Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
The Giants have had an excellent season so far, but the lead in their division is only 4 games. They need to keep playing well and this Diamondbacks series is a great chance for them to do so.
San Francisco is a much better team and they have done well against teams with losing records this year. I look for them to take care of business against Arizona in this one.
Kevin Gausman just faced these guys last week and he was great. I look for him to achieve similar results on Wednesday. Merrill Kelly is a tough customer, but I feel the Giants can do enough against him to get a win.
I will go with the Giants on the run line.
