Lourdes Gurriel Jr. went 2-for-4 with a run scored on Wednesday against the Giants. Gurriel Jr. doubled in the first inning off Logan Webb and came around to score on a single by Jace Peterson. He added a base hit later in the game, but it was all the D-Backs could muster against Webb. The 29-year-old outfielder is hitting .252/.299/.458 with 16 homers and 58 RBI across 395 plate appearances.

J.D. Davis went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI on Wednesday in a 4-2 win against the Diamondbacks. Davis singles to lead off the fifth inning and scored the first run for the Giants on a triple by Brandon Crawford. With the bases loaded in the sixth, Davis doubled to drive in two runs, giving the Giants the lead. The 30-year-old slugger is hitting .260/.339/.435 with 14 homers and 54 RBI across 387 plate appearances.

Diamondbacks vs. Giants MLB BETTING PREDICTION
Pfaadt is 0-4 with an 8.20 ERA and is still in search of his first big-league win. He did face the Giants back on May 14 and pitched well, allowing only one run and one hit over five innings, but the rest of the season has been rough for the 24-year-old. On the other side, the Giants will open with Scott Alexander, then use a bullpen game the rest of the way. Despite Pfaadt’s issues keeping opposing offenses in check, I still like the under. The Giants are under-producing machines right now, cashing the under in seven consecutive games.
MLB BETTING PREDICTION: DIAMONDBACKS/GIANTS UNDER 8.5
