The San Francisco Giants have looked more like the Bad News Bears since the all-star break concluded, but a Tuesday contest against the lowly Philadelphia Phillies could go a long way to getting the squad back on track.
- The Phillies are 12-4 SU in their last 16 games after a loss.
- The total has gone OVER in seven of the Giants’ last nine games against the Phillies.
- The Giants are 16-5 SU in their last 21 games after an ATS win.
Madison Bumgarner and Zach Eflin are the probable starters for the Giants and Phils, respectively. Bumgarner (10-6, 2.09 ERA) has been plagued by a lack or run support in his last two starts. The hurler absorbed the loss on June 25 against the Phillies despite striking out seven in 6 1/3 innings of a 3-2 defeat.
Eflin (3-4, 4.23) was roughed up in his last outing to the tune of seven runs in five-plus innings in an 11-1 setback to Miami. The 22-year-old has otherwise been outstanding of late, posting a 3-2 mark with a 2.08 ERA in his previous seven starts.
