Offense

The Giants have been solid hitting the ball throughout the season. San Francisco has a .234 batting average, which is 24th in the league. The Giants have earned an OBP of .318, which is 10th in the MLB. San Francisco has posted a .713 OPS, which is 14th in the league. The Giants have a BA of .231 against right handers.

The Diamondbacks have earned an OPS of .694, which is 19th in the MLB. Arizona has hit .221 against righties this season.

These two teams have been solid hitting the ball on the season and will look to step up in this one. The Diamondbacks have earned 16 hits and 14 runs this series. San Francisco has posted 10 hits and 3 runs in those games. The Giants will look to step up early on offense in this one. If either team can hit well early, it could be enough for the win.

Pitching Preview

Logan Webb will likely get the nod on the mound for San Francisco on Wednesday afternoon. Webb has started in 20 games this season, going 9-3 in those matchups. He has put up an ERA of 2.77 and a 1.12 WHIP in those outings. Webb’s last start was against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He gave up five hits and one run through six innings in the no decision.

I expect Zac Gallen to get the start at pitcher for the Diamondbacks in this one. Gallen has earned a record of 5-2 throughout his 18 starts this season. He has posted a 3.31 ERA and a WHIP of 1.02 in his games played. Gallen pitched seven innings in his last start against the Washington Nationals. He gave up two hits en route to the win.

These two pitchers have been strong this season and will look for a big win. Webb has won his last four decisions entering this matchup. Gallen is coming off a win and will look to build on it. Arizona has a slight edge in the bullpen. The D-Backs relievers have a 4.26 ERA, which is 24th in the MLB. San Francisco’s bullpen has an ERA of 4.41, which is 26th in the league.

Pick Overview

The Giants have struggled heavily in their last stretch of games, but will look to bounce back in this one. San Francisco has lost the first two games of this set, but I think they will bounce back. The Giants have the edge at the bat and will look for another strong start from Webb. If San Francisco can get the early lead, I like their chances to earn the win.

Bovada has the Giants listed as a -116 against the money line in this one. This implies that San Francisco will win this game around 53.7 percent of the time. I think that this line could be bigger with the Giants trying to end this losing streak. As slight favorites in this matchup, I like the value on San Francisco.
