San Francisco Giants vs. Philadelphia Phillies Preview
1. The Phillies have the 2nd fewest wins in the NL.
2. The Phillies had their 2-game winning streak snapped in their last game.
3. The Giants have lost 5 straight games.
This season the Phillies are 14-14 at home and the Giants are 14-11 on the road.
In their last games the Giants lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 and the Phillies lost to the Cincinnati Reds 6-4.
The Giants had a great May and they took over first place in the NL West for a short time, but they have lost 5 in a row and are now in 2nd place in the division 1.5 games back of the Dodgers. However, they have won 3 straight on the road and 4 straight over the Phillies in Philadelphia.
The Phillies are in the basement of the NL East and after snapping their 7-game losing streak with 2 wins they lost their last outing. They are 9 games back of the Washington Nationals in the division.
It is not hard to see why the Phillies have the 2nd worst record in the NL, as they rank 30th in runs scored and 21st in team ERA.
The Giants rank in the middle of the pack at the plate and on the mound ranking 17th in runs scored and 12th in team ERA.
Tim Lincecum has had a turnaround this season after struggling in the last 2, but in his last 2 starts he has given up 8 runs in 9 innings of work. While he is only 1-1-1 with an ERA of 4.79 on the road this season he is 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA in his last 5 starts and 1 relief appearance facing the Phillies in Philadelphia.
The Giants have only won 1 of their last 8 road games when Lincecum has gotten the start.
Jerome Williams has given up at least 3 earned runs in 10 straight starts and in his last 3 starts he is 0-2 with an ERA of 6.75. While the Phillies are only 1-6 in his last 7 starts they are 5-2 in his last 7 home starts.
The Giants have won 7 of their last 9 games facing the Phillies overall.
