The San Francisco Giants recalled right-hander Brad Hennessey from Triple-A Fresno following their 7-6 win in Pittsburgh on Saturday night so he can start Sunday.
Right-hander Scott Munter, the only one of the eight Giants relievers not used Saturday, was optioned to Fresno.
Hennessey, a former Youngstown State pitcher, was 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA in four starts at Fresno. He was 2-2 with a 4.98 ERA in seven games with San Francisco last season.
Right-hander Jason Schmidt normally would have pitched on four days' rest Sunday, but his start was pushed back to Monday at Arizona because he threw 131 pitches in his last start Tuesday.
