Money Line: +100 San Diego
Tim Lincecum has had some control issues this season posting 14 walks in 22.7 innings pitched. He is averaging just 5.7 innings per start and has a 5.09 ERA in his last three games. In his two games on the road this season Lincecum has gone only 5 innings per start and has a 1.700 WHIP. It seems as though the once dominate right-hander has lost some of his game and the Padres are in a perfect position to hand Lincecum his first loss of the season. The Giants are batting .250 and averaging 3.3 runs per game in their last 7 games. Andrew Cashner will get the start for the Padres and that complete lack of offense from the Giants is just what the young pitcher needs to make a deep run in this game. He has thrown in 6 games this season and has a 1.203 WHIP. He started against San Francisco on April 20th and gave up just two earned runs and had five strikeouts in four innings pitched. San Diego struggled to get Cashner the run support he needed in that game but I expect a different result today.
