The San Francisco Giants are hoping to build on a wild series opener win on Monday, though I think they’d be happy to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks in more convincing fashion tonight.

To do that they’ll have to score runs on one of their franchise legends, Madison Bumgarner. It’s only the second time the Giants will have faced Bumgarner since he left the organization after the 2019 season, and it’s the first time with fans in attendance. It won’t be the Oracle Park fans, but Phoenix tends to draw a fair number of Giants fans.

It’s not like Diamondbacks fans want to go to games right now, after all.
