Today’s matchup is between the San Francisco Giants (38-22) and the Texas Rangers (23-39). The Giants have won 4 of their last 5 games & the Rangers have won 1 of their last 5 games.

The Giants are starting Sam Long (LHP), who is making his first start of the season.

The Rangers are starting Kyle Gibson (RHP), who is 4-0 on the season with a 2.06 ERA, 3.08 FIP, 0.243 wOBA, K% of 20.5%, BB% of 7.3%, 88.7 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.01 WHIP in 65.2 innings pitched.

The Giants are 21st in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Rangers are 13th.

On the hitting side, the Giants have a .322 wOBA and a .322 OBP with 85 HRs. While the Rangers have a .295 wOBA and a .298 OBP with 67 HRs.

Kyle Gibson has been lights out so far and I'm not willing to back the Giants who have a first-time starter on the mound even if they have the hitting advantage. Rangers to win!
