The San Francisco Giants look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Giants have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The San Francisco Giants offense has heated up, and they’ve won four straight games when scoring more than three runs. Brandon Belt leads San Francisco with 91 hits, Brandon Crawford has 58 RBI and Buster Posey has 11 home runs. Madison Bumgarner takes the hill, and he’s 9-4 with a 2.09 ERA and 132 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 8-7 with a 2.54 ERA and 126 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 5-2 in their last 7 Sunday games and 2-5 in Bradleys last 7 starts. The Giants are 4-0 in their last 4 Sunday games and 11-3 in Bumgarners last 14 starts. The Giants are 1-4 in Bumgarners last 5 starts vs. Diamondbacks.
I've said for a while now that the Diamondbacks are unbackable with their pitching staff getting rocked every single night. That doesn't change when the other team has Bumgarner on the mound. Giants should roll in this contest.
