The San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at Petco Park. On Monday it was the Padres offense that broke out late and were able to secure the victory. 

The Giants come into this game with an 80-80 record overall but it was their pitching staff that really hurt them late in the game Monday and led to hte loss. The Giants' stats are probably better than what the offense shows. The Giants come into this game averaging 4.42 runs per game which is 11th best in the league. Wilmer Flores has hit 19 home runs and driven in 71 RBIs so far this year.

The Padres are back in the playoffs, but their offense is going to need to be better if they want to make it out of the first round of the playoffs. The Padres are averaging 4.35 runs per game which is 14th in the league. Manny Machado has hit 32 home runs and driven in 101 RBIs so far this year. 

On the mound for the Padres will be Sean Manaea and he sits with a 7-9 record and an ERA of 5.15. In his last start against the Dodgers, he went four innings giving up two hits and one run. 

On the mound for the Giants will be Carlos Rodon who sits with a 14-9 record adnd an ERA of 2.88. In his last start against the Rockies, he went six innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

The Giants are 8-1 in their last nine road games. The under is 5-0-1 in the Padres last six games overall. Under is 8-0-1 in Padres last 9 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. The Under is 4-0 in Rodons last 4 starts with 4 days of rest.

All the trends point towards the under and it was a low scoring game on Monday until the last couple of innings. Manaea is coming off a start where he gave up only one run, and Rodon is coming off a start where he gave up zero runs. This is going to be a low scoring game, and the under will cash here with ease. 

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