An East Coast road trip continues for the San Francisco Giants and they’ll be looking to put an end to a 5-game losing streak in the Bronx vs the Yankees. Another loss would mark their longest losing streak of the season, but they’re sending the right man to the mound to end the skid, with Madison Bumgarner set to take the ball.
- The Giants are 12-4 in their last 16 games with Madison Bumgarner as the starting pitcher.
- The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Giants’ last 17 games with a closing total of 7.0 or less.
- The Yankees are 5-1 in their last six games after a loss.
Bumgarner is 5-3 on the road this season with a 2.75 ERA. Although he’s never pitched against the Yankees, New York hitters have a combined 86 at-bats against him when they were on other teams, and in some cases, have hit him relatively hard. Chase Headley, in particular, has a .303 AVG and three home runs in 33 at-bats against the Giants’ ace.
The Yankees will counter with their best option on the mound, Masahiro Tanaka. The Yanks have been victorious in six straight Tanaka starts, and he’s been good in his three July starts, allowing four earned runs in 18.1 innings of work.
Given the strong pitching matchup, the game features the lowest run total on today’s MLB schedule, currently set at seven runs. The Yankees have gone UNDER in seven straight games, and the total has also gone UNDER in six straight when these teams play at Yankees Stadium.
