The San Francisco Giants look for a win after winning six of their last 10 games. The Giants have scored five runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Giants have won five of their last six when scoring more than three runs. Buster Posey leads San Fran with 167 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 eight home games. Tim Hudson takes the hill, and he’s 7-8 with a 4.42 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. Hudson is 10-2 with a 2.31 ERA and 81 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 3-8 in their last 11 during game 3 of a series and 2-5 in Hellicksons last 7 road starts. The Giants are 5-1 in their last 6 games vs. a right-handed starter and 1-4 in Hudsons last 5 Sunday starts. The Diamondbacks are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in San Francisco.
Hudson has allowed a combined two runs in his last four outings. I like the Giants to advoid the sweep on their home field.
