This is a 1* free play on the "under" between the San Diego Padres and the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night (10:15 EST).
Andrew Cashner (5-3, 3.52 ERA) gets the call for the visitors; Cashner is coming off a 3-2 win over the Braves on Tuesday by striking out five over eight innings of work. In all the big right-hander would give up two runs off six hits with a walk. Cashner has now thrown two quality starts in a row and gone at least six innings in each of his last seven (note that he's 4-2 with a 3.14 ERA in all "night games" this season). Cashner will be opposed by Matt Cain (5-3, 4.70 ERA) who gave up two hits and two walks over 6 2/3's scoreless frames vs. Pittsburgh on Thursday. Cain is also coming off back to back decent starts and will look to improve upon his 3-1, 4.62 ERA home record. These teams don't score a lot of runs and that's definitely been the case when playing against each other in 2013, coming into the series opener on Monday night with the O/U sitting at 2-4 so far. "Recent performance" plays a role in my handicapping method and each starter comes into this game with considerable momentum; expect a duel into the latter frames and for this one to sneak below the posted number.
