San Francisco +108 over San Diego

4:10 PM EST. Mackenzie Gore (LHP - SD) will make his 13th start of the season and while he is in the conversation for National League Rookie of the Year, there are some red flags in the once highly regarded prospects profile. A groundball rate of just 38.2% leaves much to be desired, as does his high walk rate of 4.43 BB/9. Across his last four starts, Gore has issued 15 free passes in 17 innings. He also gave up 22 hits and 15 runs in those appearances. Last time out, Gore allowed one run on five hits with four walks. He also hit two hit batters, striking out just three over 5.2 innings last Sunday.

Gore’s recent struggles are a result of his inability to spot his pitches, a skill that has escaped him and caused major delays in his promotion to the majors. Gore has also seen a dip in his velo (it's down about 1.5 mph over the four starts. His fastball command has also waned and he’s not getting as many swings and misses as he was earlier in the year, as his swing-and-miss rate has plunged to a wimpy 8.75% over those last four starts.

Alex Wood (LHP - SF) brings an unlucky .336 Batting Average of Balls in Play to this start, which is coupled with an equally unlucky ERA that is higher than his xERA and an unlucky strand rate of 67.1% You get the idea, dude has been unlucky. The goods under the hood back up that Wood is pitching just about as well as he did last year, as that xERA of 3.84 is in line with 2021, as is his solid 5.6% barrel rate, which is used to measure solid contact by opposing hitters. Wood does bring an elite ground ball rate of 48.9%. We trust better days are ahead for Wood and a correction to the good is coming.
