San Francisco Giants (Tim Lincecum) +146
Cincinnati Reds (Homer Bailey) -158
The Giants have been struggling mightily over the course of the last several weeks, and they are in a position where they are going to have to really get on their high horses if they are going to get into the playoffs. This road trip is seeming to take a lot out of the club as well, and Tuesday’s game probably isn’t going to be all that much of an exception. RHP Tim Lincecum hasn’t pitched well in his last four outings, allowing at least three runs in all four games without getting through more than seven innings of work. He’s going against a Cincinnati lineup that has lit him up for a 7.41 ERA in three career outings as well. RHP Homer Bailey isn’t our favorite pitcher on the face of the earth, but he does have a 33.35 ERA at home this season to go with 58 strikeouts in 51 innings of work. Sure, Bailey is only 2-1 in those games, and he has had a few duds of late, but he hasn’t had a heck of a lot of help either. Bailey has gotten absolutely nothing in support from his team in two shutout losses on June 26th and June 15th respectively. Last night was the night that things turned around for the struggling Cincinnati offense. Tonight is the night that Bailey finally gets some help and gets his fifth victory of the campaign.
