D-backs Vs. Giants: Wade Miley Goes For 16th Win As Diamondbacks Look To Rebound

The Arizona Diamondbacks host the San Francisco Giants on Saturday, looking to derail a hot Giants team and get back on a winning track. San Francisco took the series opener, 6-2.

Wade Miley (15-9, 3.07 ERA) takes the hill for Arizona. Miley has only faced San Francisco once this year, in a game in early April in which he pitched four scoreless innings out of the bullpen. Miley has given up three runs or less in four of his last five starts, although his last outing saw the San Diego Padres take him for five runs in 5⅓ innings. The Diamondbacks' bats came through for Miley on that night and the D'Backs picked up the win, 8-5.

Whether they can do the same against Barry Zito (11-8, 4.33 ERA) remains to be seen. Zito is 2-0 against the Diamondbacks this season, but he has struggled as of late. Zito's most recent start saw him pitch 6⅓ scoreless innings against the Dodgers, but in the two starts prior to that he gave up seven runs on 14 hits in a combined 7⅓ innings.
