Andrew Cashner (4-7, 2.20 ERA) looks for an encore from his 2-hit shutout when he faces Yusmeiro Petit (5-4, 3.64 ERA). Cashner had not allowed more than 2 runs in 6 straight starts. With all his injuries, he is yet to pitch against the Giants this year. He is 1-3 with a 3.97 ERA in his career against the Giants. Petit has pitched well in his last 2 starts, allowing 4 runs in 16 innings including a complete game against the Diamondbacks. He has appeared in relief against the Friars a few times this year but his last start against them was in April when he threw 6 shutout innings in the win.

Another bat that has been key to the Giants success is that of Hunter Pence. He has 19 home runs, 72 RBI, a .290 average and 29 doubles. He has a .239 career average against San Diego with 8 home runs.
