Giants look to get back on track vs. Reds

The San Francisco Giants received much more than they could have expected from an emergency starting pitcher who'd thrown 20 pitches as a reliever in a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers only two nights before.

What Casey Kelly's first major league start in nearly 2 1/2 seasons didn't gain them was a victory, as Phillip Ervin's homer in the 11th inning Friday gave the Cincinnati Reds a 2-1 victory against the Giants at Great American Ball Park.

This is exactly what the Giants didn't need as they dig into the most crucial part of their schedule. It means they badly need another strong start from left-handed ace Madison Bumgarner (4-4) as he opposes Reds right-hander Matt Harvey (5-7) in the second game of the three-game series Saturday.
