The San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics wrap up their series on Sunday after noon in San Francisco. The San Francisco Giants have taken the first two games of this series and will now send Sammy Long to the mound. He has moved to a starter role and has a record of 1-0 and a ERA or 4.20. Cole Irvin will go for the the Oakland Athletics. He has a record of 5-7 and a era of 3.98. The Giants have the best record in baseball and one of the best lineups. That should show at home on Sunday.
The Pick: Giants ML (-146)
The Why: Giants bats at home
All season long the Giants have been one of the best teams at home. They are 26-10 in their park and are hitting .253 at home. The Giants rank third in MLB in OPS at .758 and are .756 against left handed pitchers like Irvin this season. Offensively they are led by a number of guys, but Brandon Crawford is having a stellar season. He is hitting .253 with 16 homers.
Irvin has been hit or miss so far this season for the Athletics. He did not start the season off well, but he has two wins and two no decisions in his last four starts. However, his last four starts have been against the Rangers, Angels, Royals and the rockies. All of those teams do not have the lineup that the Giants have. The Giants rank fourth in runs scored and 10th in average.
We’re rolling with the Giants at home on the Moneyline. They have the much better team and offense. The Brandon Crawford and the Giants lineup have been able to chip away at starters all season long and today should be no different. Take the Giants to get the sweep.

Athletics are 2-6 SU in their last 8 road games
