MLB Fantasy Baseball Game

Arizona will continue its road trip of 10 games against the Giants in a 4 game series at the AT&T Park.

While its a continuation of the D-Backs’ road swing, it will be an homecoming for the Giants who just played 3 games only at home so far. They will play their next 10 at home when Florida and San Diego visit them after Arizona.

KEY FACTORS OF THE GAME

• Peavy will try to rebound after a rough start against Colorado, allowing 6 runs, 11 hits in just 4 innings.

• Peavy was 1-1 against the D-Backs last year with a 7.20 ERA in 2 starts.

• Arizona’s regulars will be rested in the opener of the series. 1B Paul Goldschmidt, Right Fielder David Peralta and 2B Jean Segura are all off and  were all off in Sunday’s series finale against San Diego.

• Arizona has been playing poorly over the years in San Francisco but last season was different and they posted an 8-2 record there.
