San Francisco Giants
Denard Span scored on a wild pitch from Daniel Hudson in the eleventh inning on Saturday and the Giants extended their winning streak to five games by a score of 2-1 over the Pirates.
Span walked with one out in the final inning, moved to second on a passed ball, third on a single and came home when Hudson uncorked one to the backstop. Sam Dyson gave up a hit in the bottom half but recorded his first save as a Giant.
Jeff Samardzija starts the finale as San Francisco attempts to sweep its second straight series and complete a perfect week.
His contact approach has been effective in some ways. Samardzija has walked just 13 in 105 innings, which helps explain his 1.13 WHIP. But the ERA remains high at 4.63 and the record dismal at 3-9.
The Pirates’ offense had a run on the board and was threatening in the sixth when Matt Moore came out of the game after allowing four hits and walking six.
Pittsburgh couldn’t capitalize on anything that inning, nor for the rest of the game as five San Francisco relief pitchers traversed 5.1 scoreless innings.
Chad Kuhl went six innings for the first time in 16 starts this season, however. He gave up two hits and a run and threw 75 pitches.
Trevor Williams starts on Sunday. The Pirates have lost Williams’ last three starts but he hasn’t pitched poorly in any of them. He gave up two earned in seven innings the last time and three earned in six innings and then five in the two before that.

Neither offense has been very good to its respective starter this season. This one almost feels like a coin flip with the Pirates having a small advantage at home.
