KEY GAME INFORMATION
SAN FRANCISCO: 2017 64-98, fifth place
MANAGER Bruce Bochy (12th season)
ADDITIONS: 3B Evan Longoria, OF Andrew McCutchen, OF Austin Jackson, LHP Tony Watson, OF Steven Duggar, OF Gregor Blanco, LHP Derek Holland
SUBTRACTIONS: OF Denard Span, LHP Matt Moore, RHP Matt Cain, SS Christian Arroyo, OF Michael Morse
OUTLOOK: The Giants are coming off their first last-place finish in a decade and their worst season overall since 1985. The talent level was upgraded significantly with trades for Longoria and McCutchen. Those two former All-Stars might be on the downside of their careers -- both are in their 30s -- but they still should add some pop to a lineup that finished last in the majors in home runs, 29th in runs and 29th in on-base percentage. They should also improve a defense that was spotty at best last season, when nothing went right. Getting a healthy season out of Bumgarner is crucial after he was injured in a dirt bike accident last April, but Friday he was hit by a line drive on his pitching hand and will miss the first two months of the season. Cueto is a quality No. 2 starter if he can avoid the blisters that plagued him last year. Samardzija is very durable, but the rest of the rotation isn't nearly as strong. The Giants will also need to adjust to a new coaching staff, with Curt Young replacing longtime pitching coach Dave Righetti, and Alonzo Powell taking over as hitting coach after Hensley Meulens moved to bench coach.
CHICAGO CUBS: 017 92-70, first place, lost to Dodgers in NLCS
MANAGER Joe Maddon (fourth season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Yu Darvish, RHP Brandon Morrow, RHP Tyler Chatwood, RHP Steve Cishek, LHP Drew Smyly, C Chris Gimenez
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Wade Davis, C Alex Avila, C Rene Rivera, RHP Jake Arrieta, RHP John Lackey
OUTLOOK: World Series or bust. The acquisition of Darvish, who finalized a $126 million, six-year contract in February, gives Chicago a strong rotation, and the lineup is young, deep and dangerous. A franchise-record six players (Rizzo, Schwarber, Bryant, Happ, Baez and Contreras) belted at least 20 home runs last year, including a major league-record five in an age 25 or younger season. Chicago also scored more than 800 runs in consecutive seasons for the first time since the team surpassed that mark for three consecutive years from 1929-1931. The Cubs have made it to the NL Championship Series for three consecutive seasons, winning it all in 2016 to end a 108-year drought, and there's no reason to think they won't be in the mix for another title this year.
PREVIEW
Cubs, Quintana try to keep Giants down
 

CHICAGO -- For all of the constant chatter surrounding what the Chicago Cubs may need to add to contend for their second World Series championship three years, Theo Epstein offered a simple response Friday.

Nothing really.

Epstein, the team's president of baseball operations, told reporters Friday that the Cubs are essentially not involved in any discussions regarding possible trades after speculation surfaced that they could be chasing Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado.

"We have more than enough ability to win the division, to win the World Series," Epstein told reporters before the Cubs' 6-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants. "We really need to focus on our roster and get the most out of our ability and find consistency."

Getting things to even out when it comes to the Cubs' on-the-field product this season has remained a struggle. The Cubs are among the best in the majors in run differential but have had issues with pushing runs across the plate after hits create scoring opportunities.

Situational hitting with runners in scoring position remains a priority for Epstein -- who said Friday that the Cubs haven't "gotten the bang for our buck" -- and for manager Joe Maddon, who told reporters Friday that at times his hitters have been guilty of pressing too much.

"Everybody wants to score three or four or two," Maddon said, according to the team's official website. "Just score one."

Ben Zobrist delivered a bases-loaded double in the seventh inning when the Cubs snapped a 1-1 tie en route to taking the series opener 6-2. Kris Bryant delivered a two-out, two-run single later in the inning to make it 5-1.

After Kyle Hendricks allowed two hits in seven innings for the Cubs on Friday, Jose Quintana will start the second game of the series on Saturday at Wrigley Field. Quintana (5-3, 4.47 ERA) was dominant in his last outing against the Cincinnati Reds when he allowed one hit and four walks in seven innings and struck out seven.

Quintana is in search of his first career win against the Giants after dropping both his previous two starts against San Francisco.

The Giants, who have lost three straight games, continue to struggle on the road, where they dropped to 10-17 this season. San Francisco has lost all three games of its current road trip and have been outscored 21-5.

One bright spot for the Giants was the return of left fielder Mac Williamson, who missed a month with a concussion. Williamson threw out a runner at the plate Friday and finished 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

Williamson was fresh off a successful rehabilitation stint with Triple-A Sacramento and told reporters Friday that he was hoping to get back to where he was before the concussion. In his first comments since the injury, Williamson characterized some days of his recovery as miserable.

"I never had one before," Williamson said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "I didn't really know what I was feeling or wasn't feeling. Some days I was feeling really good, and then I took the exertion test and felt awful after that. ... It was just miserable."

Chris Stratton will start for the Giants on Saturday. Stratton (5-3, 4.92) has collected victories in each of his past two starts despite allowing eight runs (seven earned) in those outings. Stratton will make his first career start against the Cubs.
