Andrew McCutchen makes emotional return to Pittsburgh

Draft Easy MLB Optimal Lineups- May 11

The Giants have lost 2.1 units and are 10-9 ATS when facing a right-handed starting pitcher this year. The Giants won five of six games against the Pirates last season.

San Francisco sends rookie Andrew Suarez to the bump for his 4th start of 2018 versus Pittsburgh. Suarez was stellar in his previous start, limiting the Braves to one run in five innings, leading to his first win of the season.

Pirates: Chad Kuhl (4-2, 4.12) is 3-1 in his last four starts and tied a career high with eight strikeouts in a victory over Milwaukee last Sunday. Suarez has been filling in due to injuries to Cueto and Bumgarner, and he could stay in the rotation for the foreseeable future if he continues to excel. Neither Hernandez or Hanson hit a home run during their tenures with Pittsburgh.

The Pirates' hitting philosophy is to hunt pitches up in the zone.

Jameson Taillon will take the mound for the eighth time of the campaign, targeting his first win since April 8th.

In the fourth inning, a double down the right field line by Belt offered the Giants a pair of chances to score the game's first run, but an 85 mile per hour groundout off of Evan Longoria's bat failed to move Belt over to third base. Its starters have an ERA of 4.21, a WHIP of 1.25 and a strikeouts-per-nine of 7.2. Today features Andrew McCutchen 's return to Pittsburgh, where he spent his entire career prior to this season. Joe Panik and Buster Posey both have three RBI's against Taillon. All the young guns in the clubhouse, they laid the foundation for how we play the game, us being scrappy players. The 28-year old left fielder has been one of the most consistent hitters in the Pirates lineup this season, now featuring a.323 average with five home runs and 26 RBI's.

McCutchen got off to one of his typical slow starts - he's hitting.250 (40 points below his career average) with a.757 on-base-plus slugging percentage, three homers and 14 RBIs - but has heated up lately. "Last couple days, they've been a lot better". The team has hit.277/.357/.497 over its last five contests and is 4-1 SU during that span.

5-0 in their last 5 home games. In the bottom of the third inning, Jose Osuna slugged a one-out double off the left field wall that almost left the yard, but Holland followed it up by inducing a groundball to Crawford at shortstop who promptly threw an eager Osuna out while he was trying to take third base. "Part of me needs to be positive in this game but we'll keep that to myself and it is what it is". The Giants will look to get their road trip back on track in another three game set.

The Pirates have been effective against left-handers, and the Taillon has not been sharp at home this season.

The Giants went 2 for 16 with runners in scoring position and struck out 14 times.
