Here is some info on where to watch and what to expect for the primetime game on Sunday, May 5.

ESPN will host Sunday Night Baseball all season.

San Fransisco Giants (15-19) @ Philadelphia Phillies (23-11), 7:00 p.m. EST, ESPN

Odds: Giants -115 (ESPNBet)

Probable Starters: Logan Webb (SF) 3-2, 2.98 ERA vs Taijuan Walker (PHI) 1-0, 8.53 ERA

Preview: The Phillies hold the best record in baseball and have won eight of their last ten games, including the first two of this three-game set against the Giants. However, they will have to continue without their star shortstop, Trea Turner, as he is expected to miss at least six weeks dealing with a hamstring injury. Turner leads the Phillies in runs, hits, and stolen bases.

This will be Walker’s second start of the season. He spent the beginning of the season on the 15-day injured list, dealing with right shoulder soreness. He got hit around in his first start, allowing six runs on eight hits in six and a third innings. Luckily for him, that was good enough to earn the victory. Over his career, he has started nine games against the Giants and has gone 3-3 with a 4.40 ERA.

For the Giants, Logan Webb might be the best pitcher you haven’t heard of. Debuting in 2019, the sinkerballer quickly became the ace in the Giants’ rotation and has always relied on great defense behind him. Webb has dominated at home in his career, posting a 2.64 ERA, but has struggled on the road, going a mediocre 19-18 with an ERA of 4.14. In his career, he has not fared well in Philadelphia; in two starts, he has an ERA of 5.25.

Prediction: Logan Webb is a great young pitcher who will dominate for a long time, but it is tough to trust him until he can figure out how to translate that success to the road.
