TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASEBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, AUGUST 28TH
#959 SAN FRANCISCO with Webb (-104) over Atlanta with Ynoa at 7:20 PM EST
Off yesterday’s 6-5 road loss to the Braves, the Giants will bounce back in a big way in this National League battle. Atlanta has dropped two of its last three games and this will prove to be a tough spot for manager Brian Snitker and his boys.
Up on the bump for the Gints will be sizzling right-hander Logan Webb. In five August performances against the A’s, Mets, Rockies, Brewers, and Astros, No. 62 has been scratched for six earned runs and 25 hits in 31.1 innings. Webb fanned 35 and walked six on his way to a 3-0 record and a strong 1.72 ERA. Overall, with 98.1 innings in the bank, Logan has surrendered only 31 earned runs and 83 hits in 98.1 frames. That’s good enough for a 7-3 tally with a proud 2.84 ERA.
Young right-hander Huascar Ynoa will counter for the Braves. In his last start at home against the Yankees, No. 19 was roughed up for three earned runs and four hits in 6.0 innings. Ynoa fanned nine, walked one, served up one home run, and was tagged with the loss in the Pinstripes 5-1 victory. Overall, with just 56.0 innings in the books this year, Ynoa has been tapped for 18 earned runs and 43 hits. That equates to a 4-3 record and a 2.89 ERA.
Several reliable team trends support this investment. San Francisco has won six straight in the second game of a series, 39 of its last 52 facing a foe that allowed five runs or more last, 41 of its last 56 against a right-handed starter, and 35 of its last 51 coming off a loss.
The Giants lead in the NL West rests at 2.5-games over the Dodgers and they need this victory badly in order to keep their slim advantage. Take San Francisco with Webb. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
