SAN FRANCISCO: The Giants have lost seven of their last eight road games and are 1-6 in their last seven road games versus a right-handed starter. They're also 4-11 in their last 15 games overall, 2-6 in their last eight games following an off day, and are 2-10 in their last 12 contests when facing an opponent that starts a right-hander.
PHILADELPHIA: The Phillies have lost four of five at home and are 3-14 in their last 17 home games versus a team with a winning road record. They're also 1-4 in Eflin's last five starts versus a team with a winning record, are 1-4 in their last five games following an off day, and are 3-7 in their last 10 games versus a left-handed starter.
OUR PICK: The Giants have won five of their last six games versus the Phillies and are 7-2 in their last nine meetings in Philadelphia. They're also healthier now than they were over the past three weeks when they've struggled. Hunter Pence and Joe Panik are back, plus they added a major bullpen piece in Will Smith on Monday to help fix their reliever situation. After beating the Nationals twice over the weekend, the Giants are seemingly back on track and thus, are a solid bet tonight with their ace on the hill.
