on 8 hits with 6 strikeouts.

San Francisco got back to .500 with their win last time out. Anthony DeSclafani started and went 5 innings allowing 1 run. Closer Jake McGee came in for his second save of the season. From the plate produced 3 home runs. Ruf and Yastrzemski each hit their first while Longoria went yard for the third time this year. So far this season the Giants are hitting .234 as a team and is tied for the league lead with 9 home runs. Donovan Solano leads the team with a .500 batting average.

The Giants will start righty Aaron Sanchez on Tuesday. He last pitched in 2019. That year he was 5-14 with a 5.89 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 115 strikeouts. During spring training he was 0-1 with a 7.94 ERA, 1.94 WHIP and 5 strikeouts.

The Padres are 5-5 in their last 5 regular season games, and the under is 6-4. The Giants are 5-5 in their last 5 regular season games, and the under is 4-5-1.

This game could be a high scoring affair. Giants starter Aaron Sanchez has not pitched in the regular season since 2019 and had a poor showing during spring. Now he will face a Padres lineup that is as good as any. The Giants have been hitting the ball well, and Padre starter Yu Darvish was hit hard in his last game. Both teams had to go deep into their bullpen Monday so they may not have all options available there. Give me the over.
