The San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants square off on Tuesday with first pitch set for 9:45 p.m. ET. The game takes place at Oracle Park in San Francisco, CA and will only be available on local TV or through an MLB.tv subscription. Blake Snell (5-7, 4.24 ERA) will start on the hill for San Diego, and Logan Webb (11-7, 3.33 ERA) will pitch for the Giants.
The Padres (71-59) tallied one in the win column yesterday against the Giants, 6-5. They’ve gone 5-5 in their last ten games, and are still focused in on getting a Wild Card spot in what has been a tight August race for the coveted playoff spot. Nick Martinez has continued to prove himself as a clutch closer for San Diego as we approach September.
The Giants (61-66) are on a five-game skid after getting swept by the Minnesota Twins and dropping a close one to the Padres last night, as their playoff window closes by the day. It’s a disappointing end for San Francisco after such a strong 2021 season. They’re ranking 23rd out of all 30 MLB teams in hits per game at 7.76 after finishing seventh in the same stat last season.

Odds, picks & predictions
Run Line: Padres -1.5 (+140)
Run total: 7.5
Moneyline odds: SDP -130, SFG +110
Moneyline pick: SDP -130
Snell has been able to lower his ERA in his last few starts, going 4-2 in his last seven and racking up strikeout after strikeout. With the Giants in a lull they have yet to find a way to wake up from, I’m taking the Padres to repeat tonight.
Player prop pick: Blake Snell over 6.5 strikeouts (-130)
Snell has recorded 19 Ks against San Francisco this year over 11.2 innings pitched, and 38 strikeouts in the month of August. With the Giants’ middling batting lately, the left-hander should be able to hit the over in tonight’s game.
