Greek Giant

With Blake Snell’s injury the Giants have some pitching questions for their rotation. There are mumblings and rumblings about calling up Mason Black who just pitched a beauty in Sacto. I’m for it! Tonight another young starter, Kyle Harrison, takes the mound against the Pirates to open a three-game series at Willie Mays Field. He will face Quinn Priester who is 0-1 with an ERA of 8.15. Joey Bart will likely play a ton for the Pirates and try to severely damage his former team.

Tonight’s game is at 7:15 PM. Tomorrow’s game will be at 6:05 PM with Perez facing Hicks. Sunday’s series finale is scheduled for 1:05 PM with Jones and Keaton Winn listed as the starters.

So get ready for some serious Baseball Gods revenge, Giants fans. Would you like to know who the Pirates’ leading hitters are at press time? I thought you would!

Brian Reynolds with 15 RBIs, Joey Bart with three homers, and Conor Joe also with 15 RBIs. As you know two are former Giants and one was a highly-regarded Minor Leaguer when he was shipped to Steel Town for the McCutchen trade. OOOPS!

The Pirates come into the game with a record of 13 and 13, four games behind the Brewers in the National League’s Central Division. They have played relatively well and have out-performed expectations despite some occasional pitching and fielding woes. This could be an interesting series. It’s one the Giants need to win.
