Tonight we have the Diamondbacks taking on the Giants. The Dbacks enter this game eliminated from the playoffs as they have been one of the worst teams in the league. They'll look to end their season on a high note tonight. The Giants enter this game as the top dog in baseball with a record of 103-54, 2 games ahead of their division foes the Dodgers. They'll look to further secure their top spot in the NL West as they take on a weak Diamondbacks team.
Merrill Kelly (7-11, 4.59 ERA) will be on the mound for the Dbacks when they take on the Giants. Kelly enters this game with a 1.29 WHIP and 4.54 XFIP. This season he carries a 19.1% strikeout rate along with a low 5.4% walk rate. In his two starts since returning from injury Kelly has been knocked around, throwing 10.2 innings and allowing 10 earned runs in the process. He has had reverse splits this year as right handed hitters have been able to get to him for power and contact. He could have has hands full once again tonight against this daunting Giants squad.
Alex Wood (10-4, 4.00 ERA) will take the mound for the Giants when they host the Diamondbacks. Wood enters this game with a 1.21 WHIP and 3.76 XFIP. This season he carries a nice 26% strikeout rate along with a 6.9% walk rate. Wood has been decent this season for the Giants, though this Arizona team has been able to get to him a few times this year. He gives up some hard contact and power to right handed hitters but has handled lefties well in the split.
I'll look to target the total in this one as I think both offenses will be bale to produce some runs tonight as they are fimiliar with each other.
PICK: Over 8 (-105)
