Andrew McCutchen's return to Pittsburgh was awesome

San Francisco Giants vs. Pittsburgh Pirates, 5-11-2018 - Pick and Prediction

Neither Hernandez or Hanson hit a home run during their tenures with Pittsburgh. The Pirates, who scored 42 runs during their five-game winning streak that ended Sunday, were shutout by Giants' starter Derek Holland, who entered the game 1-4 with a 5.66 earned run average. Posey has four hits in five at-bats against the right-handed starter. Pittsburgh has a 3-4 ATS mark over its last seven outings and the total has gone over in four of those seven.

The best news for the Pirates was Nova's recovery after allowing 17 hits and 13 runs (10 earned) in his past two starts against the Washington Nationals and Chicago White Sox.

"If we put the last hitter, Hundley, away", manager Clint Hurdle said, "it's a good (stat) line". The San Francisco pitching features a 4.13 team ERA, positioning them 14th in the Major Leagues. "What's it going to be like?' I don't know until I'm there and until I'm in the moment", McCutchen said. The Pirates continue to thrive at the plate, and they are now averaging 4.97 runs, good for seventh in the Majors.

San Francisco fielders have 16 errors over the last 10 games, compared to four errors for Pittsburgh over its last 10. Hernandez led off with his second homer, to left, for a 1-0 Giants lead.

"He might have said, 'Hey, ' and I was just kind of star-struck", Kuhl said. "The five walks, that's the killer".

Props to the Pirates for showing appreciation for the 31-year-old.

The Giants have hit 41 home runs in 41 games this season after finishing last with 128 in 162 games last season.

Nova He blamed himself for not being able to field Pablo Sandoval's sixth-inning grounder. "It's a comebacker I should make. I paid for it". 2B Josh Harrison (broken left hand) has taken batting practice and is ready for a rehab stint. RHP Jameson Taillon (right finger laceration) is unsure whether he can make his scheduled start Wednesday.

Though the floodgates finally did open for the Giants, their lineup spent the first several innings scalding fastballs from Nova that resulted in nothing more than hard-hit outs.

Giants: RHP Chris Stratton (3-3, 4.60) is to start Monday at home against Cincinnati. But for the Giants, it was their fifth straight loss, none of which has been especially close.

Giants: Derek Holland (1-4, 5.66 ERA) will look for his first road win in almost a year on Sunday. The Pirates are 8-2 in Interleague play.
