When We Last Met
The Detroit Tigers were swept by the Giants in the 2012 World Series. Nothing more really needs to be said about that.
Rick Porcello(15-9, 3.10 ERA) had a rough start in his last outing and was completely abandoned by the defense behind him. He went 6,2 innings, gave up 6 runs, 3 earned on 11 hits and one walk. Porcello has been strong all season, with three complete game shut outs. He is 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA against the Giants in his career.
Jake Peavy(4-13, 4.15 ERA) has gone at least seven innings and has given up three runs or fewer in his last four starts, and since his trade to the Giants from Boston, he’s gone under seven innings just one time. He is 4-6 with a 5.03 ERA in 82.1 innings in his career against the Detroit Tigers.
