Today’s matchup is between the San Francisco Giants (25-24) and the Oakland Athletics (31-19). The Giants have won 2 of their last 5 games & the Athletics have won 2 of their last 5 games.

The Giants are starting Logan Webb (RHP), on the mound who is 2-3 on the season pitching a 4.96 ERA, 3.76 FIP, .336 wOBA, K% of 22.1%, BB% of 9.6%, 88.3 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.46 WHIP in 45.1 innings pitched.

The Athletics are starting Chris Bassitt (RHP), who is 4-2 on the season with a 2.92 ERA, 4.04 FIP, .307 wOBA, K% of 20%, BB% of 6.7%, 89 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.26 WHIP in 49.1 innings pitched.

The Giants are the 29th best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Athletics are 1st.

On the hitting side, the Giants have a .337 wOBA and a .333 OBP. The Athletics have a .318 wOBA and a .325 OBP. The Giants have 64 HRs this season while the Athletics have 62 HRs.

At first glance just looking at the ERA and the record Chris Bassitt seems like a better pitcher than Logan Webb but a closer look says they are very similar in talent. The Giants are slightly better at hitting but their relieving is horrible so with everything taken into consideration I see the Athletics winning the game but a first 5 inning bet on the Giants would be a good value.
