The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants meet Saturday in MLB action at Oracle Park.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Diamondbacks have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won four of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 59 hits and 30 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and Ketel Marte have combined for 108 hits and 72 RBI. Taylor Clarke gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 2.00 ERA and four strikeouts this season. This will be Clarke’s first career game against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants could use a win after losing nine of their last 14 games. The Giants have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The San Francisco Giants have won four of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 44 hits and 22 RBI while Joe Panik and Kevin Pillar have combined for 76 hits and 38 RBI. Andrew Suarez gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA and five strikeouts this season. Suarez is 1-2 with a 7.16 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 4-12 in their last 16 Saturday games, 1-5 in their last 6 vs. National League West and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The Giants are 5-12 in their last 17 home games, 1-4 in their last 5 Saturday games and 1-5 in Suarez's last 6 starts. The Diamondbacks are 4-10 in the last 14 meetings and the under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 5-2-1 in Suarez's last 8 starts overall. The under is 4-1 in Diamondbacks last 5 overall.
W have two pitchers who have thrown a combined 15 innings this season, so it's hard to make a real case for either side based off who is on the mound. This is a very quick turnaround after a Friday game that dragged on forever due to the Arizona Diamondbacks not being able to stop scoring. This is also a low total. I'm siding with the over. The Diamondbacks are dialed in after 21 hits and 18 runs last night, and the San Francisco Giants have shown flashes here and there of improved offense. There should be enough carryover from last night to get us over this reasonable total, especially with two inexperienced pitchers on the hill.
