With studs like C.J. Wilson, Hiroki Kuroda, Mat Latos, Roy Halladay, and Ryan Vogelsong slinging today it would seem there are some easy games out there, but au contraire, my friend.  Doc Halladay is giving up a home run to the Brewers every 11.8 at bats; Latos has a .308 BAA versus the Astros;  the Angels have lost Wilson’s last three starts. That said, today is a new day and anything can happen!

San Diego at San Francisco 10:15 PM Richard vs Vogelsong

Ryan Vogelsong is one of the better pitchers in the NL and yet he doesn’t get the recognition he deserves. In Vogelsong’s 17 starts this year the Giants are 12-4 and have won by an average of 2 ½ runs in those 12 wins. Vogelsong has a 2.70 ERA in July and a 0.95 WHIP – Those numbers will surely get better today.

On the flip side of this matchup, Clayton Richard, while a quality pitchers, has a 4.15 ERA in July and a .308 BAA when facing the Giants. San Francisco has been one of the hottest hitting teams over the past week as they’re averaging 6 ½ runs over that span. Look for Melky and company to get to Richard in this one.

Picks: Giants -1 ½ (+145) and Over 6 ½ (-115)
