Oakland Athletics vs. San Francisco Giants, the first game was already history, the Athletics lost the first game 1-5, but the hopes are not lost, the team wants to win the second game to tie the series. The Giants know that if they win this second game they will win the series and that’s why tonight they bring in one of their best pitchers.
Oakland Athletics: We can win the series.
The Athletics have good numbers at home, 24 wins and 22 losses, 52.2% effectiveness, are not bad numbers for a team that has not done very well during the season. 6-4 for the Athletics in the last 10 games, they won the series against the Padres 2-0, Indians 2-1, Angels 2-1 and had been swept by Astros 0-3 at home. The offense has had a fundamental role, despite not scoring many runs, the team has won most of the games since June 14 at home.
Trevor Cahill will open the game against the Giants, this is the third game for Jackson in 2018. One victory and one defeat, 3.10 ERA and 1,032 WHIP. Jackson’s numbers have never been good, 10 years in MLB and his best years were in 2010.
San Francisco Giants: We were smart during the first game.
The first game was 100% dominated by the Giants, although the Athletics scored the first run of the game in the second inning, after the Giants scored 5 runs between the fourth and eighth innings. The Giants arrive with 20 wins and 29 defeats to the home of the Athletics, plus the team is 5-5 in the last 10 games on the road.
Madison Bumgarner will come out to defend the series, he is probably the key tool for this game, 3 wins and 3 losses, 2.90 ERA and 1,118 WHIP. Last year was terrible for Bumgarner with 4-9, he has not had a good year since 2016.
