* 29 gamesCode:11* Starts 10 5 Wins 2 2 Losses 2 2.42 ERA 2.82 1.14 WHIP 1.15 93.0 IP 60.2 83 K's 41 36 BB's 26
Giants: The Marlins are among the nine teams for which the well-traveled Gaudin has toiled. He was 4-2 with a 4.54 ERA in 46 relief appearances with Miami last year. Though Gaudin is 4-0 on the road, all five homers he has allowed were hit away from home.
Fish: Remarkably, Eovaldi has not received as much as one run of support in five straight starts. He comes off a no-decision at Atlanta, where he matched a career high with eight strikeouts in seven scoreless innings.
Game 2: Saturday, August 17th @ 4:10 PM
Matt Cain......Henderson Alvarez

Giants: Interestingly, Cain's road ERA (3.90) is a full run better than his home ERA at pitcher-friendly AT&T Park. However, he has surrendered 11 home runs in 10 road starts, compared with seven long balls in 14 home outings.
Fish: Alvarez's streak of 49 straight innings without allowing a home run was snapped at Atlanta on Sunday. The Braves' Freddie Freeman belted a three-run shot, and Alvarez gave up four runs in six innings in a no-decision.

GUESTS SIGN UP HERE!!!!!!Scouting Report:
Giants: Bumgarner has recorded a 1.80 ERA in his last 11 starts, including his last outing, a rain-shortened, four-inning affair at Washington. The All-Star is on his way to lowering his WHIP for the third consecutive season.
Fish: Koehler worked 5 1/3 innings and allowed nine hits and five earned runs last Monday in a loss at Kansas City. He was late covering first on two ground balls and will strive to make that correction.
