The Athletics will offer up rookie Daniel Mengden (0-3, 3.00 ERA) to the red-hot Giants in an interleague matchup Monday that will see the – Shark , Jeff Samardzija, pitch against one of his former teams.
– Shark BITES
- The Giants are 7-1 in their last 8 games at home.
- The Giants are 12-2 in their last 14 games against teams with losing records.
- The Athletics are 2-7 in their last nine games against the National league.
Samardzija has been great since his move to the bay area, seeing his ERA drop from 4.96 in 2015 to 3.59 this year. In five starts in San Francisco this year, the – Shark is 3-1 with a 3.06 ERA. The righty has been as inconsistent lately as my ability to correctly spell his last name. He lasted just three innings in his last outing, allowing six runs. This touch-up came on the heels of a complete game win against the Rays.
Mengdon has lost all three of his first Major League games after being called up from Triple-A Nashville. He has pitched decent enough, posting two quality starts in his short tenure with the big club, but has received hardly any run support from an Oakland team that is 26th in runs scored.
