Giants vs. Pirates Free Pick 07/02/17
By: Scott Rickenbach
The Pirates couldn’t hit the Giants most hittable pitcher (Matt Moore) yesterday so that doesn’t bode well for Pittsburgh Sunday as they now face Jeff Samardzija after losing 2-1 in extra innings yesterday. Samardzija has an ugly record on the road but he’s certainly been victimized by some bad luck as he has a 1.12 WHIP away from home this season.
The Giants have won 5 straight games and Pittsburgh has lost 6 of its last 10. The Pirates also have lost 3 straight starts made by Trevor Williams. Also, in his start prior to this 3-game losing streak, Williams allowed 5 earned runs in just 4 innings of work.
Here we are getting a very reasonable price on the hotter team with the veteran hurler and we can fade a slumping team with an inexperienced pitcher whom has a 5.31 ERA at the MLB level so far in his career.
I’ll take it! Free Pick on San Francisco Giants on the money line early Sunday afternoon.
Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach
