The Diamondbacks will look to bounce back from Friday's 5-2 loss to the defending champion San Francisco Giants with a win in tonight's Game 2.
Arizona will start Joe Saunders, who is 0-1 this season and has a 6.00 ERA. He will pitch against the Giants' Barry Zito, who has very similar stats thus far this season (also 0-1 with an ERA of 5.56).
The Diamondbacks are 5-7 on the season while the Giants are 7-6.
Game 2 starts at 5:10 p.m. and will be broadcast locally on Fox Sports Arizona. AZ Snakepit will have a lively game thread for online viewers.
