***OFF ANOTHER SWEEP!*** *10* COACH’S CORNER > > 68-37 RUN w/ *10* MLB SIDES!
Pittsburgh vs. San Francisco,
09/09/2019 21:45 EDT,
Score: 6 - 4
Money Line: -155 San Francisco
The set-up: I don’t think that the home field advantage can be overlooked as a very real deciding factor in this particular starting matchup on the mound. The visitors hand the ball to Trevor Williams, while the home side counters with veteran Madison Bumgarner.
The pitchers: Williams (7-6, 5.16 ERA) has been much better of late and he’s had success vs. the Giants throughout his career, but I think that he’s simply in the wrong place at the wrong time in this one.
Bumgarner (9-8, 3.81) owns a sub-par 3-5 record in eight regular season starts vs. the Pirates, despite owning a sharp 3.22 EA.
The pick: This is a “must sweep” home stand for San Francisco if it has any hopes of staying in the playoff hunt. With their ace on the mound, I look for the Giants to find a way to get the job done at the end of the night.
