Why you should back the Giants

San Francisco will send right-hander Logan Webb (1-3, 5.34 ERA) to the mound. He struggled in his last outing at Colorado, giving up six earned runs in 3 2/3 innings, but had pitched well in his previous two starts. Webb lost at San Diego on April 30, despite giving up just three earned runs on eight hits in six innings. He walked one and struck out four. In his April 25 start against Miami, Webb did not allow a run and just three hits in seven innings to earn the win. He walked three and struck out eight.

Third baseman Evan Longoria entered the series red hot, hitting in five straight games, including a 2-for-3 performance in Game 2 of a doubleheader at Colorado on May 4. In the weekend series against San Diego, Longoria was 3-for-11 with two doubles and two RBIs. In 12 home games, Longoria is hitting .333 with a home run and eight RBIs. He has had a lot of success against Texas in the past. Coming into this season, Longoria was a .295 career hitter against the Rangers with 20 doubles, two triples, 16 homers and 64 RBIs.

In his last start on Thursday, Lyles got a no-decision, going five innings against the Minnesota Twins, allowing seven hits, three earned runs and two walks, while striking out seven.
