Giants Vs. Reds Lineups: Dereck Rodriguez, Mike Gerber Get the Start

The Giants are coming off of an insane, historic comeback against the Reds Friday night by overcoming an eight-run deficit.

Stephen Vogt set the Giants up belting a game-tying home run with two outs in the ninth inning and Evan Longoria sealed the deal when he went deep at the top of the 11th to defeat Cincinnati, 12-11

This was Vogt's first game back to the bigs in years and he was overwhelmed following the victory.

"For my first game back since 2017, this is pretty special and especially finishing off that come-from-behind win," he told reporters.

Reds manager David Bell said despite losses being tough, this particular one felt worse. 

"Our guys in the bullpen have been doing such a great job, and we finally score some runs, and not to be able to hold it. It happens. It's a great test to bounce back from, but it's a tough game to lose."

The Giants have Dereck Rodriguez starting on the bump facing Tanner Roark.

Outfielder Mike Gerber was recently promoted from Triple-A and will get the start in left field after going 1-for-4 with a hit on Friday. It wasn't as great of news for Tyler Beede who made his 2019 debut with the Giants and struggled on the mound allowing seven hits against 17 batters faced in 2 1/3 innings. His ERA now sits at a staggering 27.00.
