Friday MLB Free Play: San Francisco Giants at Pittsburgh Pirates

Madison Bumgarner has allowed just 14 runs and 20 hits over 26 innings for the San Francisco Giants so far. The southpaw has 23 strikeouts to just four walks. Bum has seen Pittsburgh just twice since 2016 holding them to one run in each start.

Event: (903) San Francisco Giants at (904) Pittsburgh Pirates
Sport/League: MLB
Date/Time: April 19, 2019 7PM EDT
Play: Total Under 7.5 (-113)

The Pirates lineup is averaging 3.7 runs per contest and are hitting .220 in their last seven games. San Fran’s bullpen has some pretty good arms so they should be able to hold a late lead. Jordan Lyles has pitched well in two starts holding the Cubs and Reds to one run and six hits in 11 innings. Now, I’m not expecting him to continue to pitch like that, but the Giants lineup is pretty bad. San Fran has scored three runs or less in five of their last eight games. Pittsburgh has gone under in five of their last seven. I think this one is a lower scoring game.


Friday MLB Game of the Night
I’m not going to lie….it’s been a bit of a struggle as of late for me. A couple of bullpen disasters away from a solid win streak though so the wins will start to come soon. Get this winner today and start your weekend off on the right foot.
