Score: 3 - 2
Money Line: +107 San Francisco
Giants RH Ryan Vogelsong (3-2, 3.45 ERA) vs. Reds LH Tony Cingrani (2-5, 4.01)
Cigrinni the Reds starting thrower today vs the visiting SF Giants is 0-3 with a 5.29 ERA in three starts since returning from the DL. He has had difficulties going deep into games. The southpaw hurler threw 98 pitches in 5 plus innings in his last turn, which was a loss to the Arizona DBacks. Meanwhile, Vogelsong his Giants pitching opponent had his 14-inning scoreless streak snapped in his last start at St. Louis. The right hander did however, last 6 1/3 innings, which marks the seventh consecutive start in which he worked at least six innings. Previous to the above mentioned down performance, he had allowed only four earned runs over his previous 19 2/3 innings.The veteran is 3-1 with a 1.94 ERA over his last seven starts, with San Francisco winning in six of those tilts.
: I know the Reds bats of come to life of late, and they took out the Giants last night by a 8-3 count, but Im betting Vogelsong is capable of slowing them down. The experienced thrower has seen his team win 4 of his L/5 road starts and 6 of his L/7 outings overall. Meanwhile, Cigrinni has struggled overall and seen his team lose his L/4 starts. I can see him once again having problems, vs a Giants team that are owners of the best record in the Majors at 37-21.
Final notes & Key Trends: Giants are 10-4 in their last 14 games as a road underdog.Giants are 28-8 in their last 36 games following a loss.Reds are 5-11 in their last 16 games following a win.
