Jon Gray has avoided the big inning this year. He has not allowed more than two runs in an inning, but it has still been a struggle. And the Giants have not been kind to him. He is 0-2 with an 8.38 ERA in his last five starts against San Francisco, averaging less than four innings a start.

Samardzija does not have a decision in his two starts this year. He is 1-3 in his last five starts against the Rockies.
