The Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Oracle Park. The Giants have won the first two games of this series. 

The Phillies sit with a 73-60 record but they are going to keep messing around and miss the playoffs. The first two games of this series the pitching hasn’t been good enough and that will need to be improved upon here. The Phillies are averaging 4.71 runs per game which is 5th best in the league. Kyle Schwarber has hit 36 home runs and driven in 78 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Giants who sit with a 63-68 record overall and they have won the two games in a row. On Friday the offense scored 13 runs and on Saturday they won 5-4. The Gaints are averaging 4.47 runs per game which is 12th in the league. Joc Pederson is having a big season hitting 21 home runs and driving in 61 RBIs. Wilmer Flores has hit 16 home runs and driven in 61 RBis. 

On the mound for the Phillies will be Ranger Suarez who sits with an 8-5 record and an ERA of 3.42. In his last start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, he went 3.2 innings giving up five hits and six runs. 

On the mound for the Giants will be Carlos Rodon who sits with a 12-7 record and an ERA of 3.03 In his last start against the Diego Padres he went four innings giving up four hits and five runs. 

The Phillies are 8-2 in their last 10 games against a left-handed starter. The Giants are 2-7 in their last nine games on grass. The over is 4-0 in the Giants last four Sunday games. The over is 4-1 in the Phillies' last five road games. 

I don’t trust Suarez or the Phillies. Suarez in his last start gave up six runs in 3.2 innings and the Giants bats are going to find offensive success in this game. Look for the Giants bats to be strong in this game, and Rodon is going to lower his 3.03 ERA. Back the Giants to win this game.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
