The Diamondbacks come into this game with a 53-62 record overall and they had won two games in a row before they were defeated on Monday. The Diamondbacks' offense hasn’t been awful, but it’s still in the bottom half of the league. The Diamondbacks are averaging 4.33 runs per game which is 17th. Christian Walker is having quite the season hitting 27 home runs and driving in 67 RBIs.
The San Francisco Giants come into this game with a 58-57 record overall. The Giants offense has been good, but the pitching has been inconsistent. The Giants are averaging 4.57 runs per game and that is 8th in baseball. Wilmer Flores has hit 16 home runs and driven in 58 RBIs.

The better team in this game is probably the Giants, but the better pitcher is Kelly, and that is going to trump that here. Kelly sits with an ERA of 2.95 and he is going to slow down this Giants offense. The Diamondbacks are going to find some success against Junis who gave up six runs in his last start. Back the Diamondbacks to come away with the victory here.
