Game of the Week
(MLB) San Francisco vs. Philadelphia, 05/04/2024 6:05 PM, Score: 3 - 14
Money Line: -168.00 Philadelphia (Home)
Result: Win
This is a 4* play on PHI.

The Phillies are hot, and the Giants are not. Philly comes into Game 2 as winners of 7-of-8, while the Giants have lost three of four. The Phillies are 11-6 at home and the Giants are 6-11 on the road.

Ranger Suarez will toe the slab for Philly, and he's been damn near perfect so far. Suarez (5-0, 1.32 ERA) has allowed one run over 30 innings in his last five starts.

The Giants hand the ball to Keaton Winn, who is 1-2 with a 3.38 ERA on the road.

If the Phillies can't get to Winn, the Giants bullpen ranks 28th in the majors with a team ERA of 5.32 among relievers.

Granted Philly doesn't have a great bullpen either, but Suarez is more likely to go deep into the game. The Phillies have a top 5 offense while the Giants are bottom half of the league offensively.
