The San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres will begin a three-game series when the two National League West rivals collide at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Monday night. San Diego has dropped two in a row and is 3-6 in its last nine contests. The Giants are in the midst of a four-game losing streak.

Another losing season

The Padres have optimism for the future with a stable of promising young players, but that does not matter right now. They will finish in last place for the second time in three years and miss the playoffs for a 12th straight season. San Diego is 8-11 in September after suffering a 14-0 loss to the Dodgers this past Sunday, but 23-year-old right fielder Franmil Reyes is batting .328 with 10 RBIs this month. Unfortunately for Reyes, he has gone 0-for-8 in his last two games. Utility man Wil Myers is 6-for-16 with two doubles, a homer, and four RBIs during his four-game hitting streak.

Right-hander Bryan Mitchell (1-4, 6.16 ERA) is taking the mound for San Diego on Monday. Mitchell began the month with two strong performances before giving up four runs and nine hits (two homers) in 5.0 innings in a loss to the Giants last Monday. The 27-year-old allowed two runs on six hits and five walks over 11.0 frames in his first two September starts. San Francisco’s Brandon Crawford is 3-for-4 with a homer against Mitchell, who is 1-0 with a 3.96 ERA on the road compared to 0-4 with a 7.55 ERA at home.

Coming to a merciful end

The Giants complete a disappointing month–and season as a whole–with a six-game home-stand that begins with three contests against the Padres. San Francisco has dropped four straight following Sunday’s 9-2 setback at St. Louis and has managed just four victories in 20 games during September, scoring a major league-low 55 runs during this stretch. Crawford provided the only offense on Sunday with a two-run homer for San Francisco, which has allowed 27 runs during its losing streak but owns a 41-34 record at home this season.

Derek Holland (7-8, 3.57 ERA) will oppose Mitchell on Monday. The left-hander has not lost since July 10 and he is unbeaten in his last 13 starts after escaping with a no-decision against San Diego last Tuesday despite surrendering four runs in 5.0 innings. The 31-year-old had strung together four straight quality starts before that outing, recording one victory while yielding five runs over 24.1 innings. San Diego’s Eric Hosmer is 9-for-24 with two doubles and a homer against Holland, who is 1-1 with a 6.39 ERA lifetime against the Padres.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

San Francisco catcher/first baseman Aramis Garcia has gone 14-for-41 with three homers and seven RBIs in 14 contests during his first stint in the major leagues. The Giants already have clinched the season series, winning 10 of the 16 meetings–including five of seven at home. With Holland on the mound, more success should be in the cards.

Prediction: San Francisco Giants

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Holland has been outstanding of late, while Mitchell has at least shown some improvement in September. San Francisco’s offense has been the worst in all of baseball this month. The under is 9-1-1 in the Padres’ last 11 series openers. It is also 18-7- in the Giants’ last 26 overall, 19-7-2 in their last 28 at home, 26-9-2 in their last 37 against the National League West, 18-7-1 in their last 26 against right-handed starters, and 6-1 in Holland’s last seven starts. Look for this one to stay under the total.
