The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants meet Friday in MLB action at Oracle Park.

The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Diamondbacks have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 102 hits and 51 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and David Peralta have combined for 171 hits and 107 RBI. Merrill Kelly gets the ball, and he is 7-7 with a 3.93 ERA and 77 strikeouts this season. Kelly is 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants could use a win after losing eight of their last 12 games. The Giants have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 12 games. The San Francisco Giants have lost six straight games when scoring three or less runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 67 hits and 37 RBI while Joe Panik and Steven Duggar have combined for 119 hits and 49 RBI. Shaun Anderson gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 3.94 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 0-1 with a 4.91 ERA and three strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks are 0-5 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 4-0 in Kelly's last 4 starts with 4 days of rest and 4-1 in Kelly's last 5 starts. The Giants are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in Anderson's last 5 starts during game 2 of a series. The Diamondbacks are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in San Francisco and the over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 3-1-1 in Giants last 5 Friday games. The over is 9-3 in Diamondbacks last 12 overall.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are 4-1 with Kelly on the mound this month, as he's allowed just nine earned runs while striking out 32 in his last 34.1 innings. Anderson has been sharp in his own right, posting a 3.52 ERA in his last 30.2 innings, but he has very little to show for it due to the Giants inability to score. It's the same song and dance with these Giants year after year. They can't score. The Diamondbacks are enjoying some nice success this week and have a much more reliable lineup. In a true pick em game, give me the road team.

Pick:
Arizona Diamondbacks -110
