Giants' Suarez struggles in no-decision vs. Nationals
Andrew Suarez struggled in a no-decision against the Nationals on Friday, allowing four runs on six hits in his 4 1/3 innings of work. The right-hander punched out five and walked one on the night. After starting the game with three scoreless frames, he served up a two-run blast to Juan Soto in the fourth and a two-run single to Bryce Harper in the fifth. Suarez now owns an underwhelming 5.06 ERA and 1.25 WHIP on the year.
Marlins' Smith fires 5 1/3 shutout innings vs. Padres
Caleb Smith turned in 5 1/3 scoreless innings and earned a win over the Padres on Friday. He allowed four hits and two walks while fanning five in the victory. He didn't stick around long enough to receive credit for a quality start. The rookie does a great job of striking out batters but has struggled with his control at times. He has a bright future if he can cut his walk rate a little more. He improves to 5-6 with a 3.70 ERA after 13 starts. He has 79 strikeouts and 30 walks in 65 2/3 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Giants have dropped four of their last five games in Miami and are now just 1-7 in their last eight games versus the Marlins after losing the first two games of this series.
The over is 15-6 in the last 21 meetings between these two teams in Miami and 5-2 in the last seven meetings altogether, although the under cashed in the Marlins' 3-1 victory on Tuesday night.
Clearly the Giants have some complex where they can't beat the Marlins in any form so let's lean into that tonight. Smith is Miami's best pitcher and while Suarez started off fine, he has been ineffective for the Giants in recent starts. San Francisco is winless in its lat four games versus a left-handed starter and just 22-46 in its last 68 road games. Fade 'em.
