Giants -1 @1.87
Barry Zito is pitching very well. In his last 5 starts he gave up a combined 8 runs, all of them on home runs. San Francisco is in the middle of the playoff race, 2.5 back San Diego and 0.5 ahead Cincy for the wild card. They have to beat the bad teams like the Cubs at home. Derek Lee, Aramis Ramirez and catcher Soto are all out for the Cubbies. They have one of the worst bullpens in the league and Sean Marshall is not avaliable tonight, their only good reliever beside the closer Marmol. Giants have the bullpen ready to roll, only Casilla is out.
(I put this on Posey, Zito and Bochy in that order...)
