Apple TV+ will host Friday’s matchup between the Philadelphia Phillies and the San Francisco Giants with first pitch set for 10:15 p.m. ET at Oracle Park in San Francisco, CA. Kyle Gibson (9-5, 4.08 ERA) will be the Phillies’ starting pitcher, and Alex Cobb (4-6, 3.81 ERA) will start for the Giants.

San Francisco is coming off a tough showing against the Padres, dropping three in a row by a single run. They’ve been outscored by 21 runs in their last ten games, going 2-8 despite solid performances from outfielder Joc Pederson, who has gone 9-for-24 with two home runs over the same stretch.

The Phillies are 7-3 in their last ten as they continue to hang in the hunt for a Wild Card spot amidst a strong NL East. After dropping two to the Diamondbacks this week, they put up 18 runs in their most recent game.

Odds, picks & predictions

Run Line: Phillies -1.5
Run total: 7.5
Moneyline odds: Giants -120, Phillies +100

Moneyline pick: Phillies +100

After dropping two to Arizona this week, they need to step up to stay in the Wild Card hunt now that it’s September. The Giants have hit a rough patch, and Gibson and the Phillies should be able to take advantage of that tonight.

Player prop pick: Alec Bohm over 1.5 hits (+165)

The Phillies third baseman has gone 12-for-38 over the past ten games, and Cobb has allowed 40 hits over his last 40.2 innings pitched.
