Shane’s Free Pick 

I don’t trust Nelson, and the Diamondbacks have had issues winning games when he’s been on the mound. Look for the Giants to chase him early, and then the bats are going to continue to run up the score against the bullpen also. The Diamondbacks won’t be keeping up and the Giants will secure the win.
