Starting pitchers

Ryne Nelson vs. Anthony DeSclafani

Nelson has had his ups and downs in June. He held the Tigers runless before conceding five runs in four innings to the Phillies, and in his latest start, he let up three earned runs in five innings to the Brewers. He struggled to contain the Giants in his last start against San Fran in May, allowing four earned runs in 4.2 frames.

DeSclafani has seen some troubles on the mound in June. In two of his four starts this month, he left after allowing five earned runs in just three innings. In his latest start, he reached five innings, allowing three earned runs while recording six strikeouts and a walk. In his last start against the D-Backs, he conceded three earned runs in five innings and struck out two batters.

Over/Under pick

The totals of the first two games were both 13. With two pitchers taking the mound who have not been able to control opposing lineups in recent weeks, let’s continue betting on this trend.

Pick: Over 9

Moneyline pick

The D-Backs have now dropped two in a row to the Giants in this road series, and the Giants have won 12 of their last 13 games. Neither pitcher taking the mound has had a particularly auspicious or consistent June. Both teams have been able to get significant numbers on the scoreboard this series, so I’m less concerned with offensive prowess. I’m betting on Nelson here — he hasn’t struggled as much as DeSclafani in recent starts and should be able to set up the D-Backs for their first win of the series. Arizona has done well on the road this season.

Pick: Diamondbacks
