The San Francisco Giants take on the Kansas City Royals again today at Oracle Park for game two of this three-game series.

Taking the mound for the Giants will be right-hander Logan Webb, who enters today’s game with a 3.77 ERA, 3.19 FIP, with 59 strikeouts to 17 walks in 71.2 innings pitched. Webb’s last start was in the Giants’ 4-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies last Thursday, in which he allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits with three strikeouts and a walk in five and two thirds innings.

He’ll be facing off against Royals left-hander Kris Bubic, who enters today’s game with a 9.13 ERA, 6.53 FIP, with 18 strikeouts to 16 walks in 22.2 innings pitched. His last start was in the Royals’ 7-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles last Thursday, in which he allowed four runs on six hits with five strikeouts to two walks in four and a third innings pitched.

The only Giants players who’ve seen Bubic before are Curt Casali and Austin Wynns, who each have a .500 average in two at-bats.
