The Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants meet Saturday in MLB action at Oracle Park. The Pittsburgh Pirates need a win after losing 6 of their last 8 games. The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 8 games.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have scored 12 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Pirates have won 5 of their last 8 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Ke’Bryan Hayes leads the Pirates with 98 hits and 35 RBI, while Bryan Reynolds and Michael Chavis have combined for 162 hits and 72 RBI. Tyler Beede gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 3.57 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. This will be Beede’s first career game against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants have scored 16 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 6 games. The Giants have won 6 of their last 9 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Wilmer Flores leads the Giants with 90 hits and 57 RBI, while Thairo Estrada and Mike Yastrzemski have combined for 159 hits and 86 RBI. Logan Webb gets the ball, and he is 10-5 with a 3.17 ERA and 115 strikeouts this season. This will be Webb’s second career game against the Pirates.

Neither of these teams have been able to get out of their way as of late, but there’s no doubt the San Francisco Giants have the clear edge at home with Webb on the mound. Webb has been money the last two years at home, and he has a 3.01 ERA and .255 allowed batting average in 71.2 home innings this season. Tyler Beede has allowed 7 hits and 4 runs in his last 5 innings. Give me the Giants and the RL because who is on the mound.
