The pitching matchup for the series opener will be right hander Bronson Arroyo for the Reds as he will oppose veteran right hander Tim Lincecum for the San Francisco Giants. Both pitchers enter play with good lines. Arroyo has given up no more than two earned runs in six of his past eight starts. He has had plenty of rest between starts as he worked on July 12th on the road to Atlanta and gave up just one earned run and three hits in seven innings. Tim Lincecum for all his detractors still had given up more than four earned runs just once in his past eight starts. His WHIP is only 1.14 in 59 innings of work at his home park. The San Francisco home field greatly aids pitchers with its close proximity to the ocean which creates heavy air and the balls do not carry especially at night. Neither starter over their past three games has allowed many base runners. Arroyo has a WHIP of 0.68 and Lincecum just 0.89 over their past three outings. Low WHIP numbers usually equates to fewer big innings given up by pitchers.
