The San Francisco Giants look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Giants have scored 14 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants offense has been hot lately, and they’ve won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring more than three runs. Brandon Belt leads San Francisco with 89 hits, Brandon Crawford has 58 RBI and Buster Posey has 11 home runs. Jake Peavy takes the hill, and he’s 5-7 with a 5.14 ERA and 69 strikeouts this season. Peavy is 17-13 with a 4.47 ERA and 226 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 2-6 in their last 8 vs. National League West and 3-11 in Rays last 14 starts. The Giants are 23-6 in their last 29 vs. National League West and 4-1 in Peavys last 5 starts. The under is 13-5 in the last 18 meetings.
Peavy looked sharp in his last start and the Giants offense has been rolling over the last few weeks. Also, not sure how anybody can back the Diamondbacks with any confidence given the way their pitching staff has been getting rocked. Give me the Giants at home to win yet again.
