The Giants begin a six-game road trip of Friday against the San Diego Padres.
The Giants took two of three from the Arizona Diamondbacks in the final homestand before the playoffs in their last series, but now conclude with a visit with the Padres and then the Dodgers to finish out the season. But with the NL West already locked up, the Giants can afford to give some players some off days, especially their pitching.
Edinson Volquez (11-11, 4.13) will take the bump for San Diego on Sunday, though the Giants are yet to namer a starter. First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. PT with coverage on CSN Bay Area and KNBR 680 AM.
