On the mound for the Giants is Merrill Kelly who sits with a 10-5 record and an ERA of 2.95. In his last start against the Pirates, he went five innings giving up four hits and three runs. 

The Giants are 1-4 in their last five games on Tuesday. The over is 3-0-2 in Junis last five home starts. The over is 5-1 in the Giants last six games against a right-handed starter. The under is 6-1-1 in Kelly’s last eight Tuesday starts. 

The better team in this game is probably the Giants, but the better pitcher is Kelly, and that is going to trump that here.

Back the Diamondbacks to come away with the victory here.
