*3 Star Play on Giants ML* The San Francisco Giants have outperformed my expectations in a big way this year. The Giants lineup has been way better than I expected. They have been particularly good against left handed pitching.
The Giants are 5th in the majors in weighted on base average against left handed pitching. San Francisco has hit for power against lefties as well (6th in ISO). Alex Young is a middle of the road lefty at best and I expect the Giants to create plenty of scoring opportunities here.
The Diamondbacks bullpen was never a strength this year, but they traded away multiple guys who were key to this bullpen in the last few years. Arizona has a 5.74 ERA in the last 14 days from their bullpen pitchers. The Giants bullpen has been much improved of late (2.75 ERA in the last 14 days).
The DBacks have nothing to play for at all. Arizona is 2-14 in their last 16 games. They are 0-9 in their last 9 vs. a right handed starter.
Take San Francisco.
