ARIZONA DBACKS (70-68) @ SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS (62-77)
Game 1: Thursday, September 5th @ 7:15 PM
Trevor Cahill..........Ryan Vogelsong
Dbacks: Cahill pitched well against the Giants, allowing three runs over 6 1/3 innings. In his outing prior to that he was forced into relief duty in an 18-inning game against the Phillies, throwing four scoreless innings.
Giants: Vogelsong's offspeed pitches lacked sharpness in his last outing -- he said that his mechanics deserted him occasionally -- but he still recorded his third quality start in a row and fourth in his last five performances.
Game 2: Friday, September 6th @ 7:15 PM
Patrick Corbin......Yusmeiro Petit
Dbacks: Corbin struggled in his two most recent starts, allowing a combined 13 earned runs in 10 1/3 innings. The D-backs will monitor him closely in this start for any signs of fatigue as they consider reducing his workload down the stretch.
Game 3: Saturday September 7th @ 6:05 PM
Brandon McCarthy..........Matt Cain
Dbacks: McCarthy pitched well last time out against the Jays. He allowed two first-inning runs and then shut them out until allowing a two-run homer in the ninth. This is McCarthy's second start against the Giants in 2013.
Giants: Returning from his first-ever DL stint, Cain takes the ball vs. the D-backs, against whom he's 14-6 with a 3.39 ERA. Cain hasn't pitched since being hit by a line drive on the right forearm Aug. 22.
Game 4: Sunday September 8th @ 1:05 PM
Wade Miley..........Mad Bum
Dbacks: Miley pitched poorly his last time out against the Jays. After allowing a run in the first, he lost his composure during a frustrating second and allowed four runs. The 1 2/3-inning outing was the shortest of his career.
