Free MLB Pick
Ryan Vogelsong is coming off a great last start where he did not give up any earned runs in 7 innings in a 6-0 win over the San Diego Padres. He is is 3-3 in his career facing the Marlins and he has the lowest ERA facing them (1.99) of any team he has faced more than 3 times. The Giants are 5-2 in Vogelsong’s last 7 starts. After the Marlins lost their first 3 games of the season with Mat Latos on the hill they have won their last 3 with him getting the starting nod. In his last start he gave up 1 earned run in 6 innings of work in a 2-1 win over the Washington Nationals. In 11 career starts facing the Giants he is 4-3 with an ERA of 2.19 and he has not faced them since the 2012 season when he won both of his starts facing them when he was with the Cincinnati Reds.
The pitching has been up and down for the Giants as of late, as in their last 7 games they are 4-3 and in the 4 wins they have shut out their opponent and in their 3 losses they have combined to give up 22 runs. I think Vogelsong will have another good start and lead the Giants to win in this game.
