After the San Francisco Giants earned a hard fought series win against the Washington Nationals Wednesday at AT&T, the last series of their current homestand is on deck against the ever dangerous Cincinnati Reds begining Thursday. The Reds are NL Central champions in 2010, sporting the reigning NL MVP at first base, and have a great rotation to boot. Cincy is always a difficult team to beat, but the Giants seem to thrive on playing dominant teams, and they usually can bolster some success from it.
The Reds came to AT&T last year for a three game series as the Giants proceeded to outscore them 38-19 over the series, averaging a whoping 12.6 runs per game behind 17.6 hits per game. If the Giants can show any semblance of the offense the Reds faced at AT&T last season, I think they'll be in good shape.
After this series the Giants will have their first off day in almost a month on Monday before heading to Arizona for a three game set.
