San Francisco Giants Recap

The San Francisco Giants come into this one looking to build on their series-opening 5-2 win over the Rangers from Friday. The win helped the Giants start to right the ship after series losses to the Diamondbacks and Yankees over the last week.

Giants Starting To Heat Up Offensively

Going into Friday’s matchup, Thairo Estrada leads the Giants with 57 hits along with a team-high 8 home runs and 32 RBIs while also chipping in 12 doubles. Michael Conforto has 41 hits with 7 home runs, 7 doubles and 20 RBIs while Matt Chapman has a team-high 57 hits of his own alongside 17 doubles with 8 homers, 28 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. Chapman also has the dubious distinction of leading the Giants with 60 strikeouts this season.

San Francisco Giants vs Texas Rangers Prediction

I’m on the Giants here. I think San Francisco simply has more upside in this matchup and frankly, I’m done trusting the Rangers to do anything right now. Maybe they’ll turn the corner at some point and look like the team that went on the run to the World Series last year, but I’m at a point where I’ll believe it when I see it. San Francisco has some solid numbers against lefties right now, and I think they can get to Heaney, who has been one of the least profitable starters in baseball up to this point in the year. Give me San Francisco.
