The Padres gave their home crowd quite the show in their home opener yesterday, defeating the Giants 7-6 to open up the series. Today they'll try to clinch it as Jhoulys Chacin tries to rebound from his rough season debut earlier this week.
Chacin, the Padres' Opening Day starter, struggled against the Dodgers. He only lasted 3 1/3 innings and gave up a career-high nine runs. In 15 career appearances (14 starts) against the Giants, he's 56 with a 3.47 ERA and 1.167 WHIP.
On the hill for San Francisco will be Madison Bumgarner. The Giants ace is 10-7 all-time against the Padres. In 28 games (27 starts) he's posted a 3.41 ERA and 1.080 WHIP. He didn't get the decision in his last start, his season opener against the Diamondbacks. He threw seven innings, allowing three earned runs on six hits, but he didn't walk a batter and he struck out 11.
