San Francisco Giants vs New York Yankees 4/1/2023 Picks, Analysis and Predictions

In a highly anticipated MLB matchup, the San Francisco Giants will face off against the New York Yankees on Saturday, April 1, 2023, at Yankee Stadium in New York. The Giants’ season got off to a disappointing start with a 5-0 loss against the Yankees on Thursday, marking their sixth consecutive road game against American League opponents to start the season. San Francisco’s interleague record has been subpar, having lost their last five interleague matches.

During the loss, the Giants struggled to get their offense going and were limited to just four hits. Thairo Estrada, who previously played for the Yankees before joining the Giants in 2021, accounted for two of those hits. Despite having a power-packed lineup that ranked in the top five in home runs at the start of the season, the Giants struggled to maintain their hitting momentum, with Estrada batting .260 last season (183). In 2022, the team faced difficulties reaching base, as evident by their 15th place on-base percentage ranking (.315) and 23rd place batting average ranking (.234). San Francisco’s opening game shutout could be a cause for concern as the team attempts to develop their offensive strategies.

  • The total stayed UNDER in 5 of San Francisco’s last 5 games on the road against the NY Yankees.
  • San Francisco is 0-5 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the American League.
  • The total went OVER in 8 of San Francisco’s last 12 games against an opponent in the AL East.

On opening day, Gerritt Cole pitched six scoreless innings while striking out 11 batters to lead the New York Yankees to a 5-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants. The Yankees won four consecutive interleague games thanks to Cole, who only gave up three hits and two walks.

Given that New York had the third-best ERA (3.30) in 2022, it is not unexpected that they started the year with a shutout. They had 16 when the year before ended. For New York, Clarke Schmidt will get things going. He only made five starts in his career, three of them came last year. Schmidt played in 29 games last season, going 5-5 with a 3.12 ERA. In his lone start in September, he gave up two runs over 4.1 innings.

  • The total stayed UNDER in 5 of NY Yankees’ last 5 games at home against San Francisco.
  • The NY Yankees are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the National League.
  • The Yankees are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the NL West Division.

San Francisco Giants vs New York Yankees. The MLB pick for this game is the New York Yankees. While San Francisco’s pitching lineup may appear superior, their lackluster performance in the opening game with only four hits has left them seemingly depleted. While it would be unwise to expect the Yankees to replicate a shutout against the Giants, there are also doubts about San Francisco’s ability to score heavily in this game. However, even if starting pitcher Clarke Schmidt falters, the Yankees have ample bullpen support to keep the game tightly contested. Schmidt showcased his strength last season and, with the Yankees’ deep batting lineup, they are well-positioned to capitalize on their opportunities. In contrast, while Alex Cobb may find some success, it would be unrealistic to expect him to outperform Logan Webb. In the end, it is predicted that the New York Yankees will triumph over the San Francisco Giants with a score of 6-3.
