The 24-year-old is 6-0 with a 2.24 ERA and a 1.008 WHIP in the second half of the season.

Verdict

San Francisco and Webb enter the game in outstanding form. While Webb has struggled in his last two road starts, allowing eight runs and 17 hits in13 innings, he has pitched fairly well on the road (3.68 ERA) and during the day (3.25 ERA). He has not had great success against the Padres in his career. However, the Giants have won each of Webb’s last eight starts and are 19-4 in his 23 starts this season. San Francisco has been great in day games.
 
San Diego is not in-form and Darvish has been terrible post-All-star break. Darvish, who has pitched unevenly in his last four home starts, owns a 3.19 ERA at Petco Park this season. Darvish has served up six home runs and 10 runs in 16.1 innings of work against the Giants this year as he gave up eight runs and four long balls in his last outing versus them (Sept. 13). San Diego is 23-27 in afternoon games.
