It all comes down to Thursday, where Matt Cain will face Mat Latos at Great American Ballpark. Today was the first game of the series where the Giants showed any sort of offensive threat, putting up eight runs on 11 hits in their 8-3 Game 4 win.
The series ends in true postseason fashion, with San Francisco facing one of its least favorite pitchers. Latos has a 2-0 record and 0.56 ERA in 16 innings against the Giants this season.
This may be the lineup we’ll see from them tomorrow.
