Pirates Visit Giants For Start of Three-Game Series Monday Night

Giants asking Bumgarner to end current slide

With four straight losses weighing heavily on their minds, the Giants will send ace Madison Bumgarner to the mound on Monday night for the first of three with the Pirates. Bumgarner enters tonight with a record of 12-7 and an ERA of 3.19. He has not fared well at all when pitching at home this year. Bumgarner is just 4-5 with an ERA of 5.22 at AT&T Park in 2014. He looks to turn his luck around on Monday night.

Worley looking to continue strong start with new club

After being designated for assignment by the Twins, and latching on with the Pirates, Vance Worley has returned to the Majors rejuvenated. He is 3-1 with an ERA of 3.10 in seven games pitched this year. He is in the rotation for Pittsburgh due to injuries to Gerrit Cole and Francisco Liriano. Pittsburgh has lost eight of their last 10 games on the road coming into tonight’s contest with the host Giants.

On Monday night we will place our bet on the Giants and the Pirates over at Bovada.lv, where the Giants are favored to win this game due to Bumgarner taking the mound. We are going to drop 20 percent of our bankroll on the Giants and the -157 money line as they snap their four-game losing streak with the Pirates in town for a three-game series.
