Bumgarner has a shockingly high 6.20 ERA when pitching at home, but an impressive 1.88 ERA on the road. But in the month of May, he is 3-0 with a 2.88 ERA. Bumgarner hasn’t seen many of the Twins in previous matchups, but here is how they’ve hit off him in the past.
Nolasco, as most fans are aware, has been a nightmare for the Giants when pitching at AT&T Park. He was undefeated in San Francisco through 2012 and is currently 4-1 at AT&T with a 2.88 ERA.
Here’s how the Giants look against Nolasco. Pablo Sandoval has 18 ABs against him with a .500 batting average, 4 doubles and 3 home runs.
Sandoval has finally heated up offensively, hitting home runs Friday and Saturday against the Twins. In the last ten days, he has a .333 batting average with four home runs and nine RBIs.
The Giants enter today’s game with the highest winning percentage in the majors.
