San Francisco Giants vs Philadelphia Phillies Prediction

I’ll try the Giants here. Probably not touching this one, though. Webb had some trouble in his last start, giving up four earned on nine hits and three walks over 3.2 frames in a loss to the Red Sox. Prior to that however, Webb had zero earned in 15.0 innings over two starts, going 2-0 in that pair. As for Walker, he was shaky in his first appearance of 2024 but should be better here.

On Saturday the Giants got off to a pretty horrendous start but only had one bad inning after that. San Francisco should have a good shot at a rebound if they can keep the bats going.
