San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants have won four of their last five games giving them a 61-61 record on the season. The team only trails the Cubs 3.5 games for the second NL Wild Card spot. The Giants need to win games like this against the Diamondbacks who are in the same position as them. San Francisco has struggled to make contact as a team as they’re only hitting .240 on the year. The offense is led by Kevin Pillar and Evan Longoria. Pillar is hitting .260 with 15 home runs, while Longoria is batting .255 with 15 homers.
At this stage it’s unclear who is pitching for San Francisco. As a team the Giants have a 4.36 ERA. The rotation is led by Jeff Samardzija and Madison Bumgarner. Samardzija is 9-9 with a 3.55 ERA, and Bumgarner is 8-7 with a 3.63 ERA.
The Diamondbacks have lost four straight games. As a result they are tied with the Giants for the second spot in the NL West. Winning the division is not a possibility as they are 19.5 games behind the Dodgers. Arizona’s offense is the reason they are still in wild card position. The team ranks fourth in the National League in scoring (629). Ketel Marte leads the way on offense with a .320 average and 24 homers. Eduardo Escobar (27 homers) and Christian Walker (21 homers) have also produced. Arizona certainly misses Zack Greinke’s arm as their only reliable starter is Robbie Ray (3.99 ERA).
On the mound for Arizona is Merrill Kelly. Kelly is 8-12 with a 4.75 ERA on the season. In his last outing, Kelly struggled allowing six runs on nine hits in five innings against Colorado. Against the Giants this year he has a 2.76 ERA in 15.1 innings.
