According to ESPN
1st 3 for the Giants.
Bumgarner vs. Lance Lynn (18W - 7L, 180K, 1.32WHIP)
No Jaime Garcia, he is no longer on the playoff roster due to an injury.
Major advantage to the Giants.
Who are their starters?
Wainwright has been absolute s**t this playoffs.
Lynn, Lohse are pretty quality but not world beaters. I think Vogey + Bumgarner match up well vs them and are probably favored to win.
Carpenter + Cain. I think you could give the edge to Carpenter in this matchup, Cain looks a little tired right now and Carpenter only has 4-5 starts up to this point this year and Carpenters history of clutchness in the playoffs... you could say the same the same about cain but he looks fatigued.
then there is the wildcard. I think will be the key to the series Rotation wise.
Tim Lincecum. I think, if he is on his A game like he was vs. the Reds. He will give us the edge in this series.
