The San Francisco Giants have been chasing the Dodgers for supremacy in the National League West and have been doing their part with wins in seven of ten after knocking off Cincinnati 5-3 Wednesday. Starter Jake Peavy improved to 7-6 with a pair of runs plated on seven hits through six innings with five relievers finishing the job. The offense came through with 12 hits and four walks with Peavy going solo while Ehire Adrianza went 2-4 and knocked in two runs. Ace Madison Bumgarner is slated to be on the mound with the Diamondbacks in town Friday. Bumgarner was at his best in an 8-0 win versus San Diego last time out with a complete game one hitter.
The over is 8-1-1 in San Francisco’s last 10 Friday games while the Giants are 21-6 in their last 27 home games while going 30-12 in Bumgarner’s last 42 starts. San Francisco are 7-2 in Bumgarner’s last 9 starts versus Arizona. It’s tough to go against Bumgarner and a hot Giants squad right now…
