Cardinals vs Giants Free Pick May 16, 2012

The San Francisco Giants play host to the St. Louis Cardinals tonight at AT&T Park. The Giants are 18-17 on the season while the Cardinals are 21-15. In tonight’s game, Giants’ starter Madison Bumgarner will have a chance to become only the fourth Giants pitcher to win nine straight home starts, since the team move to the Bay Area.

Bumgarner is 5-2 on the season with an ERA of 2.80. He has pitched terrific at AT&T Park since last August. In those eight starts, he is 8-0 with an ERA of 1.00. He also struck out 53 batters in 54 innings during that stretch.

The Cardinals will counter with Jaime Garcia. Garcia is 2-2 with an ERA of 4.09. In April, Garcia was 2-1 with an ERA of 2.80, but has had a rough May. The southpaw’s ERA for May has mushroomed to 7.71. In his last outing, he gave up five runs on nine hits in just 5 2/3 innings. He said he is frustrated and wants to do much better.

Against the Giants, Garcia is 1-1 with an ERA of 1.29 in just three starts in his career. He has held the Giants to a .194 batting average in those three starts. The Cardinals may be without their best hitter, Carlos Beltran, who was held out for the second consecutive night St. Louis’ game Tuesday night. In his last six games before sitting out two, Beltran was hitting .360 and had six home runs.

The Giants ended their three-game win streak Tuesday when they lost to Colorado 5-4. The Giants only managed to get two hits with runners in scoring position and they had 17 chances.

The line has the Giants as the favorite at -130 and the Cardinals are at +120. The total is 7. With Bumgarner on the mound in San Francisco, the Giants are nearly unstoppable. Take the Giants in this matchup with the total ending UNDER.
