Free MLB Pick:
The Oakland Athletics have essentially run away with the AL West as they sit 6 games above the Houston Astros, and a huge reason for that has been the emergence of Chris Bassitt as he has been dealing this season with a 2.92 ERA. The Athletics lost Matt Chapman to a season-ending injury which is a blow considering he has 10 HRs and 25 RBIs on the season, but he isn’t the only one who could produce in the lineup as Matt Olson has 13 HRs and 38 RBIs, Piscotty has 29 RBIs, and Canha has 26 RBIs. The San Francisco Giants will be throwing a solid arm in Trevor Cahill, but the problem has been their bullpen and considering Cahill hasn’t thrown very deep this season, I will back the A’s. Final Score Prediction, Oakland Athletics win 6-3.
