MLB: San Francisco Giants at Arizona Diamondbacks Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

It would behoove the San Francisco Giants to not lose two games in a row to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

It’s the final game of the first half of the season. Hit the 81-game on a high note, folks.


Game #81

Who: San Francisco Giants (50-30) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (23-60)
Where: Chase Field, Phoenix, Arizona
When: 6:40 p.m. PT
Regional broadcast: NBC Sports Bay Area (available on fuboTV)
National broadcast: None
Radio: KNBR 680 AM/104.5 FM


Lineups

Similar look for the Giants, but with Thairo Estrada getting his first start of the season.

  1. 1B — LaMonte Wade Jr. (L) — .257/.336/.485 — 125 OPS+
  2. RF — Mike Yastrzemski (L) — .224/.329/.475 — 120 OPS+
  3. C — Buster Posey (R) — .333/.420/.559 — 169 OPS+
  4. LF — Alex Dickerson (L) — .221/.290/.377 — 83 OPS+
  5. SS — Brandon Crawford (L) — .248/.331/.517 — 131 OPS+
  6. 3B — Wilmer Flores (R) — .265/.332/.444 — 113 OPS+
  7. CF — Steven Duggar (L) — .321/.395/.557 — 161 OPS+
  8. 2B — Thairo Estrada (R) — .000/.000/.000 — -100 OPS+ (2 PAs)
  9. LHP — Alex Wood — 3.91 ERA, 3.97 FIP, 73 K and 22 BB in 71.1 IP

And here’s the Diamondbacks crew, which still looks bad. Hopefully I didn’t jinx it. There are a lot of lefties considering that they’re facing an LHP. Not that I’m complaining.

  1. LF — Josh Rojas (L) — .259/.336/.440 — 112 OPS+
  2. SS — Nick Ahmed (R) — .218/.285/.316 — 65 OPS+
  3. 2B — Eduardo Escobar (S) — .243/.291/.461 — 103 OPS+
  4. 1B — Christian Walker (R) — .225/.271/.349 — 69 OPS+
  5. 3B — Asdrubal Cabrera (S) — .241/.343/.400 — 104 OPS+
  6. RF — Pavin Smith (L) — .270/.321/.407 — 99 OPS+
  7. C — Stephen Vogt (L) — .197/.299/.368 — 82 OPS+
  8. CF — Nick Heath (L) — .156/.250/.188 — 23 OPS+
  9. RHP — Zac Gallen — 3.69 ERA, 3.75 FIP, 46 K and 18 BB in 39 IP

Enjoy the baseball, friends.
