San Francisco Giants vs. Pittsburgh Pirates Free Pick - 8/23/13

The Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants collide in Game Two on Friday.

Pittsburgh flattened SF 10-5 with a seven-run fifth inning Thursday night. The Pirates opened the game ahead 3-0, with Andrew McCutchen’s RBI-single, followed by Garrett Jones and Jordy Mercer home runs. Matt Cain (8-8, 4.43 ERA), however, left early and so did the Giants after squaring things at three heading to the fifth.

Pittsburgh blew up the San Francisco bullpen with Pedro Alvarez’s double, Russell Martin’s sacrifice fly, Gaby Sanchez’s sac fly and Jose Tabata’s RBI-double. The Giants scored on Buster Posey’s sac fly, Marco Scutaro’s single and Brandon Crawford’s double.

SF sends Madison Bumgarner (11-7, 2.82 ERA) to the mound next. Bumgarner is 4-3 at AT&T Park toppling the Atlanta Braves, Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals allowing seven runs during 26.2 frames.

Bumgarner’s AT&T defeats have been to the Arizona Diamondbacks, Milwaukee Brewers and Philadelphia Phillies, surrendering 10 runs, nine earned, during 20 innings. Against Bumgarner, the Pirates are 11-of-48 with six RBIs, four belonging to Clint Barmes. The Giants are 4-6 in Bumgarner’s last 10 starts.

Charlie Morton (4-3, 3.67 ERA) gets the go next from Pittsburgh, who has tumbled three of his four August appearances. Morton, though, is 3-1 on the road, tripping up only to the Chicago Cubs 4-1 July 6, yielding four runs during six frames. Morton’s away victories came over the Cincinnati Reds, Miami Marlins and Washington Nationals, giving up seven runs, six earned, during 17 innings.

San Francisco stomped on Morton 10-0 June 13 in his first start of the year. Morton let in four runs, two earned, during five frames. The Giants are 29-of-82 with eight RBIs, a pair apiece Angel Pagan’s and Hunter Pence’s, versus Morton. The Pirates are 4-2 in Morton’s six road outings. I learned my lesson taking favored SF Thursday so I’m going with Pittsburgh here.
