Giants Vs. Pirates Lineups: Madison Bumgarner Looks to Bounce Back

When the Giants score, they win. At least, that's been the case over the last six games, over which San Francisco has been shut out three times, but gone 3-3. The Giants will see how many runs they can push across the plate when they open up a four-game series against the Pirates at Oracle Park on Monday night.

Madison Bumgarner (9-8, 3.81) will get the start for San Francisco, as the left-hander is in the midst of a dominant stretch. He has lost just once in his last 14 starts, but has actually had a fair bit of trouble with Pittsburgh over the course of his career, having gone just 3-5 in eight starts, albeit with a respectable 3.22 ERA.

He'll be taking on a Pirates team that has struggled in the second half, as Pittsburgh has been one of the three worst teams in all of baseball since the All-Star break. The Pirates will start Trevor Williams (7-6, 5.16) in the series opener, who has experienced some success against San Francisco in the past. The right-hander is 1-0 with a 1.42 ERA in three career starts against the Giants.

Coverage begins with Giants Pregame Live at 5:30 p.m. PT on NBC Sports Bay Area and streaming on the My Teams app.
