Merrill Kelly (9-3, 2.90) is scheduled to start for the Diamondbacks against opener Ryan Walker (2-0, 1.56). Kelly, whose NL Cy Young odds are +9000, will be pitching on four days of rest, and Walker, a rookie, on two days.

Walker will open for the third time this season and make his 14th appearance overall. He served as the opener Wednesday against the visiting San Diego Padres and worked one scoreless innings, allowing no hits and two walks while striking one out.

Conforto finished with three hits and four RBIs and Bailey had two hits and drove in two runs. Wade and J.D. Davis also had two hits each.

Diamondbacks vs Giants Prediction

Kelly has been one of the best pitchers in the NL, but the Giants are red-hot and too tempting to pass up at home. And, with a nod to Kelly, let’s take Wade under 0.5 hits. After all, he’s called Late Night LaMonte, not Early Afternoon LaMonte.

Picks: Giants -104 ML, LaMonte Wade Jr. Under 0.5 hits (+130)

Season Record: 31-12 (+16.7 units) ML; 2-2 (0.0 units) RL; 2-1 (+1.0 unit) O/U; 0-1 (-1.0 unit) same-game parlays; 1-1 (+1.0) player props; 35-16 (+17.7 units) overall.
