Pittsburgh Pirates – San Francisco Giants Match Prediction | 10-09-2019 21:45

Last outing: Williams yielded just two earned runs, walked a batter, and struck out six in a no-decision versus the Miami Marlins. His last three starts have seen the Williams of last year return. Williams is 7-6 with a 5.16 ERA and a 96/34 K-BB ratio in 22 starts. Giants: This is his first start against the Giants this year. He has a 2.37 ERA and much better pitching ratios which seem to indicate his injured list stint was needed. This seasonvs.

Pittsburgh Pirates are holding a batting average of .233 and opposing hitters are averaging at .201.

Fortunately, I settled for a push because neither team scored again until the Giants pushed across a measly run in the top of the eighth, but I wont make a similar mistake today. Ill play the entire game this time around. Derek Holland isnt dominant but hes effective and Jameson Taillon should be fine against a San Francisco lineup that is one of the worst in baseball. I took the under in the first five innings of this matchup last night and was burned right away when Madison Bumgarner surrendered four runs in the first inning.

I think that the Giants take a step in the right direction with a win on Monday, as anything else would be a huge blow to their playoff aspirations, and getting their ace on the mound is worth laying the juice on Monday night. Bumgarner might be the best guy for San Francisco to start this series as the Giants have won each of his last nine starts at home and MadBum himself has allowed two earned runs or less in seven of his last eight starts at home. The plus money with the Pirates is tempting given Williams success in his career against San Francisco. San Francisco is the only team of the two with a chance at the postseason, even if those hopes are slim. However, Williams has struggled mightily in the second half of the season, with an ERA just south of six.
