Reds and Giants Have a Penchant for Going OVER

The San Francisco Giants have been slumping since the All-Star break, but a series with the lowly Cincinnati Reds could be just what the doctor ordered to get them back on track.

Shark Bites
  • The Reds are 2-7 SU in their last nine games against the Giants.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Giants' last 10 games.
  • The Reds are 2-7 SU in their last nine games after winning the previous game in a matchup.

Anthony DeSciafani and Jake Peavy are the probable starters. DeSciafani (5-0, 2.50 ERA) has posted six straight quality starts while lasting eight innings in two of them. The 26-year-old has not walked a batter in his last three outings.

Peavy (5-8, 5.15) was pounded for a season-high seven earned runs in a loss at Cincinnati on May 4, but the veteran is still 7-1 with a 2.92 ERA in his career against the Reds.
