Giants vs. Mets, 7/20

Lockett (0-1, 11.47 ERA) vs. Samardzija (7-7, 3.93 ERA)

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at San Francisco Giants Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

I’m an occasionally superstitious baseball fan, so it brings me no pleasure to report that I’ve jinxed the Giants today. I am not able to get to a computer to post these lineups properly.

By that I mean, I can’t do a soft line return on iOS, so the lineups are double-spaced. They’ve been single-spaced during this winning streak and since June 1st.

RF — Jeff McNeil

CF — Michael Conforto

C — Wilson Ramos

2B — Robinson Cano

3B — Todd Frazier

1B — Dominic Smith

LF — J.D. Davis

SS — Amed Rosario

SP —Walker Lockett

This is Lockett’s third major league start. He’s allowed 10 hits and 10 runs in 7.2 innings pitched. In this small sample, he’s thrown primarily a four-seamer around 92 and a changeup. It can be an effective combo, as witnessed by some of the Padres starters.

1B — Brandon Belt

C — Buster Posey

3B — Pablo Sandoval

LF — Alex Dickerson

SS — Brandon Crawford

RF — Mike Yastrzemski

CF — Kevin Pillar

2B — Donovan Solano

SP — Jeff Samardzija

Samardzija has been steady all year. Can he do it one more time and give the Giants a shot at matching their longest winning streak since 2016? Probably not... on account of the jinx.
