Anthony DeSclafani took a no-decision on Monday when he allowed just one run on four hits with three walks and four strikeouts over five innings in the Giants 3-2 win over the Padres.
DeSclafani was making his Giants' debut and he did enough to give San Francisco a chance to beat the Friars. It was an inefficient start as he needed 86 pitches, only 47 strikes, just to get through five frames but he held the high-powered San Diego offense to just one run. He punched out four but did issue three walks. The 30-year-old righty doesn't have a very high ceiling but he should be a decent back-end starter for the Giants this season. He gets the Rockies at home in his next turn.
