Hanson notches go-ahead double in 13th
The only hit of the day for Giants left fielder Alen Hanson came in the top of the 13th inning as his RBI double scored Brandon Crawford to help send his team to a 2-1 win. Andrew McCutchen was 1-for-5 with a walk and a run from the leadoff spot. Crawford was also 1-for-5 with a walk and a run. Brandon Belt finished the game 2-for-6. Derek Law picked up the win as the seventh San Francisco pitcher of the game, throwing two innings with a strikeout and two walks.
Flores has three-hit night
Wilmer Flores went 3-for-6 with a double and an RBI in Monday's loss. Amed Rosario was 1-for-5 with a walk and a run. Michael Conforto ended the night 1-for-2 plus a walk off the bench. Tyler Bashlor took the loss in relief as he allowed one earned run on one hit with a walk in two innings of work. New York wasted an outstanding start by Zack Wheeler as he allowed one earned run on five hits with 10 strikeouts and a walk over seven innings.
Chris Stratton (8-7, 5.52 ERA) will draw the start for the Giants today, while the Mets turn to Steven Matz (5-10, 4.60).
MLB Betting Trends
The under is 7-1-1 in the last nine Giants games overall. The under is 13-3-1 in the last 17 San Francisco games on Tuesdays.
The over is 6-2-2 in the last 10 meetings in New York. The over is 9-4-2 in the last 15 meetings overall.
Stratton hasn't fooled many batters all season, while Matz has been bad lately and missed time with arm fatigue. Plus we have two tired bullpens here. I think the over has a great shot to hit today.
