The Padres have won 8 of their last 10 games while the Giants have reeled off four in a row on the road. Sunday afternoon’s slate has both clubs wrapping up sets with NL West foes, with San Diego hosting Colorado and SF finishing up against Arizona.
Joe Freda’s 2012 MLB Record: 58-61-5 (-3.65 ROI)Rockies vs. Padres
Padres left-hander Andrew Werner (2-1, 2.59 ERA) is slated to face Rockies righty Alex White (2-8, 5.18 ERA). MLB odds makers opened Werner as a 155 favorite
while first setting the ‘total’ at a flat 7 ½.
Werner has tossed four stingy outings since being called up to the MLB ranks last month. The latest affair saw the 25-year-old allow one earned run over 6 1/3 frames in last Sunday’s 8-2 victory for San Diego, cashing as a minus 107 home choice against the Diamondbacks.
White has not gone past the four-inning mark in his last eight starts, logging two losses and six no-decision’s over the stretch. Monday’s 6-5 triumph for Colorado saw the second-year hurler give up one run on six hits against the Giants
, collecting as a 128 home dog.
Colorado’s relief crew has held the fort down enough after White’s starts for the UNDER to get the money at a 5-1 clip over his last six road outings. Werner has seen the UNDER cash at 3-1 over his four starts, while notching a .278 OBP and 1.04 WHIP in a trio of duels at home.Look for the UNDER to collect again here
, extending a 4-0 streak for the wager in Colorado’s last four road spots against southpaw starters.
Giants vs. DiamondbacksArizona sends lefty Patrick Corbin (5-7, 4.19 ERA) to the hill against Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong
(12-8, 3.40 ERA). MLB odds makers opened Corbin as a 120 favorite while initially listing the ‘total’ at a flat 9 ½.
Corbin went a fourth straight start without a win in Sunday’s 8-2 defeat for Arizona as a 101 road dog against the Padres. The rookie gave up one run on four hits, while tossing six strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings.
Vogelsong has logged a 3-2 mark in his last five road starts, while getting shelled earlier this month at home by Arizona’s bats in an 8-6 setback for San Francisco. The affair saw the 35-year-old surrender six runs in 3 1/3 innings, giving up a homer to Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill as part of nine hits.
Corbin held the Giants to just three hits in May’s 5-1 home victory for Arizona, lasting seven frames en route to cashing as a 110 underdog. The New York native’s arm has held visiting foes to a 1.15 WHIP at Chase Field.Look for Arizona to end the Giants’ winning streak here as short ‘chalk’
with Vogelsong giving up his share of runs over San Francisco’s 1-4 mark in the veteran’s last five starts against division rivals.Pick
