San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants could not hold on to their lead Thursday, surrendering an 8-7 comeback victory. In 2020, the Giants finished 29-31 and third in the NL West.
The Giants have plenty of verterans in their lineup from a team that played well offensively last year. Brandon Crawford, Buster Posey, Mike Yastrzemski and Evan Longoria are all back in the fold to anchor the Giants lineup. Yastrzemski had a career year last season and Longoria has loomed sharp through the spring
Hitting wise, the Giants offense was efficient last season. San Francisco averaged 5 runs a game, good for eighth in the league. As a team, they posted 290 RBI’s as well as 532 hits last season, while their team batting average sat at .263.
Johnny Cueto is on the mound for San Francisco. The righty was 2-3 with an ERA of 5.40, 56 Ks and 26 BBs in 2020.
The Seattle Mariners ended last season 27-33, marking another year in which they missed out on the playoffs. The Mariners have most of their lineup back from 2020 as well as their pitching staff.
Seattle was led by Kyle Seager during the spring training, as the veteran third baseman hit .350. The Mariners put up six runs in the eighth inning and eventually took down the Giants on a walk-off in the 10th.
The Mariners have James Paxton, Kendall Graveman and Yusei Kikuchi to surround Gonzales in the rotation. The Mariners ranked 14th last year in runs allowed. Kikuchi gets the start on Friday after going 2-4 with an ERA of 5.17, 47 Ks and 20 BBs in 2020.
Seattle hit just .226 as a team last year with an on-base percentage of .309. The Mariners ranked 23rd with 4.23 runs a game last year and will need more production from players like Kyle Lewis, JP Crawford and Kyle Seager.
