The San Francisco Giants are one the most established and successful baseball franchises. The New York Gothams were the first major league New York City baseball team. They were founded in 1883. Since then, the Giants have appeared in 20 World Series, won 23 NL pennants and held two National League records. Their eight World Series titles rank second in the NL, and are tied for fourth overall. Their rivalry with the Dodgers dates back to when they were both in New York. [+]
Why not place a bet on San Francisco
The Giants are currently at.175 with runners in scoring positions during this 10-game stretch that San Francisco has gone 6-6. The Giants have a season average of.247 with RISP. The Giants have scored 126 runs, which is second in major leagues to Toronto. Only the third time that the Giants have been in the All-Star break lead in home runs is since 1958 when they moved to San Francisco. The other two times were 1989 (80 home runs), and 1958 (95 home runs).
Keep an eye on LaMonte Wade (Giants outfielder/firstbaseman) as he recovers from a left-hand strain. Brandon Belt is on the injured list. He has been playing at first base almost every day.
On Wednesday, the Giants avoided a sweep by the Cardinals with a 5-2 victory. Jake McGee only allowed one hit and struckout a batter in the ninth inning to earn his 17th save of this season. Andrew Knizner struck out and Paul DeJong was hit with a double. Since June 9, the 34-year-old has not allowed an earned run in his 12 previous appearances. He has also recorded two wins and five saves. Over 34.1 innings, the left-hander has a 2.88 ERA and 0.84 WHIP. He also boasts 39:6 KBB. Since June 1, the Giants bullpen has had a 2.23 ERA, the highest ERA in major leagues.
Logan Webb (3-2, 3.86) is here. Webb has been sidelined since June due to a right shoulder strain. Before Webb can make Friday’s start, the right-hander must be officially reinstated from the injury list. One rehab appearance was made with Triple-A Sacramento. He allowed one run on a hit, a walk and one strikeout over two innings.
San Francisco Giants: +8000 to+1600
The Giants were considered a long-shot to make any kind of noise with star-studded teams such as the Dodgers or Padres in NL West. The odds have changed dramatically. The Giants are now at +1600 after opening the year with +8000 odds from BetMGM that they would win the World Series. The Giants currently have the best record in baseball at 57-32 and are two games ahead of the Dodgers, and six games ahead the Padres in division standings.Last Updated on October 2, 2021
