The Line: San Francisco Giants / Arizona Diamondbacks -- Over/Under:
The San Francisco Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Saturday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Giants have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants have won eight of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 63 hits and 36 RBI while Steven Duggar and Joe Panik have combined for 115 hits and 49 RBI. Tyler Beede gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 6.67 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. This will be Beede’s second career game against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks could use a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Diamondbacks have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 95 hits and 51 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and David Peralta have combined for 157 hits and 99 RBI. Zack Godley gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 6.52 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. Godley is 3-4 with a 6.52 ERA and 39 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 8-17 in their last 25 Saturday games, 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 4-1 in Beedes last 5 starts. The Diamondbacks are 4-0 in their last 4 Saturday games, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 4-9 in Godleys last 13 starts. The Giants are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Arizona and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 15-5-1 in Godleys last 21 starts with 5 days of rest. The over is 4-1-2 in Giants last 7 overall.
Good luck being on the right side of this game, as both of these pitchers have been hot garbage for much of the season. Beede is allowing a .278 batting average on the season through 28.1 innings and has a 6.75 ERA on the road. Godley is always a pitcher I look to fade, and he has a 7.09 ERA at home through 26.2 innings. The problem I have is that the Giants offense always lets me down when I try to get behind them and think they're starting to show some positives. The Arizona Diamondbacks also have to turn things around eventually, right? If forced to pick this game, I'd pinch my nose and back Arizona.
