The San Francisco Giants will attempt a sweep to close out this three-day series against the Colorado Rockies today at Oracle Park.

Taking the mound for the Giants will be Alex Cobb, who enters today’s game with a 4.80 ERA, 2.22 FIP, with 22 strikeouts to six walks in 15 innings of work. His last start was against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, in which he allowed two runs on three hits with eight strikeouts and a walk in five innings.

He’ll be facing off against Chad Kuhl, who enters today’s game with a 1.82 ERA, 3.39 FIP with 22 strikeouts to nine walks in 29.2 innings pitched. His last start was against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, in which he allowed one run on three hits with five strikeouts and two walks in six innings.

The Giants haven’t faced Kuhl too often, but players to watch are Joc Pederson and Austin Slater, who have each hit a home run off of him.

Also, Evan Longoria is back!
