The San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics meet Sunday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum. The San Francisco Giants need a win after losing 5 of their last 8 games. The Oakland Athletics look for a win after splitting their last 10 games.
The San Francisco Giants have scored 10 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Giants have won 4 of their last 5 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Wilmer Flores leads the Giants with 87 hits and 56 RBI, while Thario Estrada and Mike Yastrzemski have combined for 150 hits and 79 RBI. Logan Webb gets the ball, and he is 9-5 with a 3.20 ERA and 110 strikeouts this season. Webb is 0-2 with a 6.87 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
The Oakland Athletics have scored 14 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 of their last 6 games. The Athletics have lost 5 of their last 7 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Sean Murphy leads the Athletics with 87 hits and 48 RBI, while Elvis Andrus and Seth Brown have combined for 155 hits and 74 RBI. Adrian Martinez gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 6.52 ERA and 14 strikeouts this season. This will be Martinez’s first career game against the Giants.
The Giants are 19-9 in their last 28 Sunday games and 3-13 in their last 16 road games. The Athletics are 6-1 in their last 7 home games and 9-4 in their last 13 overall. The over is 5-1 in Giants last 6 Sunday games. The under is 4-1 in Athletics last 5 overall. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Oakland.
The San Francisco Giants are going to be favored for obvious reasons. They’re the better team, and they have Logan Webb on the mound. Adrian Martinez also hasn’t lit the world on fire this season and has pitched just 14 innings since June. However, I’m not laying these sorts of prices with the Giants with how sloppy they’ve been in the second half of the season. It’s A’s and the big plus money or pass for me.
