After a strong comeback in the second game of the series, San Francisco looks to take complete control of the series against Arizona. After having a day off to reflect on the blown save, the Giants responded with an 8-4 whooping of their NL West opponent. Lead-off hitter Gorkys Hernandez was stellar with four RBIs recorded in the win. Starting pitcher Johnny Cueto, who also counted as one of the runs scored, picked up the victory despite having a mediocre night, giving up four earned runs and six hits in five innings pitched. First pitch is scheduled for 9:40 PM Eastern time and the game can be seen on MLB.tv, NBC Sports Bay Area, and FSN Arizona.

Giants (1-1, 5th NL West)

Projected Starting Lineup:

  • 1: Gorkys Hernandez (R) - center fielder
  • 2: Brandon Belt (L) - first baseman
  • 3: Hunter Pence (R) - right fielder
  • 4: Buster Posey (R) - catcher
  • 5: Brandon Crawford (L) - shortstop
  • 6: Eduardo Nunez (R) - third baseman
  • 7: Jarrett Parker (L) - left fielder
  • 8: Joe Panik (L) - second baseman
  • 9: Matt Moore (L) - pitcher

Matt Moore will start his first full season with the Giants after wrapping up his 2016 campaign with the team. Overall, he went a mediocre 13-12 with a 4.08 ERA. Moore did shine in their Divisional Series against the Chicago Cubs by allowing just one run in his outing, and he's hoping to bring more of those moments in 2017.

Diamondbacks (1-1, 2nd NL West)

Projected starting lineup:

  • 1: A.J. Pollock (R) - center fielder
  • 2: Chris Owings (R) - right fielder
  • 3: Paul Goldschmidt (R) - first baseman
  • 4: Jake Lamb (L) - third baseman
  • 5: Yasmany Tomas (R) - left fielder
  • 6: Brandon Drury (R) - second baseman
  • 7: Chris Iannetta (R) - catcher
  • 8: Nick Ahmed (R) - shortstop
  • 9: Taijuan Walker (R) - pitcher

Taijuan Walker will make his debut with the Diamondbacks after ending his four-year stint with Seattle.

He ended it winning four of his last five starts, but didn't make the cut for the Mariners in the offseason and was traded away. Walker is hoping to continue where he left off.

San Francisco is a close favorite at -110 on the moneyline and the run total is set at 9.5. The Giants are 14-3 in their last 17 meetings with the Diamondbacks.
