San Diego Padres
The Padres season has been over for a while and it is easy to see why as this is the worst hitting team in the Majors with a batting average of .235.
They do run into one on occasion which is why they are only 21st in runs scored. Rookie infielder Ryan Schimpf is typical of San Diego.
He has launched 18 homers in less than 230 at bats but is hitting just .225 and striking out a third of the time.
Matt Kemp has 100 strikeouts and just 16 walks. There are lot of examples like that.
Thanks to the deals that they have made the Padres have no pitchers with enough innings to qualify for the ERA title on the roster, not that any of them would be all that close anyway.
Paul Clemens is already on his third team in his four season career, which is interesting because he has never really had much success in the big leagues.
He has never made more starts than the eight he has this season as the Padres brass seems content to keep running him out there.
San Francisco Giants
It is hard to say if the Giants have ended their struggles but the did sweep Arizona over the weekend. This is an important series as they look to bridge the gap between them and Los Angeles – currently sitting at three games.
The offense has not held up its end of the bargain this season.
This team does not hit a lot of home runs – Brandon Belt leads with 15 – which puts a lot pressure on everyone to pass the baton. Hunter Pence can be a force and he was red hot over the weekend with eight hits.
Jeff Samardzija is a pretty good third starter, even if he has never really lived up to the promise he showed in Chicago or Oakland. He gives you inning and some night he can dominate.
He has been a much better pitcher at home this season. He has pitched against the Padres four times this season (SF is 3-1) including two of his better starts where he beat them twice within a weak.
He has been good down the stretch.

Free San Diego Padres vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
The Giants are a huge favourite in this one but Samardzija is no sure thing so I am trying to see if I can get behind San Diego to take advantage of that huge value.
It is pretty difficult at this stage.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Giants RL
No value on the monelyline I am afraid but the runline is not too bad and maybe the Giants have turned a corner with the bats, they scored 23 runs over the weekend against Arizona.
They can certainly get to Clemens.
