Tonight’s Game: Giants (31-50) VS Pirates (37-42) at Roberto Clemente Park, 7:05 PM
Johnny Cueto (5-7, 4.20) VS Gerritt Cole (6-6, 4.11)

That off day felt like a week. Welcome to the second half of the season. Gerritt Cole is pitching for the Pirates. Per ESPN: “Johnny¬†Cueto has had more success against the Pirates than against any other opponent, going 19-4 with a 2.10 ERA in 29 career starts.”

Five Questions

  1. Is Roberto Clemente Park the second most beautiful ballfield in the bigs?
  2. Will Johnny Cueto end up with a winning record this season?
  3. How should the Giants pitch to Andrew McCutcheon, the Pirates’ hottest hitter?
  4. Will the day and a half off help the Giants?
  5. Should the Giants trade Eduardo Nunez?
