In the matter of fact, the Giants have scored four or more runs in seven of their last ten games (5-5), but now they’ll face Jon Lester (6-8 with a 3.26 ERA), who is coming off three consecutive quality starts.
The left-hander surrendered two or fewer runs in each of those three outings, including 5 hits and 2 runs, while striking out fourteen over eight innings in the last of them against Colorado on July 29 (3-2).Lester went 2-0 with a 0.52 ERA in two career starts against the Giants.
Nori Aoki is 4-for-9, with 2 RBI and a walk against him, but Buster Posey, Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford, Hunter Pence and Justin Maxwell are a combined 3-for-26.
San Francisco will give the ball to Ryan Vogelsong (7-7 with a 4.16 ERA), who was pretty inconsistent so far this season, as the right-hander surrendered four or more runs in seven of his previous sixteen starts.
Vogelsong went 4-4 with a 4.81 ERA in his previous nine starts away from home in 2015 and what is also important for my bet: he has posted a 4.67 ERA in his last five starts versus Chicago.
Anthony Rizzo is 3-for-5, with 2 HR and 4 RBI off Vogelsong, Chris Denorfia is hitting .333 (2-for-6), with two walks against him, David Ross is 1-for-3, Starlin Castro is 5-for-18, while Dexter Fowler is 3-for-11, with a walk.
I think that the hosts are capable to win the second game of this series with more than one run difference.
