The St. Louis Cardinals will go against the San Francisco Giants in MLB action in Oracle Park, CA, on Sunday, May 8, 2022, at 4:05 PM ET. The St. Louis Cardinals are off to a strong start in 2022, sitting second in the National League Central and going 7-3 in their past 10 games.

 

The Cardinals traveled to San Francisco and won the first two matches of the series before losing one game on Saturday. Steven Matz, the Cardinals’ starter, faltered right away, going only two innings and surrendering five hits and eight runs.

 

In his brief appearance, he also walked three hitters and gave up three home runs. The Cardinals surrendered more than two runs in a game for the first time in four matches, falling 13-7 to the Giants. St. Louis presently has a record of 16-11 overall and 9-6 on the road.

Hudson, the starting pitcher on Sunday, made five appearances this season and went deeper and further into games each time. Hudson pitched 7 innings in each of his first two outings. In his last, the Cardinals are 3-2 as a team. Hudson pitches to contact, striking out only 18 batters in 25 innings.

St Louis Cardinals vs San Francisco Giants Predictions 5/8/2022

 

After five straight defeats, the Giants got back on track with a significant win on Saturday. The Giants fell to fourth place in the NL West Division after their five losses.

 

Despite the victory on Saturday night, San Francisco ace Logan Webb continued his troubling pattern of allowing more hits than innings thrown.

 

Webb got hit hard for the third time in as many outings, and he did not look like the pitcher that went almost a full calendar year without giving up a run since his 8-inning 2-hit effort against San Diego in April 13th.

 

In this game, the Giants’ offense took up the slack, scoring four runs in each of the first two innings on their way to 13 runs on 11 hits, three home runs, and eight walks against Cardinals pitching.

 

San Francisco will have to reclaim their form on the road when they finish a poor homestand on Sunday. The Giants are 2-7 in their 10-game homestand heading into Sunday’s game.

 

During this homestand, their pitching disappointed them, allowing roughly six runs per game. Rodon will try to turn the Giants’ fortunes around on Sunday. Rodon might be the finest candidate for the post. Rodon tossed 29 innings this season, allowing only 14 hits and 5 earned runs in the process.

 

The Giants went 3-2 with him, with the offense averaging only 3.8 runs per game. He is 1-1 at home, surrendering only 6 hits and 2 runs in 2 games.

 

  • The total went OVER in 6 of San Francisco’s last 8 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 13 of San Francisco’s last 20 matches against St. Louis.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of San Francisco’s last 6 matches at home.

St. Louis Cardinals vs San Francisco Giants. The MLB pick for this game is the San Francisco Giants. Despite the fact that it is just May, the Giants appear to be in a must-win situation. They won only two matches in their 13-game homestand, are starting their best pitcher, and are behind the Dodgers and Padres.

 

This season, Rodon was particularly efficient in terms of innings pitched and runs surrendered. Rodon is practically a lock for 6+ innings and 2 or fewer runs in this start.

 

Hudson pitched effectively this season, but the Cardinals are on the verge of a meltdown due to the number of balls put in play against their staff. They have one of baseball’s lowest strikeout percentages and will face a Giants offense that ranks 11th in hits per game. The Giants will win predicted at 4-2.
