Giants vs Reds Free Pick April 24, 2012

April 24, 2012

Two teams that have started the season mediocre meet tonight when the San Francisco Giants visit the Cincinnati Reds at the Great American Ball Park. The Giants are 9-7 on the season and will have Matt Cain on the mound. Cain has had two very good games the last two outings he has pitched for the Giants. Over the last two games, Cain has pitched 18 innings and given up just three hits. He will look to add to that when the Giants open a three game set against Cincinnati.

Even with those two great outings, Cain is just 1-0 on the season with an ERA of 1.88, after a shaky first start. He gave up only one hit in a 5-0 victory against Pittsburgh on April 13 and then followed that up with a no decision in a Giant 1-0 win against Philadelphia where he only gave up two hits but the game went 11 innings.

The Reds are 7-9 and are home after a 10 game road trip. Cincinnati just finished a series with Chicago where they won two out of three. They will send Mat Latos to the mound. Latos has not had a good start to the season, as in his first two starts in did not make in past the fifth and in his last start he allowed eight runs in only 5 2/3 innings, in the Reds 11-1 loss against the Cardinals. Latos has a career 2-3 record in nine games against the Giants with an ERA of 2.64.

The Giants have been helped by the offense of Pablo Sandoval. The third baseman has a 16-game hitting streak as he has hit safely in each game to start the season. The Giants are 0-5 in their last five games in Cincinnati.

The line is 7.5 with both teams at -105. Take the Giants behind the arm of Matt Cain to win this game in a low scoring affair.
