Giants welcome Bumgarnerless DBacks

The San Francisco Giants won't be seeing a familiar face this time around as they take on the Diamondbacks for the first time this season. Madison Bumgarner won't be on the mound for this series vs Arizona as the former Giants ace is on the injured list with a mid-back strain. Tonight the Giants will try to add on to their 3 game winning streak with Logan Webb making the start. Webb made his MLB debut last season against the DBacks and received the win. The Rocklin, California native went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 earned) with 7 strikeouts and walked 1 batter as the Giants rolled 11-6.

Robbie Ray will be on the mound today for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He is 1-2 in 5 starts this year and has pitched 22 innings totaling 27 strikeouts, and has an 8.59 ERA. He leads the league with 20 walks including issuing 6 twice this year and has yet to eclipse 5 innings in a start. Last season the 28-year-old left-hander was 12-8 in 33 starts for Arizona in which he struck out 235 batters out of the 747 batters he faced. He took on the Giants 4 times in 2019, he was 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA and struck out 20 batters and is 5-2 in14 career starts vs his NL West rival with a 3.33 ERA.

First pitch is at 6:45 pm
