SAN FRANCISCO -- Former first-round draft picks will duel on the mound for the second consecutive game Saturday night when the Baltimore Orioles and San Francisco Giants continue their interleague series. Sandro Wagner Jersey .Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman, the No. 4 overall pick of the 2012 draft, and Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner, who went 10th overall in 2007, will square off where Baltimores Dylan Bundy (fourth overall, 2011) got the better of San Franciscos Matt Cain (25th overall, 2002) in the series opener Friday.Gausman has never faced the Giants in his four-year major league career, and his early ventures into interleague play generally have not been pleasant. Hes 1-4 with a 5.22 ERA in seven starts against National League competition.Only five pitchers who have made at least seven starts have a worse interleague record over that stretch.Gausman got a no-decision in his only previous interleague start this season. He was roughed up for four runs on eight hits over five innings in a 6-4 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on July 6.The 25-year-old has allowed two or fewer runs in four of five games against American League competition since then, although he has a losing record (2-3) to show for it.He will be looking to follow in the footsteps of fellow elite prospect Bundy, who limited the struggling Giants to just three hits and one run in 5 2/3 innings in the series opener.The Giants have alternated wins and losses in their last seven games, totaling just four runs in the four losses.Good start to the series, Orioles manager Buck Showalter assessed. Gutty effort by Dylan. He battled tonight, gave us a chance to win.Bumgarner, meanwhile, will be seeking to extend his streak of consecutive interleague starts without a loss to six. Hes 1-0 in four starts against AL teams this season, having allowed more than two runs in a game just once.The last time Bumgarner lost an interleague game was more than a year ago -- July 31, 2015 at Texas.Hes never faced the Orioles in his eight-year career thats included 20 interleague starts. The only other teams Bumgarner has never pitched against are the Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.Bumgarner hasnt won since July 10, a stretch of five games in which hes allowed six home runs.The series matches the major league leader in homers (the Orioles, with 174) against the NL leader in homers allowed since the All-Star break (the Giants, with 37 in 25 games).Orioles slugger Mark Trumbo added to both those totals in the series opener Friday, taking Cain deep for his 33rd home run of the season. First baseman Chris Davis also homered, his 24th.Trumbo had a home run against Bumgarner last season as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks.Giants catcher Buster Posey noted after the loss that he knows what to expect from Bumgarner. The question is: Will the San Francisco offense do enough to support him?We have the ability to get on a good streak. Thats the way we got to look at it, he noted. We have to look and say tomorrow is the day we get it going. Serge Gnabry Jersey . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. Jerome Boateng Jersey .com) - Following a late-game loss to the reigning NBA champs, the Toronto Raptors will look to sustain their recent high-level play as they travel to Indiana to take on the Pacers. . 31, the CFL club announced Monday.

Click here.Mondays key matchesNo. 8 Dominic Thiem vs.?Juan Martin del Potro, 11 a.m. ET on Arthur Ashe Stadium (Watch) The 23-year-old Austrian is the first member of Generation Next to crack the top 10. Del Potro, back from four wrist surgeries, is the darling of the tennis world and only weeks removed from a riveting run to the Rio Olympics final. Theyve met once, earlier this year in Madrid, where del Potro won a good one, 7-6 (5), 6-3.No. 6 Venus Williams vs. No. 10 Karolina Pliskova, following Thiem-del Potro (Watch)On paper, anyway, this one looks to be a fair fight. Venus, 36, got to the final here in her first appearance in 1997 -- when Pliskova was 5 years old. Their only previous meeting: Venus won 7-5, 7-6 (6) in the 2015 final in Zhuhai, China. That suggests this could be a good one.No. 1 Serena Williamss vs. Mats Hummels Jersey. Yaroslava Shvedova, following Williams-Pliskova (Watch)History continues to beckon. Serena can become the winningest player in Grand Slams, pushing her match wins total to 308, one more than Roger Federer. She already has beaten the 28-year-old from Kazakhstan in all four of their previous matches, most recently two years ago in Miami. Serena has won four of their five sets in majors.No. 6 Kei Nishikori vs. No. 21 Ivo Karlovic, third match on Louis Armstrong Stadium (Watch)The 6-foot-11 Karlovic, from Zagreb, Croatia, is 37 years old, but he is still pumping out the aces. Through three rounds, he had 99, most among the remaining players, and nearly twice as many as the second-place Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (46). Interestingly, Karlovic has a 2-1 career edge, but Nishikori -- a finalist here two years ago -- won the last one, two years ago in Memphis in straight sets.No. 2 Andy Murray vs. No. 22 Grigor Dimitrov, 7 p.m. ET on Arthur Ashe Stadium (Watch)While Murray holds a 6-3 head-to-head edge, the last meeting, back in March in Miami, was a barnburner. Murray emerged with a 6-7 (1), 6-4, 6-3 victory. Theyve split their two Grand Slam encounters. Murray and No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic, who are seen by many as co-favorites here, could meet in the final. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys 2018Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys From China Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Hoodies Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
