Cincinnati Reds vs San Francisco Giants in Game 2 of the National League Division Series takes place Sunday night as the Reds attempt to take a tight grip on the five game series. The game is scheduled to start at 9.37 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
In Saturday night's Game 1 between these two sides the Reds claimed a 5-2 win over the Giants. They accomplished that feat despite losing starting pitcher Johnny Cueto after just eight pitches when he complained of back spasms.
The Giants enter this game knowing that they really must win to have a realistic chance of taking the series. If they lose tonight and go 2-0 down they will be on the verge of losing the entire series. The first two games are taking place in San Francisco, meaning that from game three the series will move to Cincinnati, and if the Reds can take a 2-0 lead back home they will be extremely confident of finishing the job.
The Giants will look to Madison Bumgarner to inspire them from the mound on Sunday. The 23 year old has looked superb at times this season, but has fallen apart at others. He will remember pitching a complete game shutout against the Reds just on June 28, and that should give him confidence to perform this evening. In that game he allowed just one hit, two walks, and achieved eight strike outs.
The Reds meanwhile will put Bronson Arroyo on the mound, who performed well towards the end of the regular season. He finished the season off with a 5-3 record, and with a 3.12 ERA over his final 10 games.
