Madison Bumgarner vs. Bronson Arroyo.

National League Division Series - Cincinnati Reds v. San Francisco Giants - Game Two

Due to the coronavirus outbreak suspending the 2020 MLB season, we’re rewatching the three San Francisco Giants postseason runs, game-by-game, on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday nights at 6 p.m. PT, with a gamethread for each.


After dropping Game 1 by a score of 5-2, the San Francisco Giants will try and even up the 2012 NLDS against the Cincinnati Reds with a second and final home game.

Win, and things are all tied up. Lose, and they’ll have the daunting task of needing to win three in a row, all on the road. That sure would be wild.

The Giants are sending left-hander Madison Bumgarner to the mound. Bumgarner finished the year with a 16-11 record, a 3.37 ERA, a 3.50 FIP, and 191 strikeouts in 208.1 innings.

The Reds are countering with right-hander Bronson Arroyo, who finished the year with a 12-10 record, a 3.74 ERA, a 4.09 FIP, and 129 strikeouts in 202 innings.
