Right-hander Jeff Samardzija (2-4, 3.83 ERA), who struggled in May, takes the mound for San Francisco as he looks to return to his April form when he ended the month with a 2.53 ERA. For the season, Samardzija has allowed 51 hits, 31 runs, 10 homers, 19 walks and struck out 45 in 56 1/3 innings.
Catcher Buster Posey (.257) is 3-for-6 with a homer and two RBIs in the series, while outfielder Mike Yastrzemski (.280) has been on fire. He is 4-for-10 with a triple, home run and four RBIs over the last three games and has two multi-hit games in the past seven since being called up from the minors. Second baseman Joe Panik (.240) has four multi-hit games in the past 10 and a total of 10 for the season.
But just because San Francisco has swung the bats well in the first two games of the series with Baltimore does not mean it is the best value on the Giants vs. Orioles money line Sunday.
