Toronto Blue Jays vs San Francisco Giants Prediction 

San Francisco comes into this game three games below .500 on the season, but they are 25-19 at home and play their best baseball at Oracle Park. The Giants offense has been decent this season, but their pitching staff has not done their part. San Francisco will hope Blake Snell can find his form from past seasons, as he has really struggled this year. Toronto is just 20-25 on the road this season and their offense is one of the lowest scoring in the MLB. Toronto is starting Kikuchi, who has also struggled in recent outings. I don’t love this pitching matchup for either side, but I do think the Giants at home is the play. My Toronto Blue Jays vs San Fransisco Giants prediction is for the Giants to pick up the win.
