Giants' Holland logs quality start vs. Mariners

Derek Holland yielded three hits and two runs (one earned) over six solid innings Wednesday in a no-decision against Seattle. The veteran lefty cashed out with four strikeouts and one walk. Holland got off to a bit of a rocky start, allowing a run in each of his first two innings. One of those runs came on Ryon Healy’s solo blast in the second. Holland settled down after that, however, and held the Mariners scoreless over his final four innings. The 31-year-old only has five wins to his credit this year, though he’s pitched to a serviceable 3.92 ERA across 23 appearances including 19 starts. Holland will be back in action Monday against the Padres, who he has already faced twice this year.

Padres' Lauer gets roughed up by Mets

Eric Lauer was tagged for six runs in four innings by the Mets in a loss Tuesday. Lauer had a strong six weeks from the beginning of June through his next-to-last start before the break, but he's given up 11 runs in six innings his last two times out.

MLB Betting Trends

San Francisco

The Giants are 1-4 in their last five games overall and are 2-6 in their last eight road outings.

San Diego

The Padres are just 4-10 in Lauer's last 14 starts.

Prediction:

The Giants have not had any success in San Diego of late (1-5 in their last six games played at Petco Park), but they are 4-1 in their last five games versus the Padres. Holland has also been very good for the Giants, whoa re 4-1 in his last five starts inside the division. The Padres are also just 3-14 in their last 17 home games, are 0-5 in their last five divisional games and are 2-5 in Lauer's last seven home starts. The Giants are struggling but the price is right on them tonight.

 

The Pick: San Francisco Giants -113
