I’m backing the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday with Walker over Stratton.  The Diamondbacks have dropped four straight Taijuan Walker starts, but they certainly weren’t all his fault and I believe he and they are getting “just what the doctor ordered” to land in the win column on Saturday.  Walker has a 3.05 ERA & 0.90 WHIP in his last three starts, but he’s received little help from his offense.  We expect that to change tonight when the D-backs step-in against young Chris Stratton.

The righthander has allowed 12 earned runs and 23 base runners in his last three appearances, spanning just 11 innings. His lone start did not go well, getting knocked all over the park by Detroit. Arizona has dominated righthanders this season, nearly 20 games over .500, while averaging over 5 rpg.  Meanwhile, the Giants are averaging just 3.84 rpg at home against righties this season. Arizona enters on a 9-1 run against teams playing less than .400 baseball, while the Giants have won just 8 of their last 26 against teams with a winning record.  I’m backing the Diamondbacks on Saturday.  Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
