The San Francisco Giants take on the San Diego Padres on Sunday afternoon for game 2 of their 3 game series from Petco Park. The Giants now lead the NL West while San Diego sits in 3rd behind LA.
The Giants are 7-4 in their last 11 games and the Padres are 5-5 in their last 11 games.
These teams played in game 1 Friday night with the Padres edging the Giants 3-2. Yu Darvish struck out 12 and the San Diego Padres, helped when a replay review turned a Giants grand slam into a foul ball which ultimately made the differnce.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants have to be the biggest surprise of the year so far to see them tied atop the division after a month of games. They have one of the more balanced lineups in baseball with three different players leading in the three major offensive categories.
Kevin Gausman will get the start on Sunday for the Giants as the former fourth-rounder is 1-0 with a 2.14 ERA and 34 strikeouts across 33.2 innings of work this season. He had a great last outing on Sunday, going seven shutout innings with eight strikeouts and has also been strong against the Padres historically, with a 2.2 ERA in three games.
San Diego Padres
After a series win against the Dodgers last weekend that had many across the country thinking the Padres had turned a corner towards being the dominant team that many expected, they found themselves with a split against the Diamondbacks
The offense has been led by the big bats of Tatis Jr. and Eric Hosmer, who have teamed up to be one of the most dangerous duos in the league. Tatis Jr. leads the team with seven home runs and has slowly but surely raised his average to .262 of late.
Joe Musgrove will start the Sunday afternoon slate for the Padres. The right hander is 2-2 on the season but boasts a career low 1.24 ERA. Musgrove has also struck out 41 batters to only 5 walks in just 29 innings.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Giants are 16-10 overall

Free San Francisco Giants vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
The Giants have been the surprise of baseball so far, but this series lines up perfectly for the Padres as they build off last weekend’s series win against the Dodgers and continue their momentum.
The pitching matchup will be the difference as both have had great seasons thus far. Gausman is undefeated with an ERA just north of 2 while Musgrove is 2-2 but boasts a 1.24 ERA.
San Diego won game 1 and are leading game 2 late so therefore I see the Giants winning Sunday and breaking up the sweep opportunity.
