Notes

Roster moves: The Giants made some moves prior to the game, optioning outfielder Steven Duggar and catcher Chadwick Tromp, and calling left-handed reliever Sam Selman and right-handed reliever Trevor Gott. Duggar and Tromp will presumably stay around for the rest of the series with the taxi squad.

The Phillies also made some roster moves, reportedly coronavirus-related.
