In game three yesterday the Giants were able to stave off elimination by winning in extra innings. Their offense was still less than impressive only amassing three hits and scoring only two runs. The story of the game for the Giants was their bullpen who pitched strong in relief of starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong. With their season on the line once again the Giants will give the ball to Barry Zito for game four. Zito won his last five starts to close out the regular season, earning a spot on the postseason staff. In 184 innings of work this season Zito is pitching to a 4.15 ERA.
The loss in game three for the Reds was tough to swallow especially considering that their starting pitcher gave up just one hit over seven innings of work and struck out 10 batters. The Reds offense only had four hits and scored just one run in the 2-1 loss in game three. The Reds will counter Barry Zito with Mat Latos. Latos will be making the start after filling in an emergency situation for Johnny Cueto when he went out injured in game one. Latos had an impressive regular-season pitching to a 3.48 ERA in 209 innings of work.
All signs point to Latos as the starting pitcher so we will be on Cincinnati today so read an online sportsbook reviews.
