The Arizona Diamondbacks simply had no answers for the Giants on Friday as they lost in San Francisco. Paul Goldschmidt, Mark Trumbo, and Miguel Montero had hits as the Diamondbacks didn’t score on their five hits. Starting pitcher Michael Bolsinger allowed eight hits and five runs while striking out five over 5.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 1-6 for the season. For Saturday’s game Arizona starts Wade Miley who won last time out ending a string of five no decisions. For the season Miley has allowed 115 hits and 59 earned runs while striking out 114 over 120 innings for a 4-6 record and a 4.42 ERA.
San Francisco is 9-21 in their last 30 games, 1-4 in game two of a series, and 1-5 in Vogelsong’s last six starts. Arizona is 2-6 in their last eight games as an underdog, 1-7 in game two of a series, and 0-4 in Miley’s last four starts against the NL West. Arizona is 1-5 in Miley’s last six starts against San Francisco.
While Miley and the D-backs have had little to no success against the Giants the Giants have had little to no success against Arizona with Vogelsong on the mound so I will take my chances getting the Diamondbacks and a price.
