Corey's Free Pick

The pitching matchup has a chance to go a long way here. With the Mets sending Joey Lucchesi out for his first MLB action in nearly two years, Anthony DeSclafani’s form feels trustworthy in this spot. The veteran pitcher showed flashes of this in his first season in the Bay back in 2021, and he should definitely give the Giants an upper hand on the mound. If he’s able to contain a talented Mets lineup, it should come down to a matter of run support and how much success SFG can have against a possibly rusty Lucchesi. Spot San Fran the runs for safety here.
