San Francisco Giants at Washington Nationals
First pitch: 10:05 a.m. PT
TV: MLB Network
Probable pitchers: Drew Pomeranz (0-1, 3.86 ERA) vs. Patrick Corbin (0-0, 2.84 ERA)
Two veteran southpaws in their first year with new teams will go at it this afternoon, both entering with their own perfect streaks in over/unders thus far.
Despite some stellar pitching to begin his tenure in D.C., the over has hit in each of Corbin’s first three starts as a Washington National. That’s also been the result in the other games of this series.
Pomeranz, on the other hand, has seen the under go 3-0 in his assignments. Similar to his counterpart in this getaway-day series finale (which will have downgraded lineups), he, too, has looked sharp in the early going.
It’s true, Pomeranz hasn’t worked beyond the fifth inning yet, but he’s also allowed only two runs in each of his outings while notching a standout 16-5 K/BB ratio across 14 innings. This signals that the 2010 fifth overall draft pick is returning to old form after last year’s lost campaign due to injury — the form that led him to an All-Star berth only a few seasons ago.
Meanwhile, Corbin has been looking like an All-Star in so far returning positive amounts on the big investment Washington made for his services in the offseason. The former Arizona Diamondback has clocked in with three quality starts in as many tries, ultimately registering a 2.84 ERA and 1.11 WHIP to go with an excellent 24-4 K/BB ratio in 19 innings.
His last effort was his most impressive, as Corbin twirled a seven-inning, one-run, 11-strikeout gem against the Pirates. He’s clearly settled in right now and has a favorable matchup today in hopes of continuing that. Combine that with the steady work of Pomeranz and pitching looks like it could pace this under all the way. Play: UNDER 8 (-120)
