San Francisco Giants (56-44) at Philadelphia Phillies (43-57)
SFG: Madison Bumgarner (11-7, 3.38)
PHI: A.J Burnett (6-9, 4.08)
A Note for Tonight:
Both teams are looking for its starter to go deep into tonight’s game after a 14 inning affair last night. That might be a bit easier for the Giants who send Madison Bumgarner to the mound. Away from his home park of AT&T field Bumgarner is sporting a 1.94 ERA this season. However, in his career against the Phillies Bumgarner has compiled a 4.05 ERA.
This could be the last game Phillies fans see A.J. Burnett in red pinstripes. This will be his last start before the July 31st non waiver trade deadline, and the right hander is garnering some serious interest from the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates will have scouts at tonight’s game, as will a handful of other teams. Here’s hoping tonight ends in a nice timely fashion!
Lineup: Revere CF / Rollins SS / Utley 2B / Byrd RF / Ruiz C / Brown LF / Ruf 1B / Blanco 3B / Burnett P
