The San Francisco Giants haven’t won a game in September. Will that change on Friday night?
Entering play on September 8th, San Francisco (70-70) has lost six straight games (seven of their past eight) while nose-diving out of a National League Wild Card spot.
During their ongoing losing streak, the Giants have scored a measly 2.3 runs per game, which comes in twice below the 2023 MLB average of 4.6 runs per contest.
Although San Francisco’s offensive woes have dug them into a 2.5-game hole in the NL Wild Card standings, the Giants will play seven of their next ten games against the Colorado Rockies–a team that currently holds Major League Baseball’s worst ERA at 5.63 on the season.

San Francisco’s six-game skid has pushed them out of a Wild Card spot as they enter the weekend 2.5 games behind the Miami Marlins.
The Giants are the only team in Major League Baseball that has not picked up a win in September, and they will look to put a tally in the win column on Friday night when left-handed rookie Kyle Harrison takes the mound at Oracle Park.
Here are the probable pitching matchups as San Francisco attempts to right the ship and continue their push for October.
