On Monday July 17th in the 2023 MLB season, San Francisco Giants and Cincinnati Reds meet in an important matchup as both compete for a playoff spot in the National League. The Giants come into this matchup after dominating the Pittsburgh Pirates with a three-game sweep that’s helped their momentum, with Logan Webb emerging as an outstanding starting pitcher who could potentially slow down the Reds team which has recently experienced some struggles.
Although they’ve recently struggled, the Reds remain in contention for a wild card spot and could make the playoffs by winning this and two more against Giants over the next week. Key for them will be finding ways to protect Joey Votto; if Votto remains healthy then their chances will improve dramatically in this playoff race.
Brandon Williamson will start in this game. Williamson previously faced the Nationals on July 6 and pitched 3 shutout innings, earning a no-decision in a game the Reds triumphed. The rookie made improvements in his previous 2 appearances, but his statistics are still not good. In 46.2 innings pitched, he is sporting a 5.21 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a 1-2 record.
Giants players have been enjoying success recently and they currently sit just 1.5 games behind first place in their division. LaMonte Wade Jr has led them with a .279 batting average with nine homers and 28 RBI this year; Michael Conforto has also contributed significantly leading the team in home runs with 13 and in RBIs with 49.
On Monday evening, Logan Webb will be the Giants’ pitcher. A full game shutout over the Rockies was recorded by Webb the previous time out, earning him the victory. The veteran pitcher, who had a rough month of June, has only allowed 2 runs in 15.2 innings in July and currently boasts a 3.14 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and an 8-7 record in 126 innings worked.
