9/4 Game Thread Giants @ Cubs
After losing three straight games to the San Diego Padres, the San Francisco Goliaths made a beeline for the region famed for its wind, franks, and top culinary program. There, they faced up against the Chicago Fledglings for a straightforward three-game series. This one is quite big. All in all, there are only 25 games left on the schedule.
The Goliaths will use right-handed professional Logan Webb. Webb is 9-11 in 28 starts this season with a 3.49 Time, 3.27 FIP, 169 strikeouts to 27 walks in 180.1 innings. He leads the Public Association in both walks per nine innings (1.3) and strikeouts per walk (6.26). In his most recent outing against the Cincinnati Reds, he allowed two runs over six innings.
Justin Steele, a lefty, is having a breakthrough season for the Offspring in this third season. With 25 starts this year, Steele has a record of 15-3, a time of 2.69, an FIP of 3.08, and 141 strikeouts to 31 walks in 144 innings. Steele, a Top Pick without precedent for July, leads the Majors in win rate (.833) and ERA+ (168) and leads the Public Association with 0.7 grand slams per nine innings allowed. His most recent outing was a six-inning shutout against the Milwaukee Brewers.
