  2. LF — Alex Dickerson (L) — .238/.304/.452 — 112 OPS+

  4. 3B — Evan Longoria (R) — .231/.256/.359 — 73 OPS+
  5. DH — Wilmer Flores (R) — .276/306/.466 — 116 OPS+
  6. RF — Austin Slater (R) — .333/.450/.667 — 213 OPS+
  7. SS — Brandon Crawford (L) — .178/.229/.178 — 19 OPS+
  8. C — Chadwick Tromp (R) — .241/.233/.483 — 97 OPS+
  9. 2B — Mauricio Dubón (R) — .216/.231/.324 — 56 OPS+
    LHP — Tyler Anderson — 2.19 ERA, 5.95 FIP, 7 K and 8 BB in 12.1 IP

And the Astros lineup is exactly the same.

  1. 2B — Jose Altuve (R) — .183/.256/.338 — 64 OPS+
  2. RF — Josh Reddick (L) — .268/.339/.411 — 107 OPS+
  3. 3B — Alex Bregman (R) — .224/.316/.448 — 109 OPS+
  4. DH — Michael Brantley (L) — .308/.390/.481 — 141 OPS+
  5. 1B — Yuli Gurriel (R) — .274/.370/.500 — 139 OPS+
  6. SS — Carlos Correa (R) — .345/.433/.517 — 163 OPS+
  7. LF — Kyle Tucker (L) — .190/.230/.328 — 53 OPS+
  8. C — Martin Maldonado (R) — .194/.370/.278 — 84 OPS+
  9. CF — Myles Straw (R) — .111/.111/.111 — -38 OPS+
    RHP — Brandon Bielak — 0.87 ERA, 3.41 FIP, 7 K and 6 BB in 10.1 IP

Notes

No Donnie Barrels: Donovan Solano is out due to some abdominal soreness.

No Panda: For the second consecutive night, Pablo Sandoval is sidelined despite a right-handed pitcher being on the mound. While Sandoval is with the team, and presumably available to pinch-hit, he’s apparently being held out due to dealing with a family matter.

Getting defensive: The Giants horrendous defense hit a low point on Monday, and a day later they might be putting out their best possible defensive lineup. That’s not saying much, but still.


Enjoy the baseball, friends. Apologies if that’s a tall ask.
