Harrison has quietly had a solid start to the year. He is coming off of the best outing of his young career, recording seven scoreless innings against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. Colorado's home ballpark can be a brutal experience for pitchers, but Harrison was up for the challenge.

On the year, the 22-year-old hurler has registered a 3.20 ERA, 3.82 FIP, 1.22 WHIP, 8.0 K/9, and a 3.33 SO/W ratio through eight starts. He was a bit too prone to the long ball at the start of the year, but has not yielded a home run in his last four outings.

Who it hot?

The Giants outfield defense had a rough night on Friday, but responded nicely on Saturday. Heliot Ramos recorded two outfield assists, whereas Mike Yastrzemski added one of his own in Saturday's 5-1 victory.

Who are the SF Giants facing?

The Giants will face off against Frankie Montas. The veteran pitcher has 3.55 ERA through six starts after making just one appearance last season. Montas has faced the Giants twice before, posting a 1.50 ERA with 14 strikeouts against five walks in 12 frames.
