San Francisco Giants vs. Pittsburgh Pirates Prediction

The Giants roll into this game, representing a record of 23-25.

That record has landed them in third place in the NL West.

San Fransisco was aggressive in the free agent market, improving their roster in the off-season.

The NL West is one of the best divisions in baseball, and the Giants' chances of making the postseason will be slim.

San Fransisco is playing its best baseball of the season, winning four consecutive games.

Left fielder Michael Conforto leads the team with a batting average of .280 while launching seven home runs.

Second baseman Thairo Estrada leads the team with 44 hits and 26 runs batted in.

Matt Chapman has added 43 hits while hitting five home runs and driving in 21 runs.

The Giants ace Logan Webb will get the rock tonight. Webb is 4-4 with a 3.03 ERA.

The Pirates come into this contest with a 22-26 record.

Pittsburgh is in third place in the NL Central, trailing the first-place Brewers by 5.5 games.

The Pirates are 5-5 over their last ten games.

Right fielder Conner Joe leads the team with a .280 batting average while driving in 22 runs.

Shortstop O'Neil Cruz leads the team, launching seven home runs this season.

All-star Bryan Reynolds is off to a sluggish start, hitting .254 with five home runs.

Veteran south paw Martin Perez will get the ball tonight. Perez is 1-3 with an ERA of 4.86.

San Francisco Giants vs. Pittsburgh Pirates Betting Pick

Webb has had a stellar season outside of a couple of starts.

He will have his best stuff tonight, shutting down this Pirates lineup.

Perez has really struggled lately, and the Giants lineup has enjoyed success against him.

Let's keep rolling tonight!
