BY foxsports • October 5, 2016

NEW YORK (AP) San Francisco infielder Eduardo Nunez was left off the roster for Tuesday night's NL wild-card game against the New York Mets, and the Giants opted to go with 11 pitchers.

Madison Bumgarner starts for the Giants, and manager Bruce Bochy has 10 bullpen options: right-handers Santiago Casilla, Johnny Cueto, George Kontos, Derek Law, Sergio Romo, Jeff Samardzija and Hunter Strickland, and left-handers Javier Lopez, Steven Okert and Will Smith.

Cueto and Samardzija are usually starters.

Pitchers Matt Cain and Jake Peavy weren't included on the 25-man roster.

Nunez hasn't played since Sept. 25 because of a strained right hamstring.
