The San Francisco Giants look to build on their victory yesterday against the Arizona Diamondbacks when the teams meet up again on Sunday.
The Giants continue their series at Chase Field on Sunday as they look to get Matt Cain rolling who will take the hill looking for his first victory of the season as he currently sits with an 0-5 mark with a paltry 6.69 ERA. San Fran netted a big win yesterday and are now 20-18 on the season and will look for yet another as they match up against Rubby De La Rosa who is 4-4 with a 3.93 ERA and has actually pitched decently well for the most part and seems to be doing much better now that he is away from Coors Field.

The Diamondbacks were expected to do some damage in the NL West this season and while they are off to a bit of a slow start with a 17-21 record they are still very much in contention as the Giants and Dodgers are within striking distance. Arizona suffered a big blow when AJ Pollock went down with a season ending injury but they still have plenty of options to work with and as soon as they can get their rotation on the same page they should be a team to watch out for.
The Giants are 8-0 in their last eight games when their opponent allowed five or more runs in their previous game, 4-0 in their last four overall, and 6-1 in their last seven road games while the D-Backs are 1-8 in their last nine following a loss, 0-4 in their last four divisional games but 7-1 in their last eight games in which De La Rosa has four days rest. The Giants got the bets of the Diamondbacks on Saturday but I look for the tide to turn here as Matt Cain has been woeful and I think that continues today.
