|Date & Time||Sunday June 23, 2019, 4:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: San Francisco Giants +120 / Arizona Diamondbacks -141 -- Over/Under: 9
The San Francisco Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Sunday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Giants have scored 26 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The San Francisco Giants have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 65 hits and 36 RBI while Steven Duggar and Joe Panik have combined for 115 hits and 49 RBI. Shaun Anderson gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 4.08 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. This will be Anderson’s second career game against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks could use a win here to snap a six-game losing streak. The Diamondbacks have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost five straight 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 160 hits and 99 RBI. Merrill Kelly gets the ball, and he is 7-7 with a 3.99 ERA and 68 strikeouts this season. This will be Kelly’s second career game against the Giants.
The Giants are 5-1 in their last 6 games vs. a right-handed starter, 5-12 in their last 17 Sunday games and 10-28 in their last 38 during game 3 of a series. The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series, 4-13 in their last 17 Sunday games and 0-5 in their last 5 overall. The Giants are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Arizona and the over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 6-1 in Kellys last 7 starts overall. The over is 4-0 in Giants last 4 overall.
I've lost a fw times this week thinking the Arizona Diamondbacks were going to turn things around, and they continue to find ways to lose. So, while Kelly has gone deep into games and allowed one or less runs in three of his last four starts, I'm kind of done backing Arizona at the moment, especially in the favorite role. Anderson has allowed three or less runs in six of his seven career starts and has a decent 3.86 ERA on the road in 18.2 innings. The San Francisco Giants offense is also actually putting up runs consistently, something we haven't been able to say in years. Simply because we're getting plus money and the D-Backs can't win all of a sudden, I'll side with the Giants on the road.
