The San Francisco Giants play the third of this four-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight at Oracle Park.

Taking the mound for the Giants will be right-handed ace Logan Webb, who enters tonight’s game with a 3.49 ERA, 3.43 FIP, with 24 walks to 140 strikeouts in a league-leading 141.2 innings pitched. Webb’s last start was in the Giants’ 3-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Friday, in which he allowed three runs on six hits with four strikeouts in seven and a third innings.

He’ll be facing off against the Diamondbacks’ 24 year-old right-handed rookie Slade Cecconi, who will be making his MLB debut tonight. In 20 starts in his first season with the Diamondbacks’ Triple-A Reno affiliate this season, Cecconi has put up a 6.38 ERA, with 29 walks to 104 strikeouts in 103 innings.
