San Francisco vs Arizona by Sors
The Giants have. 189 BA with 15 runs in the last eight games, but I expect better efficiency in offense from San Francisco today, given the fact that the Diamondbacks will send to the mound Rubby De La Rossa (2-0 with a 7.15 ERA), who is far from his best shape at the start of the new season, as the right-hander yielded 8 hits and 6 runs over 5 1/3 innings in his previous start against the Giants on April 7 (7-6) and 3 runs on 6 hits over six innings versus the San Diego Padres last Monday (8-4).
De La Rossa is 1-0 with a 8.18 ERA in two starts and a relief appearance against the Giants so far in his career.
Buster Posey is 2-for-2, with a homer, 2 RBI and a walk against him, Justin Maxwell is 1-for-1 with a homer, Brandon Belt is 2-for-4, with 1 HR and 2 RBI, Angel Pagan is 2-for-5, with 1 RBI and two walks, Brandon Crawford is 2-for-6, with a homer, while Nori Aoki is 2-for-7, with 1 RBI and a walk.
The Diamondbacks (.272 BA with 37 runs in the last seven games) will face Chris Heston (1-1 with a 0.69 ERA), who pitched well in his previous start versus Arizona, as the right-hander yielded 3 hits and 2 runs, while striking out five over six innings for a 5-2 win on April 8.
Paul Goldschmidt is 1-for-2 with a walk against Heston, but Jake Lamb, David Peralta, A.J. Pollock and Mark Trumbo are a combined 1-for-10.
I think that the Giants will manage to win the third game of this series.
