The San Francisco Giants attempt to avoid the sweep by the Kansas City Royals today at Oracle Park.

Taking the mound for the Giants will be right-hander Anthony DeSclafani. DeSclafani’s first start of the season was a good one. In the Giants’ 12-3 win over the Chicago White Sox on Monday, he allowed zero runs on three hits with four strikeouts in six innings.

He’ll be facing off against Royals left-hander Kris Bubic. Bubic’s first start of the season was in the Royals’ 4-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, in which he allowed two runs on seven hits with a walk and four strikeouts in five innings.
