San Francisco Giants vs Cincinnati Reds meet in the MLB Playoffs 2012 on Saturday night. Game One of the National League Division Series takes place at AT&T Park from 9.30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on TBS, or alternatively the game can be watched online through live stream (details below).
This series looks like it will be an intriguing match up, with both the Reds and Giants displaying some spectacular form through the regular season. The Reds are the number 2 seeds in the National League and the Central Division champions. Meanwhile, the Giants are the number 3 seeds and the Western Division champions.
One of the core match ups in this game that could decide the outcome is Cincinnati's Johnny Cueto against San Francisco's Matt Cain.
Cueto has a record 19-9 and 2.78 ERA, where as Cain has 16-5 and 2.79 ERA.
The sides met on June 28, where the Giants came out on top. In that game Cueto went six innings, gave up two runs, as well as four walks. That loss was the Dominican Republic native's only start against the Giants in the regular season.
Meanwhile, Cain has not had a particularly good time against the Reds, giving up eight runs in just 13 innings against the Reds, losing in both contests. However, the veteran right-hander comes into the game tonight having won his last six regular season starts.
Both teams sport two of the best hitters in the league in catcher Buster Posey and first baseman Joey Votto.
