The St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Oracle Park. In the first game of this series, it was the Cardinals that secured the 7-1 victory. The Cardinals scored four runs in the 7th inning and that was the difference in the victory. 

The Cardinals come into this game with a 15-10 record overall and they have looked especially impressive in the last two games. Over the last two games, the Cardinals have outscored their opponents 17-1. In three of the last four games the Cardinals have given up one run or less. Nolan Arenado has been the top player for the Cardinals hitting seven home runs and driving in 23 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Giants who sit with a 14-11 record overall but they have lost four games in a row. In each of the last three games, the Giants have only scored one run and they need to get the offense going here. The Giants aren’t really known for their offense, There are four different players that have driven in at least 10 RBIs. Thairo Estrada has been the top player for the Giants hitting two home runs and driving in 14 RBIs.

On the mound for the Giants is Alex Cobb who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 5.40. In his last start against the Washington Nationals, Cobb went 0.2 innings giving up four hits and five runs. 

Getting the start for the Cardinals will be Jordan Hicks and he sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 3.65. In his last start against the Diamondbacks, he went 3.1 innings giving up two hits and two runs. 

The Cardinals are 6-1 in their last seven games played on Friday. The over is 4-1 in the Giants last five games. The over is 5-1 in the Giants last six home games against a team with a right-handed starter. 

The Giants have only scored three runs total over their last three games, and with the bats being so ice cold, I don’t trust them to find a whole lot of success in this game. Alex Cobb struggled in his last start, and the Cardinals will get to him here. Back the Cardinals on the money line.
