Sure the Giants have faced some tough pitchers over their 7 last games, but 12 runs over that span is poor no matter how you spin it. Young left hander Marco Gonzales had one bad inning in his MLB debut in Colorado a tough place to pitch and did have some nice numbers in the minors. The Cardinals haven’t been tiring out the scorekeepers themselves with 4 runs in their last 4 against a slew of good starters the Dodgers threw at them. Lincecum is coming off of a no hitter which is usually a good fade angle and he has been awful in his last 3 versus the Cards with a 7.12 ERA although he hasn’t faced them since last 2012. This is a classic anti square play. Take St. Louis +104.
