It’s series finale time. After this third straight game against the Cleveland Guardians, the San Francisco Giants will head to the Big Apple for four straight against the New York Mets, before heading to the nation’s capital.

And it’s morning baseball for those of us on the west coast!

The Giants are giving the ball to lefty Alex Wood, who allowed five hits, one walk, and two earned runs in his first start of the year, with six strikeouts in 4.1 innings. A year ago he posted a 3.83 ERA and a 3.48 FIP, with 152 strikeouts to 39 walks in 138.2 innings.

On the other side is yet another righty from the Guardians, Aaron Civale. In his first start of the year, Civale allowed four hits, three walks, and two earned runs in 3.1 innings, with three strikeouts. In 2021 he had a 3.84 ERA, a 4.83 FIP, and 99 strikeouts to 31 walks in 124.1 innings.
