Two-game sweeps aren’t quite as exciting as three or four-game sweeps, but the San Francisco Giants should still go for one, in my opinion.

When: 6:40 p.m. PT
Where: Chase Field, Phoenix, Arizona
Regional broadcast: NBC Sports Bay Area (available on fuboTV)

Lineups

Buster Posey is still in the lineup, which I’m guessing means he’ll only play in two of the four games against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

  1. RF — Mike Yastrzemski (L) — .221/.329/.471 — 125 OPS+
  2. C — Buster Posey (R) — .351/.429/.631 — 197 OPS+
  3. LF — Alex Dickerson (L) — .236/.296/.396 — 95 OPS+
  4. 1B — Darin Ruf (R) — .228/.361/.506 — 144 OPS+
  5. SS — Brandon Crawford (L) — .261/.338/.545 — 146 OPS+
  6. 3B — Evan Longoria (R) — .257/.357/.456 — 130 OPS+
  7. CF — Mike Tauchman (L) — .209/.321/.319 — 83 OPS+
  8. 2B — Mauricio Dubón (R) — .238/.277/.343 — 76 OPS+
  9. RHP — Johnny Cueto — 3.34 ERA, 2.89 FIP, 26 K and 6 BB in 32.1 IP

And here’s the Diamondbacks crew. Hopefully we get to see Madison Bumgarner as a pinch-hitter.

  1. 2B — Josh Rojas (L) — .288/.355/.482 — 128 OPS+
  2. CF — Ketel Marte (S) — .349/.383/.605 — 167 OPS+
  3. 3B — Eduardo Escobar (S) — .230/.271/.471 — 99 OPS+
  4. LF — David Peralta (L) — .273/.332/.459 — 115 OPS+
  5. C — Carson Kelly (R) — .333/.482/.595 — 195 OPS+
  6. RF — Josh Reddick (L) — .167/.167/.333 — 33 OPS+
  7. 1B — Pavin Smith (L) — .254/.301/.399 — 91 OPS+
  8. SS — Nick Ahmed (R) — .198/.268/.294 — 55 OPS+
  9. RHP — Merrill Kelly — 5.05 ERA, 4.36 FIP, 46 K and 16 BB in 51.2 IP

Enjoy the baseball, friends.
