Ryan Vogelsong (0-1, 8.44 ERA) seeks his first victory of the season and hopes that the Giants bats can continue to stay hot. The Giants are coming off of a series sweep of the Colorado Rockies in which they scored 23 runs and gave up just eight.
The bats have awoken just in time to visit a hitter-friendly park in Wrigley Field, as both Buster Posey and Marco Scutaro have both started to heat up with good games against the Rockies.
The Cubs will be sending right hander Scott Feldman (0-1, 7.72 ERA) to the mound. He is 0-3 with a 5.54 ERA over four appearances against the Giants, and will be looking to pick up his first win of the season and get his Cubs team rolling.
Cubs right fielder Nate Schierholtz, who was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies by San Francisco at last year’s deadline, will be facing his former team for the first time. The Bay Area native spent his first five-plus season with the Giants, and was a contributor to the 2010 and 2012 titles. Schierholtz signed with Chicago during the offseason and is hitting .304 with one home run, four RBIs, and five runs scored.
Chicago has hit just .210 while dropping seven of their last eight against San Francisco. The Giants have won eight of their last 13 games in Wrigley.
First pitch is at 11:20 am PT.
