The books have set the bar too low tonight in this game between the San Francisco Giants and Tampa Bay Rays. Both starting pitchers are below-average to say the least, so I look for each lineup to have a big day at the plate in this one.

Guillermo Moscoso is no more than a fill-in starter in this league. He hasn't done that very well of late, either. Moscoso has gone 0-1 with a 10.80 ERA in his last three starts, allowing 16 earned runs and 30 base runners over 13 1/3 innings.

Roberto Hernandez has been overrated all season for the Rays. The right-hander has gone 6-11 with a 4.71 ERA in 20 starts this year. Hernandez is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.667 WHIP in one career start against San Francisco, while Moscoso is 0-1 with an 8.38 ERA and 2.172 WHIP in two career starts against Tampa Bay.

San Francisco is 22-8 OVER (+14.7 Units) vs. a starting pitcher with good control (less than 1.75 BB's/start) this season. The Giants are 26-13 OVER (+12.5 Units) when the total is 8 to 8.5 over the last 2 seasons. Take the OVER in this game Sunday.
