Giants ponder a pitching change

The Giants used five relievers in Houston Thursday night and need Jonathan Sanchez to go deep into the game tonight.

If not, they’ll consider using Saturday’s scheduled starter, Joe Martinez, out of the bullpen.

As a result, Triple A lefthander Madison Bumgarner was scratched from his start tonight in case he is needed Saturday. He is 7-1 with a 3.16 ERA for Fresno and last season allowed two runs over 10 innings for the Giants, striking out 10.
