Friday’s series opener between the San Francisco Giants and Houston Astros did not go particularly well. Here’s hoping that the second game is a touch more successful.

There’s good news. Great news, even. Kris Bryant is joining the Giants, after a deadline deal. He will not, however, be available for today’s game. LHP Tony Watson, the Giants other deadline acquisition, will be.

He’ll start behind LHP Alex Wood, who enters the game with a 3.65 ERA, a 3.68 FIP, and 102 strikeouts to 30 walks in 93.2 innings. He’ll be opposed by former Cy Young Award winner RHP Zack Greinke, who carries a 3.48 ERA and 4.20 FIP, with 93 strikeouts to 26 walks in 126.2 innings.

Programming note: There will not be a recap for today’s game.
