Per Hank Schulman on Twitter:

Hacker joins the Giants on a four game winning streak, earning a 4-0 record and 2.19 ERA in his time this season with Triple-A Fresno, slipping right into the Giant rotation on his scheduled day to throw, keeping San Francisco from having to use Tim Lincecum on short rest or a reliever out of the bullpen as a starter.

First pitch is set for 7:15 p.m. PT this evening with coverage on CSN Bay Area and KNBR 680 AM.
