Hernandez drives in winning run

Pinch hitter Gorkys Hernandez drove in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning last night to send the Giants to a 1-0 victory over Arizona. Joe Panik was 1-for-3 with a walk in the triumph. Steven Duggar was 0-for-3 with a walk and scored the game's only run. Nick Hundley ended the contest 2-for-4. Will Smith picked up the win in relief as he threw a perfect top of the ninth inning.

Ahmed, Marte have two hits each

Ketel Marte was 2-for-4 with a double, while Nick Ahmed also finished 2-for-4 to combine for four of the Diamondbacks' six hits in the game. Paul Goldschmidt was 1-for-3 with a walk, while David Peralta added a pinch-hit single. Brad Ziegler took the loss in relief as he allowed one earned run on one hit with a walk in one-third of an inning.

Zack Godley (13-7, 4.59 ERA) will start today for Arizona, while San Francisco counters with Dereck Rodriguez (6-1, 2.30).

MLB Betting Trends


The D-backs are 3-12 in their last 15 Wednesday games. The under is 5-2-1 in the last eight Arizona road games. 

San Francisco

The under is 7-2 in Rodriguez' last nine starts overall. The Giants are 8-2 in the last 10 meetings.


Godley hasn't pitched well his last two starts, but previously had been in really good form and could very easily turn it back around tonight. Rodriguez has been a revelation as a rookie for the Giants and is facing a struggling Arizona offense. This is a park made for pitching and I think it safely stays under the projected total again tonight.
