MLB Expert picks: Giants@ Padres; 10:40 PM

San Francisco Giants had grabbed two of three from San Diego about three weeks ago. After that, almost nothing has helped the reigning World Series champions. On the other hand, things have not worked as it should for the Padres. The Giants will look for a win after four consecutive defeats as they visit the struggling Padres tonight. After two consecutive wins at home over San Diego (41-51) on June 18-19, San Francisco was about three games over at .500 and 1 1/2 trailing first-place Arizona in the NL West. Since then, the Giants (40-50) have an average of 2.3 runs while dropping 16 of total 19 to grab the last place in the division.

Baseball predictions expert reports that Cain had not been able to work out finely the first inning and the Giants couldn't score until the seventh on Wednesday paving way to get swept at home for the first time since July 27-29. Bochy, desperately needs a few of his top players to perform. Hunter Pence is 5 for 51 with one homer and three RBIs in his last 13 games. Pablo Sandoval is at 6 for 53 with no home runs and two RBIs in his last 14. Sandoval is at 10 for 22 with four RBIs in his last five against San Diego. San Francisco’s starting pitchers have an ERA of  7.07 while the team has gone a 1-8 in July, but the anticipated, scheduled starter Madison Bumgarner who is at 9-5 with an ERA of 3.05 earned the only victory. He allowed one two-run homer and two other hits. Meanwhile, he stroke out nine in seven innings of a 4-2 victory against the affluent Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday.
