Well, here’s hoping the San Francisco Giants new series goes better than the last one did. Thankfully for them, the Arizona Diamondbacks are not nearly as tough as the Los Angeles Dodgers were.

The Giants will kick things off by giving righty Jakob Junis the rock. Junis has been a nice signing for the Giants, with a 3.06 ERA, a 3.93 FIP, and 42 strikeouts to 10 walks in 50 innings. Due to an injury sustained last month, Junis has only pitched once since June 10, and it did not go well. So let’s hope this start is a step in the right direction.

He’ll be facing off against Diamondbacks right-hander Merill Kelly, who enters today’s game with a 3.26 ERA and a 3.35 FIP, with 89 strikeouts to 36 walks in 110.1 innings pitched. His last start was in the Diamondbacks’ 3-1 win over the San Diego Padres on the 17th, in which he allowed one run on six hits with five strikeouts in six innings.

Win the game, please.
