Padres (Stauffer) vs. Giants (Cain) UNDER 6 RUNS

Tim Stauffer has a 2.97 ERA on the season and has allowed 2 runs or less in each of his last 5 starts, good for a 1.71 ERA in his last 3 starts. In his last 14 innings pitched on the road, he has allowed a combined 2 earned runs, pitching at the Twins and at the Nationals. He has really started to turn things around at the beginning of June and has been red hot. He also has a good 3.19 ERA in 36.2 innings pitched against the Giants. Matt Cain has a 3.02 ERA for the season and has allowed 3 runs or less in 7 out of his last 10 starts. Like Stauffer, he too has pitched much better lately. In his last 3 home starts, he has pitched a combined 23 innings and allowed a total of 2 runs against the Indians, Nationals and Rockies. He also has pitched 14 scoreless innings in his last 2 starts, at home vs. the Indians and on the road at the Cubs. He has a miniscule 0.43 ERA in his last 3 starts. In the many innings pitched against the Padres (139), he has a 3.43 ERA against them. The posted number for the total is low, but both pitchers have been extremely hot, both lineups have had their struggles this season and both teams have above average bullpens. BET UNDER 6
