San Diego Padres vs. San Francisco Giants, the second game of the series at the Padres’ home. So far the home team has won a single series at home, against the Rockies this week. This series against the Giants will be interesting to analyze, since the Giants have not won any of the series they have had this season and only tied a series against the Dodgers.
San Diego Padres: Starting the season slow.
The home team needs to win games, it is important to add more wins during the season since currently they only have 4 wins and 10 losses, the team started the season losing the first 4 games (Brewers x3 and Rockies x1), besides the games were in home which resulted in a strong blow for the players, starting the season that way was the worst thing that could have happened to them.
At home the Padres have an average of 3.12 runs per game, but they are allowing up to 5.38 runs to the visitors, in addition the defense is not doing its job well, the average number of hits per game against is 9.25 and the offense only hits for .222, that’s just 6.62 hits at home against visitors. Another problem has been the injuries, the parents are plagued by injuries: Cordoba, Dickerson, Lamet, Margot, Myers, Perdomo, Rea, Strahm and Yates, most of the injured will not be available until the end of April.
The first game of this series of 4 games was a complete disaster, San Francisco Giants scored 7 runs and the Padres nothing. On the part of the Giants, McCutchen scored 2 runs and 1 hit, Panik was batting for .295 with 1 run and 1 hit. Giants had a .280 at bat average, the Padres defense could not do anything, the runs were inevitable.
San Francisco Giants: Good season start on the road.
Little games away from home, but the Giants have won 3 out of 5, the effectiveness is above 60%, also in the regular season the team is with 6 wins and 6 losses overall, being on road the best record for the team. The debut of the 2018 season was against the Dodgers, the Giants won the first two games (1-0, 1-0), but lost the last two games by more than 14 runs in total.
So far things have gone against San Diego Padres, the visiting team is hitting .241, Giants dominated the first inning scoring 3 runs, then scored 4 runs in the sixth inning to seal the victory. The average runs on the road is 1.80 overrall, but at the Padres house they are about 4.51 runs in the historical data.
The pitchers for this game will be Ty Blach (L, Giants) ERA 4.11 and on the side of the San Diego Padres will be Tyson Ross 5.25 ERA, both pitchers have problems to start the games, both have allowed more than 12 runs combined this season, the hits are over 20 on average and surely they will not stop the best hitters in the game.
