When We Last Met

The Detroit Tigers were spanked by the Giants last night after an extended rain delay, Rick Porcello had another lackluster start and the Tigers’ bats were unable to hit starter Jake Peavy, or the Giant’s bullpen.

Pitching Matchup

David Price(13-10, 3.25 ERA) bounced back well against the Cleveland Indians after his terrible start against the Yankees, going 7 innings, and giving up 1 run on 8 hits and 2 walks, striking out 8. Price has faced the Giants only once in his career, and he did not get the win despite pitching 9 innings and giving up only one run on 5 hits, giving him an ERA of 1.00.

Madison Bumgarner(16-9, 2.97 ERA) went 6 innings in his last start against the Milwaukee Brewers, giving up one run on five hits. Bumgarner has only pitched against the Detroit Tigers once, lasting 7.1 innings, and giving up 1 run on 5 hits, but it wasn’t enough to notch the win. His ERA against the Tigers is 1.23.
