The San Francisco Giants continue to put up crooked numbers during this winning stretch, and that shouldn't change here. Merrill Kelly has been hittable this month, allowing 20 hits and 12 runs in his last 25 innings, and he's allowing a .241 batting average at home compared to a .203 allowed batting average on the road. We shouldn't need much offense from the Arizona Diamondbacks to get us over this reasonable total. Give me the over.
