San Diego Padres at San Francisco Giants

  1. The Padres and Giants met last weekend at Petco Park when the Padres were able to take two of three, including a walkoff win on Saturday night. San Diego is 2-1 at AT&T Park this season, and 5-1 dating to these clubs' last series in San Francisco in 2016.
  2. San Diego fell, 18-4, to Colorado at Coors Field on Wednesday, getting swept three straight by the Rockies by a combined score of 36-17 -- its second-most runs allowed in any three-game series all-time. The game also marked the 14th time this season that the Padres have allowed 10 or more runs, second most in MLB (Cincinnati -- 15).
  3. The Giants defeated the Indians, 5-4, on Wednesday thanks to Buster Posey's pinch-hit go-ahead double in the eighth inning. They are now 37-59 on the year, the franchise's worst 96-game start since they were 36-60 in 1985.
  4. Jhoulys Chacin needed 58 pitches to get through the first two innings versus San Francisco on Saturday, but ended up allowing just three runs over 6.0 innings in a no-decision. In three starts against the Giants this season, Chacin is 2-0 with a 3.06 ERA.
  5. Madison Bumgarner matched up against Chacin last Saturday in his first start off the DL, allowing three runs on 102 pitches over 7.0 innings. Bumgarner is winless in five starts to begin the season, the second-longest season-starting streak of his career (eight starts in 2011).
  6. Hunter Pence, who did not have a plate appearance on Wednesday, went just 1-for-8 in the series against Cleveland and is now batting just .158 with no home runs in his past 10 games. In his career, Pence's .236 batting average versus the Padres is his second lowest against any NL opponent (Dodgers - .228).

SAN FRANCISCO -- Left-hander Madison Bumgarner is scheduled to make the first home start since his infamous dirt bike accident when the San Francisco Giants open a four-game series against the San Diego Padres on Thursday night.

Right-hander Jhoulys Chacin is slated to get the ball for the Padres to open a series of the bottom two teams in the National League West.

The Padres won two of three against the Giants when they met last week in San Diego.

That series included Bumgarner's return from the disabled list Saturday night following a nearly three-month absence that resulted from his off-day mishap in Colorado.

The staff ace allowed four hits in seven innings against the Padres, but two hits went for home runs that produced three runs.

Bumgarner (0-3, 3.18 ERA) left a 3-3 game that night, getting a no-decision that kept him winless in five starts this season.

He's 10-8 with a 3.38 ERA in 30 career games (29 starts) against the Padres.

The Giants' fortunes have taken a turn for the better since leaving San Diego on Sunday.

First, they won two of three from the American League Central-leading Cleveland Indians, with one victory coming in walk-off fashion and the other a product of a three-run rally in the eighth inning Wednesday.

"We haven't had a lot of special moments; you have to savor them when you have them," Giants manager Bruce Bochy gushed over Wednesday's win. "Great game today. These last two games (were) the kind of magic we used to have, so it's good we recreated that."

About an hour after the game, while many of the players were on their way home, announced that one of the Giants' fan favorites, third baseman Pablo Sandoval, had agreed to a minor league deal with the club after being released by the Boston Red Sox.

Sandoval reportedly will play at Triple-A Sacramento.

The Giants could use a boost from Bumgarner in another area. Following a 530-game sellout streak that was the longest in National League history, San Francisco sold out only one of their three games in the Cleveland series.

The Padres flew into San Francisco on Wednesday night after hitting rock bottom in a three-game flame-out in Colorado. An 18-4 drubbing on Wednesday completed a blowout series in which the Padres were outscored 36-17.

"You learn what you can from these moments," San Diego manager Andy Green said. "We flush these games. We move on and we show up ready to win a baseball game (Thursday)."

Chacin opposed Bumgarner in San Diego and experienced the same result as his counterpart. He also received a no-decision after allowing three runs.

The 29-year-old has gone 3-2 in his last six road starts, a stretch that began with a 12-4 win at San Francisco in April.

Chacin (8-7, 4.33) is 7-6 with a 3.40 ERA in 18 games (17 starts) against the Giants.
