Bumgarner guides Giants to win
Bumgarner threw five one-run innings for the Giants in Thursday's 8-1 win at the Diamondbacks, allowing seven hits with five strikeouts and three walks on 101 pitches. Buster Posey helped lead the offense by going 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and a run. Evan Longoria contributed a solo home run in five at-bats. Gorkys Hernandez went 2-for-5 with a run. Austin Slater was 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, three runs and two RBIs. Steven Duggar finished 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI.
Peralta has four-hit night
David Peralta banged out three singles and a double in five at-bats last night in the loss to San Francisco. Eduardo Escobar finished 1-for-4 with an RBI. Ketel Marte ended the game 2-for-3 with a walk and a run. Greinke allowed two earned runs on four hits with five strikeouts and a walk over six innings to take the loss. The D-backs bullpen allowed six runs (five earned) over the final three innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The under is 13-3-1 in the last 17 Giants road games. The under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings in Arizona.
The Diamondbacks are 8-2 in their last 10 Friday games. Arizona is 5-13 in its last 18 home games.
After falling to Bumgarner plus bullpen last night, the D-backs should bounce back in a much easier matchup against Stratton. Corbin has been up-and-down lately, but is always capable of a dominant start. If he allows three runs or less here, I think Arizona will be in great shape as it should score plenty off Stratton. I'm going to take a shot at the runline here to improve the payout.
