The Arizona Diamondbacks hope to slow the playoff drive of the San Francisco Giants for the second straight night.
The San Francisco Giants are beginning to reach the part of the season where a losing streak of any length is deadly. The Giants have dropped three in a row after a 6-2 defeat at Chase Field where the hitting and pitching struggled. Ryan Vogelsong didn't have his best stuff with four runs scored on six hits and two WP over 5.2 innings of work. The Giants did total a not too shabby eleven hits with Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford knocking in runs. San Francisco is scheduled to send Jake Peavy to the hill for his second consecutive start versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. Peavy has been on fire with six straight starts with no more then two runs scored.

The Arizona Diamondbacks haven't done a whole lot of winning lately but they have won three in a row after upending San Francisco in the series opener to put a dent in the Giants National League West title hopes. Wade Miley was the catalyst on the mound with a run plated on seven hits through seven inning to get the victory. The Diamondbacks posted nine hits and walked four times with Mark Trumbo going deep and driving in five runs. The Diamondbacks are scheduled to start a red hot Jake Collmenter versus the San Francisco Giants. Collmenter faced the Giants a week ago with a three hit shutout over six frames in a 5-0 defeat.
Both pitchers are at the top of their game but strangely the Giants are losing and the Diamondbacks are losing. I'll back the better odds with the way these teams are going...
