San Francisco could clinch the NL West with a win. This is a pitching rematch from Sept. 21, which the Giants won 6-5 by scoring one run in the top of the ninth. Neither Gausman nor Musgrove threw well in that game.
San Francisco is in excellent form while San Diego has really gone into the tank over the last month. Gausman has pitched well during day games this and has 3.84 ERA in five games against San Diego, but he has been battered in each of his last two starts against the Padres. 

The Giants hitters have fared well against Musgrove, who has allowed eight runs over the last two games against San Francisco, over his career as they have produced a .924 OPS. San Francisco has won eight of Gausman’s last 11 starts.
