The Giants made a series of moves on Tuesday, including adding Spencer Howard to the major league roster. Howard had a 5.90 ERA with 57 strikeouts against 17 walks in 39.2 frames for the Sacramento River Cats. There is a good chance that he gets into the game tonight.

On the other hand, Miller has a 4.38 ERA in 26 outings for the Giants this season. Interestingly, both Howard and Miller were originally drafted by the Phillies.

Who it hot?

The Giants have had their fair share of bullpen issues this season. The addition of Randy Rodríguez
could go a long way in fixing that. The rookie pitcher has not allowed a run in his last five outings. He did record his first career win on Monday after completing two scoreless frames against Philadelphia.

Who are the SF Giants facing?

It is a good thing that the Giants took the first game of the series. They will have their hands full with Zack Wheeler on the mound. The veteran pitcher has been one of the best starters for the past several seasons. He is off to another good start with a 2.53 ERA through 11 starts. This includes an outing against the Giants in which he allowed one unearned runs through seven innings in a 6-1 victory.
