San Francisco was able avoid the sweep with a 1-0 in Miami on Sunday. Alex Wood got his first start of the season and pitched 5 scoreless innings. Four relievers combined to pitch the last 4 innings to complete the shutout. From the dish they had 6 hits and were 1-10 with runners in scoring position. To start the season, the Giants have a .205 team batting average and .658 OPS. Evan Longoria leads the team with 4 home runs, 9 RBI and a .993 OPS.

Getting the start for the Giants will be righty Kevin Gausman. To start the season, he is 0-0 with a 3.20 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 18 strikeouts. In his career against this Phillies lineup, he has allowed a .437 batting average with 3 home runs in 67 at bats.

Philadelphia is 7-2 at home this season, 4-3 as the favorite, and the over is 9-6.

San Francisco is 4-5 on the road, 5-2 as the underdog, and the under is 11-4.

Looking at the pitching matchup, Anderson should give the Phillies the edge considering the success he has had against the Giants in the past. The Phillies are also 3-0 in home openers to start the season. With both bullpens about even and Philadelphia’s offense off to a better start, I will side with the home team in this one. Give me the Phillies to win.
