Ian Kennedy's final outing of the season will be his second consecutive start against the Giants. On Sunday he kept them to two runs in 6 2/3 innings of work to notch his second straight win. Tonight he'll look to extend that streak to three wins in a row. The righty is 8-4 with a 2.66 ERA all-time in 19 starts against San Francisco, but his most recent at AT&T Park didn't go too well. He gave up four runs on nine hits through 6 1/3 innings back in June.

Ryan Vogelsong also started that game and ended up on the losing end after yielding four runs (two earned) in five frames. He is 0-3 in his last four starts while posting a 5.64 ERA. The Giants offense hasn't helped him lately either, ,scoring no runs of support for Vogelsong in his last three outings.

Game time is set for 7:15 PT tonight.
