San Francisco Giants vs Washington Nationals 4/22/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The San Francisco Giants will meet with the Washington Nationals in MLB action in Nationals Park, D.C., on Friday, April 22, 2022, at 7:05 PM ET. The San Francisco Giants are playing well, but they had a rough start to their East Coast tour, having lost three of their first four matches against the New York Mets.

 

The Giants had a less-than-stellar offensive season thus far, with a.650 team OPS and a respectable 4.23 runs per game. Brandon Belt, the first baseman, gets off to a strong start in the 2022 season, going 11-for-43 with four home runs, eight RBI, 8 walks, and 12 strikeouts.

 

Last year, he was a nightmare for the Nationals, going 0-for-12 with a walk, a hit by pitch, and seven strikeouts in four matches.

 

Tyler Beede, who is slated to start this game, faltered to start the 2022 season, as he is in the 1st percentile in chase rate, 2nd percentile in walk percentage, 4th percentile in whiff percentage, and tenth percentile in average exit velocity.

 

Beede tosses three pitches (fastball, changeup, and curveball), and his heater was dominating batters thus far, as they are 2-for-12 against it with one strikeout. He’s struggled on the road, having a 6.30 ERA in 74.1 innings with 38 walks and 65 strikeouts in 17 career starts (14 starts) away from San Francisco.

 

  • The San Francisco Giants are 6-3 SU in their last 9 matches.
  • San Francisco is 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches against Washington.
  • The SF Giants are 15-5 SU in their last 20 matches on the road.

San Francisco Giants vs Washington Nationals Predictions 4/22/2022

 

The Washington Nationals struggled in the early portions of the regular season, especially outside of their starting lineup. They struggled at the plate, ranking 25th in the majors with a.610 team OPS and 3.73 runs per game through their first 15 games.

 

So far, right fielder Juan Soto was a force at the plate, going 13-for-49 with 3 home runs and 3 RBIs, 11 runs scored, 16 walks, and eight strikeouts.

 

Last year, he performed 76 matches at home and had a .907 OPS with 10 home runs and 40 RBI, so as long as they can find some people to bat behind him so pitchers don’t throw around him, it will be a good indication for Washington.

 

According to his Baseball Savant data, Patrick Corbin struggled so far this season, sitting in the 21st percentile in walk %, 25th percentile in xBA, 26th percentile in whiff percentage, and 32nd percentile in xERA.

 

Corbin found out how to miss barrels, as he currently has a 2.5 barrel percentage. He also possesses a five-pitch repertoire (fastball, slider, sinker, changeup, and curveball), with batters hitting his fastball the most, going 6-for-16 with a.438 slugging percentage thus far.

 

  • Washington is 6-14 SU in their last 20 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 10 of Washington’s last 11 matches against San Francisco.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Washington’s last 6 matches at home.

San Francisco Giants vs Washington Nationals. The MLB pick for this game is the San Francisco Giants. This season and in terms of roster development, the San Francisco Giants are by far the better club.

 

The Giants can pitch around Juan Soto and prevent him from hitting pitches. San Francisco excelled on the mound, ranking fourth in the majors with a 2.63 earned run average, while Washington has a team ERA of 4.88.

 

In the previous seven days, outfielder Joc Pederson has an OPS of.875 and should be able to keep hitting well. When beginning this year, Patrick Corbin was awful, and he might be an albatross for them.

 

Overall, choose the San Francisco Giants to win the first game of the series on the road. The San Francisco Giants will win to a predicted score of 5-1.
