Pillar again in spotlight as Giants visit Jays

According to STATS
According to STATS

San Francisco Giants at Toronto Blue Jays

  1. Jeff Samardzija threw a complete-game shutout in his last start against the Blue Jays (in July 2015), and he has allowed one earned run in 23.0 career innings against the franchise (0.39 ERA). Trent Thornton will be making his first career interleague start.
  2. Toronto has reeled off six wins in its last seven games, more wins than the team managed in its first 16 games (five wins). The Jays have 15 and 13 hits in their last two games, respectively, their two highest totals of 2019.
  3. San Francisco is scoring 2.91 runs per game this season, 29th in MLB (Marlins, 2.73). The Giants beat Pittsburgh, 3-2, last time out -- they've gone 4-2 in one-run games, and 5-12 in all other games.
  4. Buster Posey doubled and also hit his first home run of the season on Sunday. He had two multi-hit games in the series against Pittsburgh, the same number of multi-hit games he had in his first 17 games of the season.
  5. Justin Smoak had his third career four-hit game on Sunday, with the others coming in April 2018 and April 2012. His nine-game hitting streak is tied for the second-longest active streak in the American League, behind only J.D. Martinez (11).
  6. Toronto went 13-7 in interleague play last season, tied for third best in MLB since 2018, despite their 5.01 team ERA in interleague games ranking 24th in MLB over that span.
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 4/23/2019 thru 4/24/2019

San Francisco will visit Toronto on Wednesday in a game that will have a decidedly Boston flavor about it.

When the Giants and Blue Jays close out their brief two-game interleague series Wednesday afternoon, San Francisco will have left-hander Drew Pomeranz (0-2, 4.82 ERA) on the mound against Toronto right-hander Clay Buchholz (0-0, 3.38).

The pitchers have 12 1/2 years of experience with the Red Sox between them, but played together at Fenway Park for just a half season, in 2016, after Pomeranz was traded from the San Diego Padres.

Both pitchers continue to search for their first victory with their new teams. Pomeranz has not gone more than five innings in any of his four starts, but the Giants still have won two of those games.

Buchholz has not given up more than three earned runs in either of his starts this season. He started the season on the injured list as he continued to recover from a flexor tendon injury in his right elbow, his third flexor tendon injury since 2015.

Pomeranz has 10 career appearances (eight starts) against the Blue Jays, going 3-2 with a 4.26 ERA. He failed to complete five innings in either of his starts against Toronto last season.

The veteran is coming off at outing at Washington when he gave up four runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings and the Giants lost 4-2 to the Nationals. He did strike out seven batters, but he walked three and now has eight walks over just 18 2/3 innings.

"I've been feeling really good and the biggest part for me is trying to manage that," Pomeranz told reporters after his last outing. "I feel like I get on a roll and roll through hitters and a couple of times a game I get jammed up and end up throwing a lot of pitches."

Buchholz might be making his third start of the season, but it's just his 21st over the last three seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies, Arizona Diamondbacks and now the Blue Jays. He made six minor league starts last year, but signed a major league deal with Toronto this season.

"That was pretty tough for me," Buchholz said about going to the minor leagues, according to The Athletic. "But I ended up doing it, and I'm grateful that I did it now because I learned from it and it got me back to the big leagues."

Buchholz has faced the Giants just four times in his career, going 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA over 20 innings.

Yet all eyes figure to be on Giants outfielder Kevin Pillar, who was traded from Toronto to the San Francisco on April 2 after six seasons in Canada.

Known for his highlight plays on defense, Pillar received a warm reception from Blue Jays fans on Tuesday and the team honored him with a video tribute in the middle of the first inning.

Pillar had just one hit in four at-bats Tuesday, with his run-scoring single coming in his first at-bat as a visitor in Toronto.

Blue Jays infielder Freddy Galvis, who has a tight left hamstring, was able to extend his consecutive games-played streak to 349 with a pinch-hit appearance in the ninth inning. He struck out.
