The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Giants have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Giants have won eight of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Mike Yastrzemski leads the Giants with 37 hits and 24 RBI while Donovan Solano and Wilmer Flores have combined for 69 hits and 39 RBI. Johnny Cueto gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 5.40 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. Cueto is 11-3 with a 3.14 ERA and 100 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win after losing nine of their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 16 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have lost seven straight games when scoring three or less runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 41 hits and 10 RBI while Starling Marte and Christian Walker have combined for 76 hits and 35 RBI. Taylor Clarke gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 2.33 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Clarke is 1-2 with a 9.00 ERA and eight strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 2-5 in their last 7 road games, 2-5 in their last 7 games as a road underdog and 7-3 in their last 10 overall. The Diamondbacks are 8-3 in their last 11 home games, 3-7 in their last 10 Sunday games and 1-5 in their last 6 games as a favorite. The over is 6-1-2 in Giants last 9 road games. The under is 7-2 in Diamondbacks last 9 overall. The Giants are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Arizona.
Johnny Cueto has allowed 16 earned runs and 22 hits in his last 27.1 innings while Taylor Clarke has allowed five earned runs and 10 hits in his last 15.2 innings. Cueto obviously isn't the pitcher we're used to seeing, as he continues to work his way back from injury. However, the Giants continue to find ways to win and continue to be underdogs regardless of opponent. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost of their last 10 games and continue to be favorites. I'm not laying juice with the Diamondbacks. Give me the Giants and the plus money... Again.
