Playoff Prospectus: NLDS Game Two Preview: Reds at Giants

2

Daniel Rathman

Can the Giants strike back at home behind Madison Bumgarner in the second game of their series?

A wild series opener, in which the Reds used two middle-inning homers and some eighth-inning insurance to overcome the loss of starting pitcher Johnny Cueto, portends more excitement in Game Two. Here are the PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for tonight’s contest:

The A's get the save of the year, while the Angels win a made-up mascot contest. Clearly, the A's won the day.

Two of the best young lefties in the game faced off earlier this week. Doug breaks down the matchup.

Clayton Kershaw dominated the rival Giants last season, going 5-0 with a 1.07 ERA and a 49:8 strikeout-to-walk ratio in six starts and 42 innings, including a perfect four-for-four in head-to-head battles with San Francisco ace Tim Lincecum. Kershaw has held the Giants to a sub-2.00 ERA again in 2012, though he had come up on the short end of the decision in two of his three starts against them to Monday's match-up with Madison Bumgarner. It was the first meeting for two young southpaws who will likely be dueling out west for years to come.

The numbers for the two pitchers are remarkably similar this season (see table), with Kershaw continuing to make his own case against DIPS theory by leading the NL in hit rate for the third time in four seasons, playing in front of a Dodger defense that ranks eighth in the majors in Defensive Efficiency. The L.A. ace has maintained a sub-.280 BABIP in each of the last three seasons, and his current mark of .268 would qualify as a career-best. Bumgarner entered the season with a career BABIP over .300, but his 2012 mark is even lower than Kershaw's in spite of the ninth-ranked gloves of the Giants.

The Giants have stopped allowing runs.

The Thursday Takeaway
Sixteen days ago, Matt Cain found his way into the Giants’ record books by throwing the first perfect game in team history. Now, his four rotation colleagues—Barry Zito, Ryan Vogelsong, Tim Lincecum, and Madison Bumgarner—have joined him by spearheading the team’s first-ever of run four consecutive shutouts.

The Giants’ 5-0 victory over the Reds last night marked their seventh win in 10 games, and it came on the heels of a three-game blanking of the rival Dodgers that left the teams tied atop the division. Combined with the Dodgers’ 3-2 loss to the Mets on Thursday, it put San Francisco alone atop the NL West for the first time this season.

The Giants have a lot of misplaced faith in the depth of their starting rotation.

Barry Zito is going through deliveries like frat houses go through 30-racks of beer. The latest version is supposed to add drop and drive to his delivery, giving him more momentum toward the plate, and perhaps putting some extra gas on his mediocre fastball.

Unfortunately for the Giants, their $126 million man is not an old dog up to new tricks. Zito has been using this trick—claiming he has altered his mechanics—for five years, giving fans futile hope that he might finally reinvent himself. It has not worked to date, and it probably will not work in 2012.

Rookie Madison Bumgarner pitches the Giants to the brink of a world championship.

ARLINGTONMadison Bumgarner has just turned in the kind of performance that very few pitchers who have ever put on a major-league uniform have matched. Yet at game's end, it was hard to tell he had even been the winning pitcher.
