FOUR OR FEWER: San Francisco has both scored and
allowed four runs or fewer in seven straight games, one shy
of the longest such streak in club history…prior to 1958, the New York Giants had
two such streaks of eight games, but none longer than eight (Stats, LLC).

WITH THE BATS: San Francisco has hit .204 over their first nine games…however,
14 of the team’s 59 hits have been home runs…SF’s 23.7% of hits being homers is the
third-highest figure in the Majors…the only teams with a higher percentage of their
hits that are home runs are the Indians (24.6%) and Cubs (24.4%) (Stats, LLC).

AT ORACLE PARK: Dating back to last season, the Giants have won 13 of their last
18 games on the Shores of McCovey Cove…SF has won six of its last nine games
against the Reds at Oracle Park.

FEW MISCUES: The Giants have committed just two errors over their first eight
games, tied for the second-fewest errors in the Majors…last season San Francisco
committed 11 errors over their first seven contests.

BELTED: IF Brandon Belt has posted an impressive 1.031 OPS in 49 career games
against the Reds, which is the fourth-highest figure vs. the Reds among active
players with at least 150 plate appearances vs. Cincy behind Corey Dickerson
(1.128), Ian Happ (1.053) and Albert Pujols (1.045). (Stats, LLC)

FROM THE START: Giants’ starting pitchers have tossed
5.0-or-more innings and allowed three-or-fewer runs in
each of SF’s first nine games…only twice in the modern era
have the Giants had a longer streak to begin a season (2002
& 1937)…the rotation has posted a 2.32 ERA, the third best
figure in the Majors behind Miami (2.01) and Milwaukee
(2.05).
