Right-handed Tyler Mahle tries to defeat the San Francisco Giants for the first time in his career as he and the Cincinnati Reds aim to win the series on Sunday afternoon.
The Giants used 4 home runs and 6 almost perfect innings from Logan Webb to Saturday's 3-game series, 9-2 after the Reds beat the opening 4-2. Won.
Cincinnati claimed last month that he had won two out of three candidates from the National League West at home. This is the only defeat at the start of Mare at the Series Finale.
This 27-year-old player threw a shutout ball of 6 2/3 innings that day, allowing only one hit. He left with a 2-0 lead, but saw the Cincinnati bullpen give up six runs in the eighth inning of a 6-4 defeat.

A typical example of his tough luck these days was the effort to shut out nine innings against Arizona Diamondbacks two times ago. This game was scoreless up to 10th place. The Reds won 5-3 in 12 innings, but he didn't win.
Mare allowed the Los Angeles Dodgers an 8-2 home loss on Tuesday with six innings, the best of the season, 12 hits.
Reds manager David Bell will end the series as the winner of last year's 13 games started the series on Friday with 8 innings of 2 runballs by rookie Graham Ashcraft. He said he was expecting.

"That was the blow we've been waiting for," said Giants manager Gabe Kapler. "We talked about another really good duel in the game to make a difference, and how big innings win baseball games. They were the key to our success.
Mare will duel with an old friend when he plays against former teammate Anthony DeSclafanny (0-1, 7.71). Right-handed players have spent six seasons in the 2015-20 Reds, with the ERA at 4.19 to 35-37.
The 32-year-old will be competing in the Reds for the second time since leaving as a free agent following the 2020 season. He won 4-2 in Cincinnati's only career start with the Reds last May, limiting his host to one run in seven innings.
He was 1-0 at 1.13 ERA in two games (one start) against the Reds in his career.
DeSclafani will be off to the fifth start of his season since he was absent for just two months due to inflammation of his right ankle.
He returned to the three-inning pitch in Atlanta on Tuesday, during which time he was ravaged with five runs and six hits, eventually winning 12-10.
