Logan Webb will be asked to help the Giants salvage a game in the series and avoid being swept. Webb made his only other start against the A's last season and took the loss after allowing 4 runs off 6 hits in 4 2/3 innings with a pair of walks and strikeouts each. He took on the Astros earlier this week and went 3 1/3 innings with 3 strikeouts and walked 1 batter with 5 runs allowed (2 earned) off 4 hits in a losing effort.
Matt Fiers will take the ball for the A's and try to help them get the sweep. Friers is 1-1 in 4 starts on the year with 7 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings but has an ERA of 6.96 with 6 homers given up. The Nova Southeastern University alum was 15-4 in 33 starts for the A's last year with a 3.90 ERA. Fiers will face the Giants for the 5th time (4th start) and look for his first victory against them. He is 0-3 with a 3.72 ERA totaling 20 strikeouts in 19 1/3 innings while allowing just 4 walks.
First pitch is at 1:05 pm
