The San Francisco Giants have scored 7 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 4 of their last 5 games. The Giants have lost 6 of their last 7 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Thairo Estrada leads the Giants with 76 hits and 39 RBI, while Wilmer Flores and Mike Yastrzemski have combined for 141 hits and 89 RBI. Logan Webb gets the ball, and he is 9-3 with a 2.77 ERA and 103 strikeouts this season. Webb is 3-0 with a 1.17 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have scored 17 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 4 of their last 5 games. The Diamondbacks have won 6 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs.

The Giants are 0-5 in their last 5 road games and 0-5 in their last 5 overall. The Diamondbacks are 0-4 in their last 4 Wednesday games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 5-1 in Giants last 6 Wednesday games. The under is 5-1 in Diamondbacks last 6 overall. The Giants are 18-8 in the last 26 meetings in Arizona and 35-16 in the last 51 meetings.
Logan Webb has been terrific this season, and that includes allowing 7 earned runs in his last 32 innings. However, it may not matter with the San Francisco Giants in their current form and the lack of offense. Zac Gallen has been solid in his own right, and the Arizona Diamondbacks have quietly been one of the more impressive teams this week. I can’t back the Giants with the way they’re playing. Give me the Diamondbacks at home and the cheap price.
