The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 10 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last six games. The Diamondbacks have lost 12 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 47 hits and 12 RBI while Christian Walker and David Peralta have combined for 81 hits and 47 RBI. Alex Young gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. Young is 2-1 with a 4.11 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants need a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Giants have cored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven straight games. The Giants have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Mike Yastrzemski leads the Giants with 44 hits and 27 RBI while Donovan Solano and Wilmer Flores have combined for 81 hits and 46 RBI. Johnny Cueto gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 4.75 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. Cueto is 11-3 with a 3.03 ERA and 106 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 8-21 in their last 29 road games, 1-4 in their last 5 Sunday games and 3-13 in their last 16 overall. The Giants are 5-2 in their last 7 games as a favorite. The under is 11-4 in Diamondbacks last 15 overall. The over is 12-4-1 in Giants last 17 home games. The Diamondbacks are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings.
Alex Young has allowed 13 earned runs and 26 hits in his last 24 innings while Johnny Cueto has allowed 17 earned runs and 25 hits in his last 34 innings. Cueto doesn't look like the Cueto we're used to seeing, but he's pitching for a Giants team that at least provides run support. The Arizona Diamondbacks can't score and aren't winning. I have no choice but to side with the Giants and the reasonable price.
