The San Francisco Giants look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Giants have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Giants have won eight of their last nine when scoring more than three runs. Buster Posey leads San Fran with 166 hits and 90 RBI while Matt Duffy and Brandon Belt have combined for 139 RBI. The San Francisco Giants have won five of their last seven home games. Mike Leake takes the hill, and he’s 10-8 with a 3.72 ERA and 115 strikeouts this season. Leake is 4-1 with a 5.36 ERA and 33 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 5-2 in Corbins last 7 starts. The Giants are 30-12 in their last 42 during game 2 of a series and 1-8 in their last 9 games vs. a left-handed starter. The under is 4-1 in Corbins last 5 starts vs. Giants.
The Giants are on a roll again, especially at home. Leake has also allowed three or less runs in four of his six starts with the Giants. I like San Fran to remain hot at home.
