Oakland Athletics – San Francisco Giants Match Prediction | 14-08-2019

Brett Anderson threw five scoreless innings on Sunday in a 6-0 victory over the Indians. Anderson allowed just three hits, and he struck out three while putting two on via walk. The lack of missed bats makes him a poor fantasy option going forward, but its nice to see the veteran southpaw see some success in 2018 for the surprising As. Andersons next appearance is not yet scheduled, but hell likely make one more start before the break. A very strong first start back for Anderson, who had missed nearly two months with a shoulder strain.

He's simply one of the best big game pitchers of this generation and the Giants are in the thick of the playoff race right now. The Giants are 10-3 withBumgarner on the mound since June, and he's starting to look more and more like the pitcher we're used to seeing. Give me the Giants. You have to love getting an ace at home and a cheap price. Anderson has allowed 38 hits and 17 runs in his last 36.2 innings, and he has a 3.45 ERA and .238 allowed batting average on the road.Bumgarner has allowed 35 hits and 14 earned runs in his last 42 innings, and he has a 3.08 ERA and .223 allowed batting average at home.

Samardzija missed the whole of June while rehabbing from a bout of inflammation in his right shoulder. He struck out three and walked one in his return to the mound, throwing 81 pitches (53 strikes) on the afternoon. The veteran right-hander figures to be stretched out as he gets his legs back underneath him, but fantasy parties would be advised to avoid even once he's shaken off the rust. Making his first start since the end of May, Jeff Samardzija allowed three runs on seven hits over five innings in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals. Samardzija had been pitching to a grueling 6.56 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in eight starts prior to going down injured. In terms of run-scoring action on his line, opposite number Carlos Martinez managed to burn him for an RBI double in the third inning and Dexter Fowler (sacrifice fly) and Francisco Pena (RBI single) would extend the deficit to 3-0 one frame later. Up next on the docket, a home start against the A's.

But sometimes a break can halt the hot play in a heartbeat. Jackson is fully capable of imploding as he's done plenty in his career of ups and downs. With Rodriguez showing himself as a trusted piece in the Giants rotation, I'm going to take the Giants to notch the small upset on the road here. Oakland has been as hot as anyone as of late and Jackson has provided a solid arm in the rotation.
