The San Francisco Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Saturday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The San Francisco Giants need a win here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Giants have scored four runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Giants have won seven of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Donovan Solano leads the Giants with 36 hits and 18 RBI while Mike Yastrzemski and Wilmer Flores have combined for 68 hits and 43 RBI. Trevor Cahill gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 1.64 ERA and 14 strikeouts this season. Cahill is 0-2 with a 4.30 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win after losing eight of their last nine games. The Diamondbacks have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have won seven of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 41 hits and 10 RBI while Starling Marte and Christian Walker have combined for 74 hits and 33 RBI. Luke Weaver gets the ball, and he is 1-4 with a 7.77 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. Weaver is 3-2 with a 2.22 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games, 6-2 in their last 8 games as an underdog and 7-2 in their last 9 overall. The Diamondbacks are 7-3 in their last 10 Saturday games, 7-3 in their last 10 home games and 0-8 in their last 8 overall. The under is 7-1 in Diamondbacks last 8 overall. The Giants are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Arizona and 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
Trevor Cahill has allowed two runs and five hits through 11 innings this season and has seven walks to go with 14 strikeouts. Luke Weaver has allowed 15 runs and 23 hits in his last 21 innings. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost eight of their last nine games and Weaver has been hot garbage all month long. Not sure why Arizona is favored here, and I certainly don't get why the Giants continue to get disrespect from oddsmakers. Give me the Giants and the plus money.
