The San Francisco Giants have surprised quite a few people this year and they will look to continue with their strong start to the season here against the Phillies, as these two teams meetup at Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday.
San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants are coming off of a losing series to the Miami Marlins which is obviously not ideal given the roster the Marlins have this year, but they were able to pick up the victory in the last match of that series to avoid the sweep and they did it by holding the Marlins to 0 runs in the shutout victory.
The pitching has been the main reason this team is able to come into this game with a record 3 games above .500 with their bullpen being especially impressive, as this pitching unit comes into this game allowing opposing hitters an average of just .211 which has the Giants at 5th in the entire league in that metric.
Although there has been a standout performance here or there for the Giants the batting has generally been their downfall, as they hit only at a .205 average and have only batted in 49 runs on the season and to get a series win against this Phillies team they are going to need to come alive during this series.
This Phillies were able to pick up the rubber match win against the Cardinals last time out by a score of 2-0 with Bryce Harper hitting the winning run with a solo home run in the first inning, as the Phillies slugger looks to get hot.
It has been an all around solid performance from both the Phillies bats and pitching staff, as they rank upper to middle of the pack in both categories and given the roster they have put together I would look for this team to be making a strong push for the playoffs come September.
The Phillies also have to be excited about their third base prospect Alec Bohm who has started the season with a .222 average and a home run and he already looks to be getting better as the season wears on.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
We are getting two solid pitchers here and two teams who have not been outstanding with the bats thus far and when you pair that with a total of 8.5 it looks like the under is the way to go in this spot.
The Giants bats in particular worry me, as I see them winning most of their games this year with 3 or 4 runs, so if they happen to lose here I don’t see them scoring much, and if they win it is likely because they held the Phillies bats in check.
I would have had this game at either 7.5 or 8, so I think we are getting solid line value in this spot and so I would be on the lookout for a low scoring and tightly contested affair here on Tuesday.
