Pre-game And Lineups 9/12 Giants At Dodgers

Matt Cain (8-9, 4.37 ERA) will start for the Giants tonight facing Zack Greinke (14-3, 2.79 ERA) of the Dodgers. Cain had a rough start against the Dodgers back in July, he only pitched 2 1/3 innings, allowing six hits, eight earned runs, with four walks and one strikeout.  On a more positive note, Cain prior to that game was unbeaten in his previous 11 starts against the Dodgers.

Hunter Pence and Brandon Belt are hot right now. In September, Pence is hitting .400 while Belt is hitting .417. We need early support tonight for Cain.

Tonight will be the first time the Giants see Brian Wilson in Dodger blue. I’m officially over it.

Lineups

The Giants announced that Jeremy Affeldt has been reinstated from the DL today.

I’m really hoping the Dodgers don’t clinch with the Giants there. It will be painful to us all. The Dodgers are currently 85-60 and the Giants are 66-80.

The Giants organization just announced a Bryan Stow Fundraiser  on Tuesday, 9/24 vs. LAD 7:15 p.m. You can buy special event tickets here. Ten dollars from every ticket sold goes directly back to The Bryan Stow Fund.
