Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants meet Monday in MLB action at AT&T Park.

The Arizona Diamondbacks look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Diamondbacks have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six straight games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won seven of their last 12 games when scoring more than one run. David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 52 hits and 26 RBI while Ketel Marte and A.J. Pollock have combined for 89 hits and 49 RBI. Zack Godley gets the ball, and he is 5-4 with a 4.38 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. Godley is 2-1 with a 4.67 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants can get back to a .500 record with their fifth straight victory. The Giants have allowed one run in their last three games and four or less runs in six of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants have won 12 of their last 14 games when allowing four or less runs. Offensively, Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 64 hits and 24 RBI while Brandon Belt and Evan Longoria have combined for 115 hits and 62 RBI. Derek Holland gets the ball, and he is 3-6 with a 4.94 ERA and 48 strikeouts this season. This will be Holland’s second career game against the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks are 13-6 in their last 19 during game 1 of a series, 1-9 in their last 10 road games and 4-0 in Godleys last 4 starts with 5 days of rest. The Giants are 4-0 in their last 4 home games, 5-2 in their last 7 home games vs. a right-handed starter and 1-4 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series. The Diamondbacks are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings and the under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

Neither of these pitchers have been all that great this season, so there's no real edge on either side. The difference is that the Arizona Diamondbacks have been awful on the road as of late, while the San Francisco Giants play their best ball at home. Also, the Giants have a little pep in their step now that guys are getting healthy. Joe Panik recently returned from the DL, Mark Melancon made his season debut yesterday and Madison Bumgarner takes the mound for the first time tomorrow. The Giants are feeling good about themselves right now. Give me the home team and the slight plus money.

Pick:
San Francisco Giants +105
