They are 0-5 on the road against the American League this year and the Giants have won 13 of their last 17 games versus the AL Central. Madison Bumgarner threw a season-high 123 pitches in the loss to drop his record to 13-9 on the year. It was the second-highest of his career and the Giants are 14-11 in his starts this season.

The Giants committed three errors on the night and are tied for fifth in the Majors with 76 on the year. Prior to Friday's game, the Giants placed Brandon Belt on the 7-Day Concussion DL and recalled Matt Duffy from Double-A Richmond. This is Belt's second stint on the concussion DL after missing 12 games from his first stint.

After finishing this series in Kansas City, the Giants will have Monday off before beginning a five-game homestand Tuesday night.
