San Francisco Giants
Friday night was all San Francisco. The Giants used 15 hits to put 10 runs on the board for Ty Blach, which was nine runs too many in a 10-0 win.
San Fran scored in each of the first three innings to open up a 5-0 lead for Ty Blach, who needed 112 pitches to complete his first career shutout. He gave up seven hits and didn’t walk a batter.
Either way, the Giants’ ‘pen will be well-rested for the weekend that begins with Johnny Cueto on Saturday. Cueto’s WHIP and BAA are both slightly up from his career numbers this season but its his ERA that is way up, more than a full run higher than his career mark.
He’s given up 68 hits in 70 innings this season and has only walked 18 compared to 68 K’s so it’s not as bad as the mid-4 ERA might suggest. That should be on its way down as the season continues to unfold.
So while the Giants trot out a well-established veteran, the Phillies will use yet another different starting pitcher this season and give Ben Lively his Major League debut.
The 25-year-old was 6-1 with a 2.40 ERA and a WHIP under 1.00 this season for the Iron Pigs of Lehigh Valley.
The Giants aren’t a bad matchup for a green rookie, on one hand because they don’t score very many runs. At the same time, they have some guys with experience who know how to give a rookie hell.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction: Lively holds his own but the Giants win.
No numbers on this one, likely because the Lively announcement didn’t come so long ago. I have the Giants -150 with a total of 8.0.

Would have liked the play this one. You know how I’ve ‘capped it, once those numbers are on the board. My sense is we could see an 8.5 or even a 9.0 with the total.
