Matt Moore has been hit or miss all season long except for on the road where he has an ERA over six and an allowed batting average of .306. Moore's career numbers aren't much better against Arizona, allowing 31 hits in 113 at bats. Arizona hasn't lost a game with Ray on the mound since July 28 when he pitched just 1.2 innings, and he's allowed two or less runs in eight of his last 10 starts. Ray is also 3-0 against the Giants this season and just shut them down a couple weeks ago. The price isn't kind in this one, but there's a nice pitching edge for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
