The San Francisco Giants will look to bounce back on Wednesday after losing 5-4 to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The four-game series is split.
The Giants scored four runs in the first inning and dropped doughnuts for the rest of the game. Matt Cain allowed seven hits in five innings, but gave up only two earned runs. Tim Hudson will make his Giants debut on Wednesday, a veteran pitcher who has a 3.44 career ERA and 205 overall victories. Hudson has dominated the Diamondbacks over his career, as he holds a 7-1 record in 11 starts against Arizona and a 2.18 ERA.

Wade Miley bounced back after allowing four earned runs in the first inning and was able to give the Diamondbacks seven innings overall. The Arizona lineup produced 11 hits and scored two runs in the sixth inning to seal the game. Trevor Cahill will get the start in game 3, and he hopes it’s better than his last start earlier this season. Cahill pitched against the Dodgers and lasted only four innings and allowed five earned runs. However, Cahill is 5-3 in his career against the Giants and has a decent 3.67 ERA in 11 starts against San Fran.
The Giants are 7-3 in their last 10 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 games as an underdog. The Diamondbacks are 7-1 in their last 8 during game 3 of a series and 5-0 in Cahills last 5 starts as a favorite. The Giants are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Arizona.
Although the right side may be to go with the Giants due to Hudson’s great success against the Diamondbacks, I’m going to go with the under in this matchup. Neither offense has been all that hot out of the gate and the under is is 9-2-1 in the last 12 meetings between these two teams.
Expect another low scoring affair.
