For much of the season the NL West has been a pretty close race, but the Giants have taken control of the division, as they have been on fire. They have won 9 of their last 11 games including their last 2.
San Francisco sits atop the division with a 4 game lead over the Colorado Rockies.
The Padres had their modest 2-game winning streak snapped in their last game and they are in the basement of the division 7.5 games back of the Giants.
These teams met recently in a 3-game set in San Diego with the Giants sweeping the series.
In their last games the Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 1-0 and the Padres lost to the L.A. Dodgers 9-5 in 17 innings.
San Diego Padres
The Padres pitching has been pretty decent this season ranking 13th in team ERA, but they only rank 26th in runs scored.
Tonight’s starter Drew Pomeranz (4-4 1.96 ERA) has been one of the bright spots for the Padres on the season and in his last outing he gave up 2 earned runs in 6 innings in a 2-1 loss to the Giants. In his previous 2 starts, which were both San Diego wins, he did not give up any earned runs.
Pomeranz has already faced the Giants twice this season and in the 2 Padres losses he has given up 5 earned runs in 10 innings of work.
Pomeranz has a legit ERA of 1.13 ERA in his last 4 starts, but is only 2-2 and in that span he has only received 4 runs of support.
The Padres are 9-11 on the road this season.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants rank tied for 9th in the Majors in both runs scored and team ERA. They have been winning with their pitching lately, as they are only batting .163 with runners in scoring position in their last 14 games.
Johnny Cueto (6-1 2.70 ERA) goes for the Giants tonight and his last start was opposing Pomeranz and he had a complete game only giving up 1 earned run in the 2-1 San Francisco win. The Giants have won his last 5 games and 9 of 10 games on the season with him on the mound.
Giants starters have a 1.90 ERA over the last 6 games facing the Padres.
Cueto is 6-1 with a 1.67 ERA with 54 strikeouts in his last 7 starts against San Diego.
The Giants have won 14 of their last 17 games facing the Padres.
