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

The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a bounce back win after winning five of their last seven games. The Diamondbacks have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won nine of their last 14 games when scoring at least three runs. David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 54 hits and 27 RBI while Ketel Marte and Paul Goldschmidt have combined for 92 hits and 39 RBI. Patrick Corbin gets the ball, and he is 5-2 with a 2.99 ERA and 98 strikeouts this season. Corbin is 6-7 with a 3.16 ERA and 100 strikeouts in his career against the Giants. 

The San Francisco Giants look to stay hot while building on their five-game winning streak. The Giants have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The San Francisco Giants have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring more than three runs. Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 66 hits and 25 RBI while Brandon Belt and Evan Longoria have combined for 115 hits and 62 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he was 4-9 with a 3.32 ERA and 101 strikeouts last season. Bumgarner is 9-10 with a 2.58 ERA and 180 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks are 6-1 in their last 7 Tuesday games, 1-9 in their last 10 road games and 1-5 in Corbins last 6 starts. The Giants are 5-0 in their last 5 home games, 1-4 in Bumgarners last 5 home starts and 1-5 in Bumgarners last 6 starts. The Diamondbacks are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings, 1-4 in Corbins last 5 road starts vs. Giants and the Giants are 0-4 in Bumgarners last 4 starts vs. Diamondbacks.

Corbin has been really solid this season, but he's coming off a game against the Reds in which he allowed six runs in six innings. Current Giants hitters are also hitting a solid .266 against Corbin in 256 at bats with seven homers. The San Francisco Giants play their best ball at home and are on one of those hot streaks again where the offense is rolling and the bullpen shuts the door. Oh, this is also the season debut for Bumgarner, so you know there's going to be a different type of energy in the sir tonight. I'm backing the Giants once again.
