San Francisco Giants vs New York Mets Prediction

I’ll just stay with the Giants here. San Francisco should get a good start out of Webb. In his last trio Webb is 1-1 with four earned runs in 19.0 total innings. As for Manaea, he’s done pretty well himself lately. Manaea is 2-0 in his last three starts with six earned runs in 17.0 combined innings.

On Saturday the Giants pulled off the improbable comeback with with a stellar output in the 10th inning. Mike Yastrzemski led the way on three RBI, and Patrick Bailey added two RBI with a run. I like San Francisco to ride that momentum into the finale.
