The Giants have lost 8 straight home games and have not lost 9 straight at home since they moved to San Francisco. They have been shut out in 3 of their last 4 games and in their 4-game skid they are bating .168 as a team. They turn to Tim Hudson to help break the streak and in his last outing he gave up 4 earned runs in 5 innings, but the offense helped him out in the 8-4 win over the New York Mets. This season he is 3-4 with a 3.83 ERA in 7 home starts and the Giants are 8-2 in their last 10 home games with him on the hill facing a team that has a losing record. Taijuan Walker had a solid last outing giving up 1 earned run in 6 innings in a 9-3 win over the Cleveland Indians. He is 2-1 with a 1.64 ERA in his last 3 starts, but Seattle is only 2-6 in Walker’s last 8 starts as a road underdog.
The Giants will not snap their losing streak tonight, as Walker will have another good start and the Mariners will take the first game of this interleague series.
