Giants Struggling To Score Against Good Teams

The San Francisco Giants are in the middle of a terrible stretch that has caused them to give up their sizable lead in the NL West, thanks to their inefficiency against the best teams. The Giants are averaging just 2.7 runs per game in their past 12 games against teams with winning records – which has caused the UNDER to go 11-1 in those games. San Fran closes out a three-game set with the Marlins on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Giants are 1-6 in Jeff Samardzija’s past seven starts.
  • The Marlins are 17-6 in their past 23 games against the NL West.
  • The OVER is 9-2 in the last 11 games between the Giants and Marlins in Miami.

If any Giants’ fans had the notion that the All-Star break would cure whatever ails Jeff Samardzija, they have completely abandoned those thoughts. ‘The Shark’ has a 6.85 ERA while surrendering six home runs in four starts since the All-Star break.

David Phelps will be making his second start of the season after the righty went 4.1 innings of no-run ball against the Colorado Rockies on Friday. Phelps has been a strikeout machine for the Marlins this year, as he is second in the NL in K’s by a reliever.
