Keys to the Game: Giants Vs. Padres, September 7, 2011


The San Francisco Giants will need to practically win out their remaining 20 games if they hope to overcome Arizona’s six game divisional lead. Completing a three game sweep of the Padres would certainly help to keep their postseason contention alive. This afternoon the Giant’s Matt Cain (11-9, 2.85) will seek his first win of the season against the Padres. Cain is 0-1 with a 4.05 ERA in three starts versus San Diego. The Friars will counter with their Giant slayer, Aaron Harang (12-5, 3.86 ERA), who is 1-0 with a 0.69 ERA against San Francisco in two starts this season. Compare this afternoon’s starters.

The Giant’s late season acquisition, Carlos Beltran, is finally offensively producing as expect. Beltran has been on an extraordinary tear so far this September, batting .765,  with 6 RBIs and a colossal 2.098 OPS!  Check out Beltran’s September numbers.

Can Cain complete the sweep at Petco Park today and help to spark a repeated San Francisco September surge into the playoffs?
