The San Francisco Giants will play the New York Yankees in Game 3 of their series on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium in Bronx, New York. 

Giants Preview

The San Francisco Giants are 1-1 this season after they defeated the New York Yankees by a score of 7-5 on Saturday. The San Francisco pitching staff has a 4.76 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a .261 opponent batting average this season. The Giants offense has scored seven runs with a .232 batting average and a .312 on base percentage. Brandon Crawford has led the Giants with a .375 batting average, one home run, and three RBI’s. The projected starting pitcher for San Francisco is Ross Stripling, who was 10-4 with a 3.01 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP last year. 

Yankees Preview

The New York Yankees are 1-1 this season after their loss to San Francisco on Saturday, but they did win Game 1 of this series on Thursday. The New York pitching staff has a 3.50 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP, and a .232 opponent batting average. The Yankees offense has scored 10 runs with a .261 batting average and a .311 on base percentage this year. Aaron Judge is batting .556 with one home run and three RBI’s for the Yankees this season. The projected starting pitcher for New York is Jhony Brito. 

Trends

San Francisco is 5-0 in their last 5 game three’s of a series and 35-17 in their last 52 Sunday games. The under is 4-0 in San Francisco’s last 4 Sunday games. New York is 5-2 in their last 7 Sunday games and 4-2 in their last 6 games against the NL West. The under is 6-2 in New York’s last 8 home games. The under is 10-1 in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings in New York. 

Pick

Both of these teams have won a game in this series and they will be looking to get the series win with a victory in this matchup. New York will be starting Jhony Brito, who will be making his MLB debut. The Giants will turn to Ross Stripling, who actually had a very solid season last year. New York has scored five runs in each of the first two games and I think that offense will continue, but I also think the Giants will get to Brito early. I like the over in this one. 

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