San Francisco Giants vs Oakland Athletics Match Preview and Free Picks
The San Francisco Giants lost two of three at home last weekend in the first installment of the Bay Bridge Series but look to clinch the second matchup when they visit the Oakland Athletics on Saturday for the middle contest of their three-game interleague set. The Giants entered the All-Star break having lost two straight to Oakland but bounced back Friday with a 5-1 road victory.
Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-3 with a homer and Ryder Jones went deep in his season debut for San Francisco, which entered the series with a major league-low six home runs since July 1. Oakland managed only four hits - three doubles - in the opener as it lost for just the third time in 10 contests.
Mark Canha drove in the team's lone run on Friday with a sacrifice fly, giving him five RBIs in his last five games. Stephen Piscotty enters Saturday with a 10-game hitting streak after notching one of the Athletics' doubles in the opener.

San Francisco Giants vs Oakland Athletics Starting Pitchers Report
Giants LH Madison Bumgarner (3-3, 2.90 ERA): Bumgarner hopes to duplicate his last outing, a home victory over Oakland on July 13 in which he allowed one run and three hits over six innings. With the triumph, the 28-year-old native of North Carolina improved to 4-2 with a 4.62 ERA in six career starts against the Athletics. Bumgarner has won three of his last four decisions but is 0-2 with a 4.67 ERA in three turns on the road this season.
Athletics RH Trevor Cahill (1-2, 3.10): Cahill's return from an Achilles injury that kept him on the disabled list for over a month was a brief one as he lasted only 3 2/3 innings at Houston on July 12, when he yielded three runs on three hits and three walks but avoided a loss. The 30-year-old Californian is winless in eight turns since tossing seven scoreless frames against the Chicago White Sox in his season debut but has allowed three earned runs or fewer in seven of those outings. Cahill owns a 7-5 record and 3.97 ERA in 18 career appearances (15 starts) versus San Francisco.
