Giants Look Ahead To Big Cardinals Series

By Chandler Guadagnin

After being swept at home in a three game series at the hands of the San Diego Padres, the Giants turn their attention to their next opponent, the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals, who trail the Giants by a half game in the National League Wild Card race, come to San Francisco for a four game series against the Giants.

San Francisco, who is now 5 and 9 in the month of September and 21 and 36 since the All-Star Break, look to turn around their dismal second-half of the season. The Giants have an abhorrent post-All Star batting average of .250. Some keys to the series are:

  • Wake up the bats
  • Work the count
  • Bullpen must stand strong

In a series that is so key for both teams, here are the probable pitching matchups for the series:

Cueto (15-5) 2.90 ERA vs Wainwright (11-8) 4.45 ERA

Moore (10-11) 4.08 ERA vs Weaver (1-2) 3.48 ERA

Samardzija (11-10) 4.07 ERA vs Leake (9-10) 4.60 ERA

Suarez (3-3) 4.20 ERA vs Garcia (10-12) 4.65 ERA

Following the loss to the Padres, the Giants stand 5 games out of first place in the NL West and are in first place in the NL Wild Card, with a 0.5 game lead over the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals for the first spot.
