The San Francisco Giants kick off a four-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals tonight at Oracle Park.

It’ll be another bullpen game today, with Mauricio Llovera getting the opener role. Llovera has appeared in three games for the Giants since being called up during the Covid-19 wave this last week, for a total of three innings, allowing one run on three hits between the three.

The Giants will be facing Miles Mikolas, who enters tonight’s game with a 1.52 ERA, 2.87 FIP with 25 strikeouts to four walks in 29.2 innings pitched. His last start was against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday, where he went seven innings, allowing two runs on four hits, striking out seven in what amounted to an 0-2 loss.

Brandon Crawford has a .250 average against Mikolas with a home run, and Austin Slater has a 1.000 average with a grand slam in one at-bat against him.
