Giants Visit Great White North to Conclude Road Trip

Greek Giant

Our beloved San Franciscan baseballers conclude an eight game road trip with two games in Toronto beginning tonight. The Giants are currently 2-4 on this trip. Two wins in Canada can redeem this voyage East and give the Giants a little old-fashioned momentum heading back home to face the New York Yankees this weekend.

Tonight Jeff Samardzija faces Trent Thornton. First pitch is at 7:07 Joe Carter Time.

The Blue Jays are 11-12 and interestingly, own a +7 in run differential. This game will mark Kevin Pillar’s first visit to the Queen City since he was traded a month ago.

Evan Longoria has a long history facing the Blue Jays and his numbers are not too shabby:  a .285 average  with 24 homers and 124 RBIs in 171 games.
