Pittsburgh Pirates vs San Francisco Giants Prediction 

The first leg of this Barry Bonds-themed series was a snoozer that provided fireworks at the end, and while we could see more offense here in game two, San Francisco still comes into a good position with Jordan Hicks set to go. Hicks has resurrected in the Bay thus far with five solid starts, and he’s held teams to two runs or less each time out. If the SFG bats provide the run support, they’re in a good spot to take Saturday’s contest. Roll with San Francisco for this NL battle.
