San Francisco Giants vs Philadelphia Phillies Prediction

I’ll stay with Philly. Suarez is doing great this year. Over his last three starts, he’s 3-0 with 24.0 total innings, one earned, 12 hits and two walks. Suarez went 7.0 or more innings in each of those outings. As for Winn, he’s 3-0 in his last trio himself, going 18.0 total innings (6.0 in each) with just three earned. This should be a great starter matchup.

On Friday Philadelphia didn’t have the biggest offensive night, but a couple of productive innings carried the team to victory alongside a nice pitching effort. The bullpen was great between five different pitchers, combining for four hits, one earned, no walks and seven Ks. I like the Phillies to keep it up on Saturday. Should be another close game.
