The San Francisco Giants need to keep winning in order to hold on to their National League Wild Card spot. Saturday night will be game number three of a four game series with the San Diego Padres.
The Giants will have their Ace, Madison Bumgarner on the mound while the Padres will have Jarred Cosart on the hill.
San Diego Padres
Jarred Cosart will look to win for the first time in four starts Saturday as he takes the mound for the ninth time as a member of the Padres. He gave up 5 runs in only 3.2 innings of work his last time out against Rockies.
Since joining San Diego, Cosart has a record of 0-4 with a 5.63 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP throughout 56 innings. He has given up 10 runs in 8.1 innings throughout his career against San Francisco.
As a team, the Padres have been scoring 4.20 runs per game with a batting average of .234. Their pitching hasn’t exactly been up to par with a 4.41 team ERA.
They will need every bit of those numbers if they want to have any success against Bumgarner Saturday night.
San Francisco Giants
Madison Bumgarner will look to improve his record to 15-9 as he makes his 33rd start for the season Saturday. He dominated the Dodgers in his last outing, pitching seven innings of lights out baseball.
He was given a no decision for the game though due to a lack of production with the wood from the San Francisco batting order.
Bumgarner has had a great season despite hitting a couple bumps in August. he is 14-9 with a 2.57 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP throughout 213.1 innings.
In four games against the Padres this season, Bumgarner has gone 2-2 and only given up 10 runs in 28.1 innings. He has a career ERA of 3.27 against San Diego.
The Giants have had some struggles in the batter’s box as of late and are averaging 4.33 runs per game with a team batting average of .256.
The team has been led by their dominant pitching with a team ERA of 3.68.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
The San Francisco Giant’s currently hold a Wild Card position, but need to keep winning if they want to hold on to it. Bumgarner has been on fire from the mound and I don’t see San Diego doing anything with the bats to change that.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: San Francisco ML and game total over 7
Bumgarner has been able to pitch well all season long against the Padres, only allowing 10 runs in 28.1 innings. Due to the struggles Cosart has been dealing with as of late, I think the Giants will be able to improve their run and batting average a little in this one.
