    Wins the Series: San Francisco Giants @ Philadelphia Phillies - July 21st - 24th



    .........................

    SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS (54-44) @ PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES (43-55)

    CITIZENS BANK PARK


    Game 1: Monday, July 21st @ 4:05 PM

    VS.
    Ryan Vogelsong..........Cliff Lee

    Code:
                                Vogelsong         Lee
                                19       Starts   10
                                5        Wins     4
                                7        Losses   4         
                                3.86     ERA      3.18                  
                                1.28     WHIP     1.28                  
                                109.2    IP       68.0
                                94       K's      61
                                32       BB's     9

    Scouting Report:
    Giants: Vogelsong has lost four consecutive starts, but it's not his fault. He's given up eight earned runs in 24 2/3 innings (2.92 ERA) in those outings, but has been saddled with the loss each time as he's been provided zero runs of support.

    Phillies: Lee finally rejoins the rotation after landing on the disabled list in late May with a strained left elbow. He will make two starts before the July 21 non-waiver Trade Deadline, which could be his audition for contending teams.

    Game 2: Tuesday, July 22nd @ 4:05 PM


    VS.
    Yusmeiro Petit......Roberto Hernandez

    Code:
                                Petit            Hernandez        
                     (26 games) 5       Starts    17 (20 games)
                                3        Wins     4
                                3        Losses   8         
                                3.86     ERA      4.22                  
                                1.16     WHIP     1.45                  
                                63.0     IP       100.1
                                66       K's      70
                                15       BB's     51

    Scouting Report:
    Giants:Cain was moved to the end of the rotation after being the team's No. 2 starter for the first half of the season. The team is hopeful he'll benefit from the extra rest provided by the All-Star break and his newly relegated place in the order.

    Phillies: Hernandez had the type of first half that may be expected of a No. 5 starter. He pitched OK but consistently had problems pitching past the sixth inning. That is something that needs to improve in the second half.

    Game 3: Wednesday, July 23rd @ 4:05 PM

    VS.
    Madison Bumgarner..........AJ Burnett

    Code:
                                Bumgarner          Burnett 
                                21       Starts   21 
                                11       Wins     6
                                7        Losses   9         
                                3.38     ERA      4.08                  
                                1.24     WHIP     1.36                  
                                133.0    IP       136.2
                                135      K's      113
                                34       BB's     58

    Scouting Report:
    Giants: Bumgarner didn't get a ton of rest during the break, but it didn't seem like it in his start in Miami on Friday. In six innings, he allowed just four hits and one run on a homer. He upped his season strikeout count to 135 with seven K's.

    Phillies: With one win in his last five starts, Burnett is coming off his shortest outing since mid-May (five innings at Atlanta). He's 6-3 with a 2.30 career ERA against San Francisco.
    Game 4: Thursday, July 24th @ 10:05 AM

    Tim Hudson..........Cole Hamels

                                1.10     WHIP     1.17                  
                                126.1    IP       114.1
                                81       K's      115
                                19       BB's     38
    [/CENTER]

    Scouting Report:
    Giants: The All-Star break did Hudson some good. In his last start against the Marlins on Saturday, he threw 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball and walked nary a batter.

    Phillies: Unbeaten in three straight starts despite being saddled with low run support all season, Hamels is coming off a magnificent effort in Atlanta and seeks to even his record and win back-to-back starts for the first time in 2014.

    If this were a three game set I would have said 2/3 but a four game set with Petit, split.

    Cain placed on DL. Expect Petit to pitch game 2, right?

    Also, really blows that it seems like against the Dodgers this coming weekend, the Giants will throw out Vogelsong, Lincecum, and Petit. Mattingly set up his rotation so we will see Kershaw and Greinke.

    Still to early to set rotations but the Giants have had luck against the Dodgers. they will beat one of the two.

    Hey dumbass Bochy, Crawford is hitting at an All-Star level against lefties, but let's put him 7th, behind a AAA player and a guy with a broken back.

    Meh....I don't have a problem with this lineup. Don't buy Crawford's production vs. LHP being legit either. A few months of success doesn't outweigh years of ineptitude.

    And so he puts Crawford in the 2 hole, he strikes out 3 times and hits a weak pop up, all the while Scutaro goes 3 for 4 in the 7 spot.

    I'm still not sold that guys at computers are more adept at setting a big league lineup than the Bochuff hired to do the job

    Facts are facts though. Can't dispute them. It's not like these guys don't know anything about baseball. But I'm also not saying you have to rely 100% on stats.

    P.S. But there is no more Bochuff since we have no Huff anymore. It is now just Sabochy. He lost a nickname. Poor guy.
