The San Francisco Giants have so far had a pretty darn successful series against the Chicago Cubs. Even though the Cubbies entered the series having won nine of their last 10, and 14 of their last 17, the Giants took the first two games in somewhat convincing fashion.

There are still two left though, and the Giants get to send their ace to the mound for this one.

Camilo Doval back? Looks like Camilo Doval could be taking the spot left behind by Scott Kazmir’s DFA.
