The Line: Arizona Diamondbacks / San Francisco Giants -- Over/Under:

TV: FSAZ, NSBA

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

The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Diamondbacks have scored six runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won four straight games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 160 hits and 76 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and Nick Ahmed have combined for 255 hits and 172 RBI. Alex Young gets the ball, and he is 5-3 with a 4.04 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. Young is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA and seven strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Giants have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants have won six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 126 hits and 71 RBI while Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford have combined for 191 hits and 100 RBI. Tyler Beede gets the ball, and he is 3-7 with a 5.82 ERA and 85 strikeouts this season. Beede is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks are 5-2 in their last 7 Monday games, 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 3-7 in their last 10 overall. The Giants are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series, 14-4 in their last 18 vs. National League West and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Diamondbacks are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in San Francisco and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 7-3 in Giants last 10 home games. The under is 5-1 in Diamondbacks last 6 overall.

Young has allowed 23 hits and 14 earned runs in his last 20.1 innings, and he has a 3.27 ERA and .232 allowed batting average on the road. Beede has allowed 26 hits and 17 runs in his last 16.2 innings, and he has a 5.14 ERA and .271 allowed batting average at home. Beede scares the hell out of me, especially with his numbers at home this season and his inability to keep the ball in the park. However, the San Francisco Giants have more to play for and are coming off an impressive series over the Oakland A's. I just have to think the Giants will find a way to win and remain in the thick of the playoff chase.
