Well, it’s time for the San Francisco Giants to play their final home game of the 2022 season. And it’s also a chance for the Giants to win the series against the Arizona Diamondbacks, which would mark their fourth consecutive series victory.

The Giants are going for yet another bullpen game, with lefty Scott Alexander taking the mound for the second straight game (he gave up no hits or walks in 1.1 innings to start Saturday). Alexander has been spectacular in 16 games since joining the Giants, with a 1.10 ERA, a 2.87 FIP, and 10 strikeouts to 1 walk in 16.1 innings. He looks to be playing himself into a role in the 2023 bullpen.

For the Diamondbacks it’s veteran righty Zach Davies, who has a 2-5 record, a 4.18 ERA, a 4.83 FIP, and 99 strikeouts to 47 walks in 129.1 innings. I’m oddly fascinated by Davies having just seven decisions in 26 starts this year. He faced the Giants one time earlier this year, and gave up a run in 5 innings.

Go Giants!
