The San Francisco Giants had a very flat loss on Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but it wasn’t all bad: the Los Angeles Dodgers also lost (more like the Loss Angeles Dodgers, am I right), keeping the Giants hold in the NL West at 3.5 games.

Regardless of what happened last night, the Giants are still one of baseball’s best teams and the Diamondbacks are still one of baseball’s worst teams, so San Francisco has to like their odds going into this one.

They’ll be sending Kevin Gausman to the mound. Gausman has been the team’s ace this season, but has struggled since the All-Star break, with 17 hits, 9 walks, and 11 earned runs in 11.2 innings. The DBacks are countering with Zac Gallen, a very talented young pitcher mired in a highly mediocre season.
