Free MLB Prediction
New York rookie Noah Syndergaard got off to a solid start this season, as in his first 4 games he had an ERA of only 1.82. However, he gave up 7 earned runs in 4 innings in his last start, which was a 7-2 loss to the San Diego Padres. He will be facing a Giants’ team that is 13-3 in their last 16 road games and in that span they have hit .316 as a team and scored 89 runs. Chris Heston only went 3 innings in his last start where he gave up 5 earned runs in 5 innings in a 7-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Before that game the Giants had won 4 in a row with him on the hill.
The Giants have won 4 of their last 5 games facing the Mets in New York and even though they are coming off a loss they will win tonight. Don’t look for a pitcher’s duel tonight between 2 hurlers that are coming off poor starts, but the San Francisco offense will be the difference in this game.
