Why you should back the Giants

San Francisco sends right-hander Kevin Gausman (8-2, 1.68 ERA) to the mound, who is looking to build on an All-Star campaign. He’ll be backed by an offense that has had a surprising amount of success this season. Outfielder Mike Yastrzemski has been heating up of late with hits in eight of his last 12 games. On Friday at Arizona, he went 2-for-5 and followed that up with a homer and two RBIs on Saturday. For the season, Yastrzemski is hitting .225 with 12 homers, 31 RBIs and 40 runs scored. He has hit well against the Cardinals. In six career games, he is batting .273 with a double and a home run.

Shortstop Donovan Solano has hits in five of his last seven games for the Giants, including a 3-for-4 performance against the Diamondbacks on Saturday. For the season, he is hitting .272 with three homers, 18 RBIs and 21 runs scored. He opened the year on a tear with four multi-hit games in San Francisco’s first four games. In 16 career games against St. Louis, Solano is batting .242 with a home run.

Why you should back the Cardinals

Left-hander Kwang Hyun Kim (2-5, 3.79 ERA) takes the mound for St. Louis. Kim is coming off a dominant performance on June 30 in a 7-4 win at Arizona. In that game, Kim went five innings, allowing just one earned run on three hits. He walked three and struck out five. The win was his first since defeating Cincinnati 5-4 on April 23. This will be his first appearance against San Francisco.

Third baseman Tommy Edman has been red hot, and has a six-game hitting streak which includes three multi-hit efforts. In the four-game series at Colorado, Edman was 6-for-16 (.375) with two doubles and one triple. For the season, he is batting .264 with four homers, 23 RBIs and 44 runs scored. In seven career games against the Giants, Edman is hitting .250 with three doubles, two triples and two RBIs.
