The Giants may forego using a designated hitter Thursday and have Madison Bumgarner hit. He has hit two of his 13 career home runs this season.

Bumgarner is looking to avoid his first three-game slide of the season as he has lost back-to-back starts at Pittsburgh and versus Philadelphia despite allowing a total of four runs in 14 1/3 innings. He has given up more than two earned runs only three times in 16 games this year. Bumgarner has had his difficulties with Oakland over his career, surrendering 15 runs and 30 hits over 26 2/3 innings with a 5.06 ERA.

Giants vs A’s Pick

The total for this game is set a 7 runs. All I can say is thank you. The Athletics have been hot at the plate lately and Bumgardener has not had great success on shutting down Oakland in his career. I don’t see the A’s sweeping the four game series from the Giants but, I do like the over better than the side in this game.
