Tuesday's Starting Pitcher Matchup

PITCHING MATCHUP: Giants RH Jeff Samardzija (2-3, 3.27 ERA) vs. Marlins RH Trevor Richards (1-5, 4.14)

Samardzija lost his second straight start after allowing six runs (none earned) on four hits in six innings of a 9-2 setback to Atlanta on Wednesday. The 34-year-old was taken deep on two occasions by the Braves and has surrendered seven homers in his last four games. Samardzija owns a 5-2 mark with a 3.62 ERA in 18 career appearances (nine starts) against the Marlins, with Walker (6-for-34, 10 strikeouts) and Martin Prado (2-for-23, five strikeouts) struggling mightily versus him.

The Giants are 3-13 in Samardzija’s last 16 starts vs. National League East and 2-9 in his last 11 starts when their opponent allows 2 runs or less in their previous game.

Richards answered his first win of the season with a strong showing on Thursday, yielding one run in 5 2/3 innings before exiting with a no-decision at Detroit. The 26-year-old kept the ball in the park and issued just one walk versus the Tigers after surrendering two homers in four of the previous five outings and granting multiple free passes in each of his other nine starts this season. Richards recorded the win in his lone career start against San Francisco, allowing one run on two hits in six innings of a 3-1 victory on June 12, 2018.

The Marlins are 2-9 in Richards' last 11 starts and 1-5 in Richards' last 6 home starts.
