The San Francisco Giants open a series with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday at AT&T Park.
The Arizona Diamondbacks open the series at San Francisco following a three game sweep at the Dodgers where the arms and bats struggled. The Snakes fell 7-2 in the finale' where starter Trevor Cahill continued to struggle although three runs allowed over 5.2 frames is a decent outing in my book. Oliver Perez gave up four runs on a pair of homers in 1/3 of an inning which is the definition of struggling. The offense received RBI's from Cody Ross and Didi Gregorius but didn't threaten often. Left hander Wade Miley draws Tueday's pitching assignment versus the San Francisco Giants. Miley has been in top form with five consecutive quality starts but the Diamondbacks are still 0-5 in this span.

The San Francisco Giants are out to string some wins together and put some pressure on the division leading Dodgers. The Giants had a chance to sweep Detroit on the road but instead dropped a 6-1 decision on Sunday which is not a big deal unless the losses mount. Veteran Tim Hudson gave up three runs through six frames but it got out of reach once the bullpen entered the fray. The dependable Giants offense didn't have much going on with ngel Pagan knocking in Gregor Blanco with the lone run. Yusmeiro Petit is looking for consistency when handed the ball for the series opening start versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. Petit lasted four innings in a 12-7 win versus Colorado with six runs allowed.
If the Diamondbacks are going to win one this could be it with Miley having successin this match up. Of course that means Arizona has to help out at the plate which a pleasant thought...
