TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASEBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, JUNE 23RD
#910 SAN FRANCISCO RUN-LINE with Webb (-1′ +122) over Arizona with Davies at 10:15 PM EST
On a blistering 10-1 run and off yesterday’s 10-0 crushing home loss to the Padres, the Giants will start a new winning streak when the Diamondbacks visit. San Francisco is resting 3.5-games back in the NL West behind division-leading Arizona and manager Gabe Kapler wants his kids to gain some ground with victories in this crucial series.
Strong righty Logan Webb will toe the rubber for the home team. Overall, with 15 starts in the books, No. 62 has been touched for only 34 earned runs and 90 hits in 98.1 innings. Logan struck out 96 and walked 19 on his way to a 6-6 record with a powerful 3.11 ERA. The Rocklin, California product has pitched well in his own backyard, too. Inside Oracle Park, Webb has been nicked for just nine earned runs and 34 hits in 39.2 frames. That’s good enough for a rock-solid 2.04 ERA.
Veteran righty Zach Davies will counter for the road team. Facing the Guardians and Phillies in his last two outings, No. 27 was blasted for 12 earned runs and 15 hits in only 6.2 innings. Zach whiffed six and walked four on his way to an 0-2 tally with an ugly 16.22 ERA. The night skies haven’t been kind to the Puyallup, Washington hurler either. With the lights on, Davies has been dusted for 11 earned runs and 16 hits in 14.0 frames. That’s bad enough for a 1-1 record with a lofty 7.07 ERA.
Plenty of reliable team trends support this wager as well. San Francisco has won nine of its last 10 against division foes, 10 of its last 12 in the first game of a series, 14 of its last 19 after scoring two runs or less last, and 25 of its last 35 overall. On the other side of the diamond, Arizona has fallen in 21 of its last 26 as a guest in this series and 176 of its last 227 as road pup priced between +175 and +250.
The Giants have work to do in the NL West and they can gain some serious ground with wins over the Diamondbacks in this setting. Take San Francisco on the run-line with Webb. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
