San Francisco Giants
San Francisco will be full of confidence after winning back to back games and winning the last 5 of 7. I’m not sure many people would of thought they’d be saying this but the Giants are sitting atop of the NL west. On Friday night they got a very strong pitching performance from Logan Webb, he went 6 innings and didn’t give up a run.
Giants will be sending Anthony DeScalafani to the mound, he will make his first starts against his from team. He has had a very strong season 3-1 record with a 2.14 ERA. I think the more impressive numbers is his K/BB ration 41Ks and only 11BB. He makes you work every time you step in the batters box.
The Giants are basically middle of the pack offensively they have average ab out 4.3 runs per game and that ranks them 15th but they have hit the 5th most home runs in the league. Downside to their offence is it seems like they either hit a home run or an out they have one of the worst team batting averages in the league. Good news for them is they are playing a pitcher who has struggled this season.

The Reds are sitting one game below .500 and sit in 4th place in the NL Central. Their biggest issue this season has been the pitching they give up 5.3 runs per game which is 28th worst in the majors they give up a ton of hits and they are below league average when it comes to fielding percentage.
speaking of pitching they will be sending Luis Castillo to the bump on Tuesday. it has not been pleasant for the Reds when Castillo pitches, they have only won 1 of his 8 starts this season.
He has also struggled personally with a 1-5 record and an ERA almost at 8 he needs to figure out how to turn his season around immediately. Last time out he didn’t make it out of the 4th inning giving up 10 hits and 8 earned runs in 3.2 innings vs Colorado. he needs to improve a ton if he wants to grab his second win of the campaign.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
This a game that I will personally be running to the windows to bet, I LOVE the Giants in this spot. Sure they don’t score a lot of runs, their team is based more for pitching, but EVERYONE has been scoring runs vs the Reds this season and Luis Castillo has really struggled this year, I can’t back him today. Giants ML for me!
