Cahill, who has been the subject of much trade speculation lately, is looking for a repeat of his last start, also against the Giants. He went 6 2/3 innings, giving up only one run on eight hits and a walk, while collecting eight strikeouts.
Samardzija wasn't so successful pitching in that game. The Padres put up seven runs - all earned - on nine hits in six innings, giving Samardzija the loss. However he did refrain from walking a batter and he notched eight strikeouts as well in that outing. Overall the 2017 season has been rough on Samardzija. Sunday's loss against the Padres put him at 4-11 on the year after 19 starts. He'll try to avoid a 12th loss tonight.
